For $5, who wouldn’t want to see Louis C.K. joke about garbage, parenthood, and penises? Total no-brainer. Live at the Beacon Theater is a self-financed and produced show released DRM-free straight to the audience, much like Radiohead’s album. His hour-long show has made over $500,000, with over $200,000 in actual profits, once you break down the $170,000 production and $32,000 website construction costs. Louis is living proof that a dedicated fan base can take you far, and making your own rules can take you even farther. Buy it here.
