Would you pay five bucks to see the stuff in the back of Louis C.K.’s closet? If so, head to the comedian’s website (louisck.net) and download Tomorrow Night, an amateurish, unfunny black-and-white film he wrote and directed in 1998, back when he was a struggling stand-up and TV writer. I suspect that C.K. isn’t delusional enough to think that his mothballed flick is any good. But he is asking you to pay him for it, so caveat emptor. A shapeless, laughless series of sight gags and lame vignettes, the movie has diarrhea jokes, a randy granny, and a weirdo who sits in a big bowl of ice cream while pleasuring himself. Laughing yet? The only reason for checking out the film is to see C.K. pals Steve Carell, JB Smoove, Wanda Sykes, and a blink-and-you’ll-miss-her Amy Poehler before they were famous. Oh, and for those five bucks, you can stream the film up to three times, which is less a value incentive than a threat. D
EVERYTHING'S POOR AND NOBODY'S HAPPY Louis C.K.'s Tomorrow Night, made in 1998, is a poor representation of how popular and entertaining the comedian actually is. (Kevin Mazur)
