American comedian Louis CK is accepting bitcoin payments for audio recordings of his shows.

The five-time Emmy award winner, whose real name is Louis Székely, is accepting payments in the digital currency through bitcoin payment processor BitPay.

Although all of Székely's audio recordings can be purchased with bitcoin – costing the equivalent of $5 – the comedian said on his website that payment for his Live at Madison Square Garden performance would be available from $1 to $85, giving consumers the option to set their own price within these parameters.

Fans wanting to download the shows can also pay via PayPal, Amazon or Dwolla.
