Louis CK To Release 1998 Film 'Tomorrow Night" ft. Steve Carell, Amy Poehler

January 09, 2014

Louis C.K. will make his 1998 directorial debut, Tomorrow Night, available for the first time on his website next month. The movie boasts a crop of current comedy superstars – including Steve Carell, Amy Poehler, Conan O'Brien, Wanda Sykes and JB Smoove – before they became household names.

As Hollywood reports, the film initially debuted at the Sundance Film Festival 15 years ago, but failed to pick up a distributor. Now C.K. will make Tomorrow Night available to download on his website for just $5, á la his 2011 standup special Live at the Beacon.

Below, you can check out a trailer for Tomorrow Night, which provides less a sense of the film's plot than a fragmented showcase of C.K.'s early comedy stylings. Fans of the comedian's hit show Louie will notice plenty of similarities, from the simple, French New Wave-esque camerawork to the outlandish humor that lands somewhere between surreal, awkward and grotesque. Case in point: the clip is anchored by the film's ostensible star, Chuck Sklar (who worked with C.K. on The Chris Rock Show in the late 1990s), sitting pantsless on a bowl of ice cream. Watch closely and you'll also catch Carell and Saturday Night Live vet Robert Smigel cackling like maniacs in a mailroom.

C.K. spoke about the film during a recent Tonight Show appearance, revealing that he was able to finish it thanks to help from a few famous friends. "I had about 20,000 bucks so I just started making it, and then I ran out of money," C.K. said. "I had some showbiz friends, so Jon Stewart lent me $10,000 dollars – I owe all these people money now if the movie makes money! Dennis Leary lent me money, Brett Butler, Spike Feresten, Chris Rock, all these people gave me like 10,000 bucks each."

Louie is set to return after an extended hiatus sometime this year, and C.K.'s latest comedy special, Oh My God, will premiere on HBO on April 13th. (via)
