    here’s the letter he sent people

    Dear getter of this.

    Hi. It’s Louis CK writing you. Do you remember me? I’m a professional standup comedian. Today I am writing you because I’m going to do some shows in January to wrap up this year’s touring schedule before I begin production on season five of my series.

    Here’s where I’ll be playing…. (I put those three dots in to give you a minute to collect yourself before you read this list of 3 cities)

    Chicago Theater (January 5th and 6th) New York MSG (January 7th) LA (January 11th)

    https://louisck.net/tour-dates

    Tickets are as always 45 dollars all in. Except at MSG we have some tickets for 25 and a few for 65.

    New York State has laws which prohibit us from forcing out of town ticket buyers to pick up their tickets in person which is something we do in order to reduce scalping and price gouging. Therefore If you are trying to buy tickets to the MSG shows and you are outside of a 200 mile radius, you won’t be able to. This is because we think you might be buying the tickets just to resell them. If you are a fan from out of town who is getting lost in the cracks of this system please email tickets@louisck.net and we will try to help you get tickets.

    I hope you make it to one of the shows. Happy new year. Happy holidays. Happy life. Happy family. Happy pets. Happy elephants.

    Louis ck.”

    Despite playing MSG, Louis CK is  staying true to his promise of making tickets to his shows fair and scalper free.

    tonight is the governors award 

    steve martin comedy is not pretty album and gatefoldgoing on five years now the Academy has recognized a small group of important people who are doing the right thing

    and have been super excellent over their careers.

    tonight angelina jolie, piero tosi, angela lansbury and steve martin will be honored.

    i will be live blogging it on oscars.org so tune in, wont you? it starts at 7pmish.

    one thing i wont be doing is gushing, because, you know, thats not profesh.

    but since we’re all friends here, let me tell you how happy i am that steve martin is being recognized

    when i was in high school Comedy is Not Pretty was one of the first records i ever bought

    mine was probably the last generation who actually bought comedy records and brought them over to their friends house, or took them to parties.

    i loved it so much i had the poster that came with the record and hung it on my wall.

    how many white guys in pink suits and gray hair were on posters on the wall of black kids?

    probs only steve martin.

    he’s had an amazing career, if you havent yet read his memoir, born standing up, it’s pretty fascinating, and of course funny.

    this is why i had to get a tux the other day.

    many famous people will be there.

    dont worry, i’ll take pics.
