At the end of the most recent season of his superb FX series, Louis C.K. made an unusual pass at long-form storytelling. “Late Show” finds Louie at its most overtly dramatic and—for a show that regularly exults in narrative ellipsis and melancholia—its most accessible as well. It tells the story, over three episodes, of our hero’s unlikely journey to succeed an apparently retiring David Letterman. As an increasingly confident director, C.K. has continued to explore more adventurous possibilities. Louie is essentially a hybrid of the comedian’s impulses as a stand-up and as a straight-ahead sketch writer. The man on stage, with all his fear and responsibility and desire and dread, is dropped into a world conceived to afflict these very qualities, a world that must be endured. The jokes come later, when we can make sense of it all. Whatever truth is to be discovered »

Gather 'round fans, step right up and experience an old timey black & white film from 1998 for only 5 bucks! After premiering at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival over 15 years ago, one of comedian/filmmaker Louis C.K.'s first films has finally been released. The film is titled Tomorrow Night and is an odd B&W comedy featuring one hell of a classic cast: Steve Carell, Robert Smigel, J.B. Smoove, Chuck Sklar, Martha Greenhouse, Heather Morgan, Rick Shapiro. The full 87-minute film is now available to buy for only $5 on LouisCK.net. It's worth it to see a rare but hilarious indie comedy, plus these comedians a while ago. Louis has been making the rounds in press and movies (he's in American Hustle and Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine) recently, promoting his show and this film release, and can be heard ranting about Gravity and All is Lost over here; plus he's now »

Louie star/creator Louis C.K., who most recently co-starred in American Hustle, was on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night, where he revealed that his lost directorial debut, a 1998 black-and-white comedy entitled Tomorrow Night, will finally be distributed on his official website.
The film, which features early performances from comedians such as Steve Carell, Conan O'Brien, Wanda Sykes, J.B. Smoove and Amy Poehler in her first movie role, debuted at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival, although it was never picked up for distribution.
Starting next month, fans can purchase the film for just $5, only on the comedian's website. We have Louis C.K.'s interview segment from last night, which includes a clip from the comedy, with Louis C.K. explaining how he was able to finish the movie with the help of several celebrity friends.
