Louis C.K. Live at the Straz Center
Emmy Award and Grammy Award winning comedian Louis C.K. – creator, executive producer, director, editor, and star of FX Network’s critically acclaimed series Louie – will perform a special engagement, Louis C.K. Live at the Straz Center, Thursday, Nov. 29.
In a statement on louisck.com from Louis, “This year, I'm trying something new, building on the fun, success and fan-benefit of selling my content online … I've cut the ticket charges way down and absorbed them into the ticket price. To buy a ticket, you join NOTHING. Just use your credit card and buy the damn thing.”
Back in December, 2011 Louis released his last standup special, Louis C.K. Live At the Beacon Theatre, directly to consumers through his website for $5. The move was hailed as groundbreaking and was a tremendous success. He has since added additional content to the site including audio downloads of “WORD-LIVE AT CARNEGIE HALL” and “SHAMELESS”
Louis was nominated for four 2011 Emmy Awards for Louie, which will have its season premiere on Thursday, June 28, at 10:30 p.m., and his standup special “Hilarious” including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series, Outstanding Picture Editing for a Special and Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Special. He recently won four awards at the 2012 Comedy Awards including Sketch Alternative Comedy Series and Comedy Directing TV for Louie, as well as Comedy Special of the Year and “Stand Up Tour” for Live at the Beacon Theatre. Louie was honored on many year-end top 10 lists including AFI, Time, Entertainment Weekly and dozens of others. “Hilarious” was also honored with a 2012 Grammy for Best Comedy Album.
