Louis C.K. Starts an “Ask Me Anything” on Reddit — 6000 Comments in First Hour

Louis C.K., that polymath comedian who’s now created an Emmy nominated comedy television show, has jumped onto Reddit to let his fans ask him anything.  He’s doing it because he’s launched a super-cheap $5 DVD of his latest comic performance, and is selling it through Paypal with no middleman.  The comedian is bold in many of his choices, and it’s great to see him connecting with his audiences directly, like Conan did when he was off the Tonight Show for a while.

Check out the post here and you’ll get some great insights into what it’s like to be a top comedian in today’s world.

Here’s his introduction to the post:

Hello. I have zero idea what is about to happen. I’ll answer as many questions as I can. I’m sure I don’t have to mention that if you go to http://www.louisck.com you can buy my latest standup special “Louis C.K. Live at the Beacon Theater for 5 dollars via paypal. You don’t have to join paypal. The movie is DRM free and is available worldwide. It’s all new material that has not been in a special or on my show and will never be performed again and it’s not available anywhere else. I’m sure I don’t need to mention any of that so I won’t bother. Oops. Hi.
