Update: According to Rolling Stone, CK's special has earned him more than $1 million - more than a quarter of which he's given away to charity.
Comedian Louis CK's Live at the Beacon Theater is the funniest $5 you'll spend all year. In the web-only special (you can both stream and download the video), CK riffs on Chinese people, white people, environmentalists, necrophilia and Clifford the Big Red dog in his unique, self-effacing way.
If you wonder how anyone could laugh at some of the horrendous subject matter CK touches, Rolling Stone sums him up nicely: "He's a guy who desperately wants to do the right thing, even if he regularly messes up in the process."
Check out an outtake from Live at the Beacon Theater below, where Louis CK ponders evolution and giraffes having sex.
