I have a profit around $200,000 (after taxes $75.58). This is less than I would have been paid by a large company to simply perform the show and let them sell it to you, but they would have charged you about $20 for the video. They would have given you an encrypted and regionally restricted video of limited value, and they would have owned your private information for their own use.

I'm sure his visit to reddit the other day helped him get more sales. He answered a lot of people's questions and was hilarious.

Really cool thing he's doing. I bought it, I really like him as a comedian and person and this is an awesome experiment he's trying.

He talked about it on the BS Report today.
