Bypassing conventional distribution routes, Louis has made his latest special available as a $5 download, making it extremely easy for people to pass it around for free but trusting his fans not to do that. I paid the $5, although I would prefer a DVD because I like having shiny things on a shelf I can admire instead of plain ol' DVD-R's labelled with a Sharpie and crammed into a binder. As for the show itself, it's tricky for me to review stand-up comedy. I don't want to just repeat the gags, and a laundry list of the topics he covers won't tell you anything. I laughed a lot... if you like Louis, you'll enjoy it. I would say it's less funny in the middle than at the start and the end, but all of it works. Probably the weakest part is the environment chunk, but even that has some good bits.
