>According to him [Louis C. K.], if he can peddle his own comedy special—like the new Live At The Beacon Theater, currently for sale for $5 at his website—and “it makes, say, 8 million bucks,” then he would use that money to make a new movie in the same autonomous way he makes his FX show.
>Keep in mind, however, that it’s not sales of Beacon that would fund the film: He says that if Beacon “really tears an asshole into the money monster who then shits dollars into my mouth,” he would then use those shit-dollars to “buy a home and get some security which i NEVER have had in my life and have certainly not gotten from my low-budget show.” However, if he sells enough downloaded copies of this one to justify trying the experiment again, then the proceeds from his second special will all go toward making a movie. So in other words, go buy Louis C.K.’s new special right now, and then do it again when he releases another one. Don’t be the ass cork in the money monster.
