Louis C.K. Inks Deal With Netflix for Two Stand-Up Specials
Louis C.K.’s next two comedy specials will debut exclusively on Netflix, Variety has learned. 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.
