Last night Louis C.K. was on The Daily Show to talk about the $5 sale of his first-ever movie After Tonight with friend and host Jon Stewart. Of course they discussed the movie and how it’s existed for 16 years before anyone saw it. And about how Stewart gave his friend $5,000 to help pay for the film. But that now at www.louisck.net
In addition to his movie, Louis also revealed that he finances and taped the production for fellow comedian Todd Barry’s new stand-up special and plans to release that for $5 on his website this March (March 22nd) as well. Todd Barry: The Crowd Work Tour is just what it sounds like it will be. Last year, Barry embarked on a tour with no material. All he did was talk to the crowd and tell jokes about it. This will be the second time that Louis will release another comedian’s material via his website (the last being Tig Notaro) and hopefully we’ll get more of him putting his uber-comedian muscle behind other comics more often.
The Todd Barry talk is in the second clip around the 4:15 mark.
