How can one video clip encompasses the evils of driving while texting, humankind’s collective soul-crushing loneliness and our attempts to assuage it through technology and also trying to parent mini-consumers in such a landscape? By the very fact that it’s Louis C.K. talking, of course. Also Bruce Springsteen is involved. [More]
What’s that sound you hear? That high, lonesome keening? It could be Ticketmaster, weeping at the loss of profit it could’ve made if Louis C.K. had let it (or another ticketing company) handle the sales of tickets for his upcoming tour. But instead, the comedian says in around 45 hours, he’s sold $4.5 million worth of $45 tickets himself. Those must be his lucky numbers, 4 and 5, eh?
Louis C.K., the potty-mouthed comic with a beloved FX show and a devoted gang of fans, might love to sling insults and poke fun at his audience during stand-up routines, but that doesn’t mean he wants them to have to pay out the ear for tickets to his shows. He announced via an email blast that tickets to his upcoming tour will be sold exclusively on his own web site.
