Louis C.K. Will Premiere TWO Stand Up Specials Exclusively On Netflix This Year
The first of the specials, titled “2017” and filmed in Washington, D.C., will premiere April 4 globally on Netflix.
C.K. is no stranger to the streaming world; he released his 2011 special “Live from the Beacon Theater” exclusively on his own website for $5, and several of his other specials have been available on Netflix for years — “2017” will merely be the first to debut as a Netflix original. His latest series, “Horace and Pete,” was distributed solely through louisck.net; after its first run on his site, Hulu picked up the syndicated streaming rights.
Any fans of Louis CK (this should be everyone) are going to be extra excited heading into this weekend, as Netflix announced that the comedian will premiere two specials on the streaming service this year, start with 2017 on April 4th. CK is a master of all trades nowadays, but my two favorite things about him are his stand up specials and his SNL monologues. While we haven’t seen him on SNL in almost two years, two new standup specials will definitely hold us over. CK will have a lot of material to work with considering the world we live in, and I can’t wait to see his brilliant/deranged opinions back in action.
