Louis C.K. April 4

Comedian Louis C.K.’s new Netflix stand-up special will premiere on Tuesday, April 4.

Recorded in Washington, DC, the show, called 2017, will be the first of two Louis C.K. specials to debut exclusively on Netflix.

In the brief history of streaming video entertainment, Louis C.K. has been something of a pioneer. He released his 2011 standup special, Louis C.K. Live at the Beacon Theater, directly through his website louisck.net, for $5 and donated a large portion of the proceeds to charity, according to Netflix.

You can stream Louis C.K. Live at the Beacon Theater on Netflix, buy it at louisck.net, or watch it in its entirety here:

Louis C.K. Live from the Comedy Store was also released on his website in January 2015. You can stream Louis C.K. Live from the Comedy Store on Netflix, buy it at louisck.net, or watch it in its entirety here:

Louis C.K. also wrote, directed and starred in Horace and Pete, a drama series that debuted in January 2016 on louisck.net. Hulu then acquired streaming rights in December.

Pricing for Horace and Pete at louisck.net is as follows: $5 for the first episode; $2 for the second episode; and $3 per show for episodes three through 10. Another option is to purchase the entire season for $31.

You can also stream two other Louis C.K. specials – Louis C.K. Hilarious and Louis C.K. Chewed Up – on Netflix.
