Louis C.K. is going on tour "all over the goddamn place" this fall, and you'll be able to get your ticket directly from the man himself. Building off the unparalleled success of his $5 stand-up special Live at the Beacon Theater, C.K. has decided against "using the usual very excellent but expensive ticketing service" and is instead offering tickets at a flat-rate of $45, taxes and fees included. And the comedian reserves the right to cancel the ticket if you try to scalp it. Then he'll spit on your back and give you the finger.

The comedian won the Webby Awards' "person of the year" honor for his special, which made over a million dollars in 12 days. Though this method of ticketing won't make him as much money as touring usually does, C.K. explains, "The benifit [sic] for me is that I won't get angry emails from anyone who paid a ton of money to see me due to circumstances out of my control.  That makes me VERY happy."

From the statement on his website:

Doing things this way means I'm making less than I would have made if I did a standard tour, using the usual very excellent but expensive ticketing service.  In some cities I've had to play smaller venues and do more shows.  But I like doing more shows and about a year ago I reached a place where I realized I am making enough money doing comedy so the next thing that interested me is bringing your price down.  Either way, I still make a whole lot more than my grandfather who taught math and raised chickens in Michigan.

Plus, unlike Live Nation, if you opt-in on his email list you'll only have to hear from him "once in an old man's jizz-cycle." He'll be in New York for five night from October 24 through the 28th at the excitingly-named New York City Center. And he's not coming to Cincinnati, but he plays two nights in D.C. Whaddya say, Don?

Also, season 3 of Louie premieres on Thursday night at 10:30 on F/X.

[UPDATE] The New York City Center has commented below on the ticket situation, saying that the 7 p.m. shows are sold out, but the 10 p.m. tickets will go on sale soon. Keep checking their Facebook page for details.
