C.K. is arguably the hottest comedian of the last couple years, between his critically acclaimed breakout hit “Louie” on FX and his experiments with digitally self-releasing and selling his latest live specials and albums exclusively via his website for $5.
Accordingly, all shows for C.K.’s upcoming tour will go for a flat fee of $45 and will be available on his website, effectively circumventing all major ticket companies.
From his website:
“Hi. I’m going on tour all over America, or at least some of it. Tickets for this tour are available EXCLUSIVELY here on louisck.com. Tickets are 45 dollars, every seat, every City. That includes all taxes and fees. You don’t have to join anything and you don’t have to hear from me again unless you want to. Just cheap tickets to see me do an all new bunch of jokes. See you on the road, bitches.”
