Louis C.K. and His Dedication to Experimental Film

Last year when Louis C.K. released his 1998 feature film debut Tomorrow Night, it seemed like a move that didn’t quite add up. Here’s this guy, A-list comedian, has his own cable TV show — suddenly he’s putting out this black and white art film. Why? His show now isn’t necessarily laugh-out-loud funny, but it’s certainly a different kind of thing than Tomorrow Night. That’s like Lars von Trier showing us all a HBO half hour from 20 years ago.

It ruins the mystique." Tomorrow Night didn't really "ruin the mystique" of Louis C.K. as a filmmaker for me, but it does definitely feel like practice.

An 87-minute surreal black-and-white comedy Louis C.K. wrote, directed, and produced independently in between seasons of The Chris Rock Show in 1997, Tomorrow Night played at a Sundance and a few other film [...]

Following up his appearance on Monday night's Letterman, Louis C.K. sat down with Jon Stewart last night and showed a new clip from his 1998 film Tomorrow Night, which will be available for $5 via C.K.'s website today at noon. The two also talked about writing together for the 1989 series Caroline's Comedy Hour and the time Stewart lent C.K. $5,000 to make Tomorrow Night, which hopefully he now sees as a decent investment.
