Jim Gaffigan recently announced he will be shooting a comedy special in Washington D.C. which will be available for $5 download. $1 from each download will go to The Bob Woodruff Foundation which helps wounded veterans and their families. Here's what Gaffigan had to say about the special. (via techcrunch.com).
I know I am taking a risk here. People I respect have advised me to take the safer, more traditional route with the premiere of the special. However, I am incredibly motivated by the courage of Louie to offer his fans direct access for a low price. Buyers of my special can be assured that their money will go directly to feeding and raising my four children instead of a giant corporation. I will self-produce a high quality special with all new material that will be incredibly easy to download and then you will own it. Forever. For $5. Roughly the price of five packs of Ramen Noodles. And believe me my special is going to be much better than five packs of disgusting Ramen Noodles. Gross.
