A comedy special that was originally presented only online will make its way to cable television. FX announced that it will televise Louis C.K.’s "Live at the Beacon Theater," the New York Observer reports.
FX also televises Louis C.K.’s sitcom, “Louie.”
“What am I going to do, put it on Showtime?” said C.K., who first ran the performance on his website. “I feel loyalty to FX. And they’re going to air it as a commercial, sort of, for the site [where fans can buy the special]. FX will give me the leeway — you can say ‘shit’ and ‘asshole,’ and you can’t say that on Comedy Central. You just can’t say ‘fuck,’ and there aren’t that many ‘fucks’ in this.”
FX has not yet announced when the special will air.
