As for the original question, Aziz Ansari, who stars in 'Park And Rec', has just released his latest stand up special in the same way as Louis.
I just listened to that, it's funny. Joe Rogan's selling his next special the same as Louis did too.
Definitely changed things, this'll be the norm soon, in a good way too, ours should do the same. I was in HMV last weekend, got Louis CK 'chewed up' DVD for £3, George Carlin 'it's bad for ya' for £4, Dave Chappele 'Killing them softly' for £6 and a double Jim Jeffries pack for £6, 2-disc Hicks documentary for £7. Meanwhile, Milican, Howard, Manford and Gilbert's DVDs (new and old specials) were still about £14.99-17.99.. I said to the guy at the till, you're a disgrace selling these so cheaply and them so dear, he said, head office sets the prices based on what sells. The Rolling Stones doc was £4, the Take That Reuinion tour was £16.99 blu-ray. Things should be priced according to quality, not demmand.
Anyway, where were we? Yeah, Louis CK has started a trend.
