When Louis C.K. announced that his first feature film, Tomorrow Night (from 1998), would be available from his website for $5, it didn’t take long for an email to land in my inbox: “this must be the film he was talking about on oddville!” Back in 1997, I was part of the group that produced a summer show on MTV that one night welcomed the comedian to talk about the movie he was then making, long before his FX fame — the same one fans finally get to see 15 1/2 years later. Here’s a time capsule glimpse of the then-rising comic talking about his labor of love (he arrives about a minute into the clip); a pretty effective pitch, no? Nice to think it finally can be put to good use.
