If you’re still recovering from news about the series Louie taking an “extended hiatus” so that star Louis C.K. can focus his attention on other work, like that Zach Galifianakis comedy Baskets happening in 2016, take heed. Luckily the comedian has thrown us a bone. C.K. just announced the release of his newest live album, Louis C.K. Live at Madison Square Garden — the final MSG show he performed at the start of 2015. And he wrote a letter to fans, wishing everyone a happy summer in a way that only C.K. can. You can purchase Louis C.K. Live at Madison Square Garden and pay what you like over here.
Dear Human Person, Hi. This is Louis CK. This is just a note to let you know that I have put a new show up on louisck.net. It’s called “Louis CK live at Madison Square Garden”. The show is exactly what is described there. It’s the audio from my last of 3 shows that I performed at Madison Square Garden early this year. Some of the material is in the Comedy Store Special. Some of it isn’t. But it’s also a fun show on it’s own [sic]. BUT since it’s repeated material, I’m giving you the option to set your price anywhere from 1 dollar to 85. The default is 5. I hope you like it. There isn’t much else to say. I’m having a pretty nice summer and I hope you are too. I feel pretty good about the planet, the country and my immediate surroundings, even though a lot of things are a huge mess all over the world. It may be selfish, or naive or even calloused to feel pretty good ever about anything when anyone anywhere is having a bad time and there sure are a lot of anyones everywhere having a bad time. But then again if you’re upset all the time because something bad is happening every second, then jesus. I mean… for christ’s sake, take it easy. I hope all of you are having a good summer. I hope you’re all relatively okay or better. I hope that nobody shoots anybody today. What are the odds of that? low. But I hope it. Take care, Louis
