    Instead of broadcasting on HBO, Louis CK went the Radiohead route and produced and distributed his latest special on his website for $5.

    Just $5 for 2 streams and 3 HD downloads of his amazing comedy.

    I HIGHLY recommend it.

    The bit about smoking pot and being paranoid around strangers was just...oh my god.

    His best joke is still the 9/11 joke. It encapsulates everything that's good about him -- he makes you feel guilty about laughing, but you always end up laughing.

    Yeah, that one. So funny, even if it's some of the darkest humor ever.

    That joke is great. My next favorite is about his friend that drinks milk before sex.

    I also watched the new show. It's not his best, but it's still funny. It's only an hour though.

    I was at this show when he taped it. It was literally 2+ hours of straight hilarity. My face hurt from laughing so hard. Really, he's at the top of his game here. I can't recommend this show highly enough.

    personally i like the my daughter is an asshole one

    also i understand the mentality about being anti-torrenting, but if you really think about it the more people torrent your things the more popular you're going to be, the more tickets you'll sell, and the more DVDs you'll sell.

    you can put corporate restrictions on things but once the dvd is out there's no way you can stop people from doing it. imo the popularity you get has far greater long term monetary benefit. for example coehlo put on the alchemist on torrents himself and his book sales went drastically up.


    anyways, i bought the thing. in for some good laughs

    He's already shown a 'deleted scene' (below)

    I imagine this 4:30 is part of the other hour that was cut.
