Louis C.K. talks 'Tomorrow Night' back in 1997

Louis Ck 09

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.
