Humble Bundle Gets Into Comedy with Downloads from Louis C.K., Patrice O’Neal and More
Humble Bundle, the online company that “bundles” collections of video games, eBooks, and music for a pay-what-you-want download, has launched its first comedy bundle this afternoon with downloads from Louis C.K., Maria Bamford, Jim Norton, Tig Notaro, Hannibal Buress, and the late Patrice O’Neal. The curated selection of albums and specials went on sale at 2pm ET today, and will be available for two weeks. Buyers choose how much they pay for the collection, and how that money will be split between the artists, Humble Bundle, and certain charities. Buyers who pay more than the average price at the time of their visit will “unlock” C.K.’s Live at the Beacon Theater and O’Neal’s albums. Mr. P and Unreleased, as well as “a short video of unreleased animation” of O’Neal. More titles will be added during the next two weeks (and retroactively included in the bundle for anyone who’s already purchased it). It can also be bought as a gift, and given that it includes some of the best comedy specials of the past few years, would serve as a great “starter pack” for newer comedy fans.
