To the surprise of his fans and haters, Louis C.K. dropped a new comedy special this past Saturday on his official website. Brilliant marketing idea to get back into what’s he’s good at - Stand Up comedy.
Indirectly referencing the coronavirus outbreak, Louis CK said in his press announcement that laughter helps when “things get shitty” or when people are facing difficult times. “I feel like there are two kinds of people in this world,” he said. “One kind needs to laugh when things get shitty. In fact, the shittier things get, the more serious, the more dark the more terrifying, the more dangerous and dire anything is, the more important it is to laugh in the midst of it and often directly in its face.”
His stand-up special is titled “Sincerely C.K.” can be downloaded and stream for $7.99 on his website. The controversial comedian has essentially been out of the spotlight since 2017, when sexual misconduct allegations against him began to surface.
