Louis C.K. has released another $5 comedy special.
The comedian caused waves last year when he decided to turn ignore traditional distribution channels in order to release his material on his own website for $5. The move paid off and now Louis C.K. is releasing Live At The Comedy Store in the same way.
I developed and prepared this material over the last year or so, mostly in comedy clubs. This special kind of goes back to when I used to just make noises and be funny for no particular reason. It felt right to shoot this special in a club to give it that live immediate intimate feeling.
The one downside to this distribution method is that it’s pretty easy to steal and torrent. But don’t worry, Louis C.K. has a solution: He’s asking his fans not to steal his movie.
Please PLEASE don’t torrent this special. If you want to share it, direct people here. It’s so easy to drop the 5 dollars. We don’t make you join anything. We let you use the file any way you want. It costs a shitload of money to make these specials and I do it myself. I love offering it to you directly for so cheap and so easily. I would like that to continue to be a good idea.
Here’s a clip from Louis C.K.’s new comedy special.
