Comedian Louis C.K. Releases New Hour Long Special Today

by January 27, 2015 0 comments

Louis C.K. is a household name by now. Whether you love or hate his honest, caustic, and often tragic humor, you know who he is. His red, freckled face is everywhere. He’s won numerous awards for his TV show Louie,  for which he is the producer, director, editor, writer and star. Still, he finds time to do what made him known in the first place, stand-up comedy.

Today, Louis released his 6th comedy special, the second of which was released via his website. This trend, C.K. started two years ago with his special Live At The Beacon Theatre, which cost only $5 for a high-quality download. The current special Live At The Comedy Store has the same price-tag, with options for sound quality (mp3 or the lossless FLAC) while the special is released only in 1080p format.

The following is written on LouisCK.net in regards to the development of the latest special:

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 show is about an hour long. The opening act, who is seen at the beginning (good place for an opening act) is Jay London. One of my favorite club comics going way back to the late 80s when I first started in working in New York.

Louis goes on to plead with customers, not to torrent the file, an inevitability in today’s world.

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.

The video is available immediately for download. It can be purchased via credit card or PayPal. Its run time is approximately 1-hour.

Guess what we’re all doing tonight?
