Louis C.K., Bjork among Webby Awards winners

Louis C.K. appears onstage April 28 at The 2012 Comedy Awards in New York. When the comedian released his comedy special “Live at the Beacon Theater” by himself on his website for $5, it was little more than a cautiously optimistic experiment. Less than two weeks later, it had reaped more than $1 million. Already among the most respected stand-ups in the country, Louis C.K. was suddenly a new media trailblazer, too. On Tuesday, the Webby Awards announced Louis C.K. is their “person of the year” for setting “a new precedent for distribution.” Comedians Aziz Ansari and Jim Gaffigan have since similarly released albums online.
Bjork won a 2012 Webby Award for Artist of the Year.
