Easily the best $5 you'll spend in 2011

There’s really no reason to sing Louis C.K.’s praises, because unless you’ve been living under a rock you know that the Mexican comedian (yes, he’s really Mexican) is presently the funniest standup on the face of the Earth. Until Chris Rock comes out with Bigger & Blacker II, of course. But really Louis is on one of those Michael Jordan mid-90s types of on fire, where almost everythng he touches combusts. His show Louie is one of the best on TV, his standups are selling out everywhere, and dammit if the dude isn’t the funniest, most incisive realist this side of Mark Twain. Now he’s self-produced his latest stand-up special, Louis CK: Live at the Beacon Theater, and instead of just selling it to a major network Mr. C.K. is selling it directly to you. Uncensored. With no DRM. In HD. And, oh yeah, for $5. Just go to Louis CK’s site, send him 5 bucks via Paypal, and spend the next 90 minutes laughing your ass off. It’ll be the best $5 you spent in 2011.

The “trailer” below is actually stuff left on the cutting room floor. It wasn’t even good enough to make it into the actual show. Pretty promising…
