One of the challenges in both filmmaking and comedy is getting your work to the audience. The Internet has helped make great strides on that front, but just because someone can watch something online doesn't mean they will.

Amusingly, this has nothing to do with his ability to tell a joke, but more to do with the fact that he's continued to challenge the traditional distribution model. The man's circumvented the almighty TicketMaster in order to sell tickets directly to fans, and even sold a DRM-free comedy special directly to viewers in the past. He's at it again, too: Louis' going to offer an upcoming HBO special on his website, DRM-free, for $5 a few months after it airs.
