Louis CK: On-Demand and DRM-Free

I heart Louis CK.


His show “Louie” on FX has evolved from smart, succinct vignettes based on his candid blend of cynical yet sensitive stand-up to super-smart, short story-like mini-films that capture the awkwardness, exuberance and humanity of a life at the collision of “making it” and “figuring it out.”

(He gets some fantastic actors like Parker Posey to guest star, too.)

Now we have a reason to love Louie even more. After already leading the direct creator-to-consumer experiment by offering his comedy specials for just $5 online at LouisCK.nethe’s just announced that his next HBO Special will also be available as $5 download, DRM-free (read: other people can share it).

Super-smart, laugh-out-loud comedy. On-demand.

Buy what you want and no more, no less? Yes please.
