Our boo Aziz Ansari, Parks and Rec star and comedian extraordinaire, announced via Twitter today that he was pulling a Louis C.K. and offering his new standup special, “Dangerously Delicious,” online only. Fans just have to enter their email address and pay $5, and they can stream or download the special directly from Mr. Ansari’s website.
Louis C.K. made the Internet very happy this week. Need proof? Check out the swath the comedian cut through Reddit’s Ask Me Anything or AMA forum, where, in between some radically transparent answers (He turns down female fans who try to pleasure him between shows! He’s not an atheist! ) even a brusque “Shut up” or “Fuck you” elicited swoons from Redditors. “IAmA Person who Louis C.K. said shut up to,” wrote newjunkieGR.
Similar praise and awe was given to Mr. C.K.’s web experiment: pay $5 to access his latest special, “Live at the Beacon Theater”, DRM-free.
