In his ongoing effort to put out comedy specials more frequently than most people wash their duvet covers, Louis C.K. will soon tape an hour-long comedy special that will air on HBO some time in 2013.
HBO said on Monday that it would broadcast a new stand-up special by Louis C. K., the Emmy Award-winning comedian and star of the FX series “Louie,” to be taped during his current tour and shown next year. Louis C. K. said on his Twitter account that after this new special is shown on HBO, it would be sold a few months later as a $5 download at his Web site, louisck.net.
In other Louis C.K. news, he’s hosting two shows in Staten Island this Saturday at the St. George theater. Tickets are $65 and all of the proceeds are going to a charity to aid Hurricane Sandy victims. Tickets are available to Louis’ website. And for what it’s worth, I saw Louis C.K. a couple of weeks ago in NYC and found his current standup act to be even funnier than the previous two he’s done. And the last one was pretty damn funny.
