Louis cuts out the middle man and delivers a great show at low cost.
Another great show from Louis, this one is just as highly recommended as his other shows. It's not his very best material but it has moments of greatness (especially his discussion about how he strives to be a better person at times, doesn't do anything about it and then feels good for having the good thought anyway).
The other big recommendation is the way in which the show was distributed. Louis made the show available to everyone and anyone for $5 from his website (and pop along to LouisCK.net and browse around, please) and, in doing so, tried to cut out the middle man in terms of distribution, tried to cut down on potential piracy and tried to just generally make the situation better between consumer and product.
Pretty much everything that Louis C.K. does is worth checking out but this is a great chance to directly reward the man for trying something that's both a bit different and also beneficial to those shelling out for his shows.
Great stuff, especially for anyone who has ever found themselves getting irrationally angry at children.
