As much as I am a die-hard Mulaney fan, and echo everything Chuck! said, Paul F. Tompkins' Laboring Under Delusions is one of the best stand-up specials of all time and it's easily the best on this list.

Awesome. Are these videos or just audio?

I think it's a smart move for the big guys, but how will it work for the up and comers? I guess that's why they set the price at $5?

That list is unbelievable. I wonder how much the comic will actually make on this though. Was huge for Louis, as it all went to him and he's already crazy popular. But I'm sure the money from these will be split up a good deal
