Louis C.K. Releases HBO Special ‘Oh My God’ For $5, Includes Extended Cut


The last two years have essentially been a whirlwind as far as Louis C.K.’s career is concerned. His hit show on FX catapulted his already celebrated comedy career to dizzying new heights, and by taking control of all future standup releases Louis made himself one of the most successful comics of all time. When he released his first digital-only special through his site he single-handedly changed the comedy landscape forever, and he’s continuing to use that method of reaching consumers today with the release of Oh My God.

Some fans may remember hearing about, or potentially even seeing Oh My God when it debuted on HBO in the spring of 2013. The special was a huge success, garnering critical acclaim and eventually winning an Emmy, but was never released direct to the public before today. Now, for only $5, fans can purchase Oh My God DRM-free through Louis’ official website. You can read a message from the man himself, below:

Well. Hello. This is Louis CK.

Before I start wasting your time let me just get to the point which is that my latest standup special louis ck oh my god is available on my website, along with a bonus extra long version, for the usual 5 dollars.


For more details and I have your time horribly wasted, read on…

Hi. So. it has been a while since I last wrote to you.

A lot has changed since my last email to you. Firstly, you’ll be glad to know, I lost seven pounds! I know! And all it took was absolutely no dedication or commitment to losing any weight. And it paid off.
Now that I knocked that out of the park, I’m setting my sites on more goals. Such as “none of my habits changing in any particular way”. I think if I really buckle down, I can make that happen.

All of this is part of my new approach to life. I call it “believing in myself”. Sounds weird, huh? Well it’s really very simple. I believe that I exist. And that I’m going to pretty much keep existing and being the pretty much same guy, with the same qualities and skills ive always ha or lacked, especially when averaged over time, no matter what happens.

For instance. I BELIEVE that I’ll alway be a little but late for most things. I BELIEVE that if my work habits were 4% worse, I’d be homeless right now. I BELIEVE that I am often sleepy. See? It works!


I’m writing to you today to let you know that “Louis CK Oh My God” which is my latest standup special, which aired on HBO in the spring and won an Emmy for best writing of a variety special. (I’m not trying to brag. I’m just trying to get you to buy the thing. By bragging.)


“Louis CK Oh My God” is available on my site for 5 dollars, for that, you are entitled to the following:

1. You can download the special, as it aired on HBO “drm free” all over the world as many as 3 times.
2. Or you can stream it 2 times.
3. You can download an audio version of the special.
4. You can download or stream a longer version of the special. This is basically a rough cut with more jokes in it.

All that for 5 dollars. I mean, it’s only a lot if you like my comedy. If you don’t like me or my jokes, then it’s just a 5 dollar nightmare.

The video of this special is only available on my site. So if you want To own your own version, this is the only way to have it. The extended version had only ever been seen here. So … That too.

As always I’d like to urge you not to steal or share this video so that I can continue to offer stuff on my site in this friendly and cheap way without losing my ass in the process. I don’t want to lose my ass. I have a great, great ass.

So that’s mostly it. Please go to louisck.net to buy oh my god and for more information. Oh, also, we now accept Paypal, amazon payments and Dwolla.

Okay. That’s it. Please enjoy your life. And please be always curious about other people.

Your friend,

Louis ck
