Tim Heidecker: A Lot of Money Was Spent by Big Companies to Get Louis C.K. Where He Is

“It gets me a little angry when people say, ‘Oh, Louis C.K. It’s a new model where you pay him five dollars and he’s doing it all himself.’ A lot of money was spent by big companies to get him to a place where he can do that. Time Warner and Adult Swim paid a lot of money for Eric and I to make stuff, and then they spent a lot of money promoting. People aren’t coming out of nowhere and getting careers just by putting their stuff online.”

-Tim Heidecker of Tim & Eric fame, talking to The LA Times about Louis C.K. and how people often misinterpret the “new model.”
