Pointless Nonsense

Posted in movies, stand-up by Bill on December 24, 2011

Louis CK: Live at the Beacon Theater should be something you’ve already heard of, if you read any of the same websites I do, but if not, it’s a stand-up special he filmed himself and released online for $5, with no studio or other corporate involvement, and with no DRM. So it’s the kinda thing I’d want to see anyway, and the production and distribution is done the way I’d like it. So he got my $5. It’s been a big success, and the proceeds have been split pretty evenly between covering costs, staff bonuses, charitable donations, and for himself to do “terrible, horrible things with and none of that is any of your business.”

Anyway, the special itself is very good, but that won’t surprise anyone who’s familiar with his work. Nothing quite rises to the genius of his “everything’s amazing and nobody’s happy,” but there are quite a few inspired moments, and the rest is just generally funny.
