Louis C.K. - Live at the Beacon Theater
Probably the hardest working man in showbiz. He never does the same act twice...which for a working comedian is absolutely astounding. That, and he's really, really funny. Hyper offensive...but really, really funny. Louis wanted to do a taped show, but wanted to skip the major studios and abandoned the HBO Comedy Special. Instead, he opted to perform an experiment. He made the above performance available, complete with high production value and financed by himself, for download on his website for $5...a far shot less than what the corporate stooges would charge you for the commercial DVD. Where the experiment comes in is whether he'd lose money, break even or make some money; whether consumers and fans would buy into this format. There was some significant risk bypassing the major studios and bank rolling this himself...and for that we are truly proud to call ourselves fans. Find out how he did, and get yourself a copy here.
