Louis CK

Louis CK was set to wrap up his run at the New York City Center tonight but has postponed until March 2. Here's a letter he wrote about it:

Dear New York ticket holding folks....

Okay. I thought about this very carefully and I really started to worry about making 4300 people come into midtown manhattan on Sunday night, which is just when the stormatron 5000 is supposed to crush our empire. Things i worry about include that Mass transit might shut down in all of New york, at 7pm tomorrow, stranding everyone who comes to the shows and that the second show ends at midnight, sending people back home just as it's starting to pick up.

I know that a lot of people are excited to come and they are fine with taking the chance but I really don't want a pole to smash your face in because you saw some comedy.
So i asked the City Center (where the shows are supposed to happen) if we could find another date for tomorrow's shows and they gave me March 2nd. The City Center, being really cool, has agreed to let us do the shows on that night and your tickets that you now hold will be honored on that night. the same seat, same everything. If you can't come on that night, we will either do another show soon after that, or find another show for you in the area in the future. Or you still have the option to get a full refund for your ticket. If you already asked for a refund, we can reinstate your ticket if you want to go to one of those shows.

Listen. I know that probably tomorrow it's going to be a starry clear night and the trains are going to be just gliding up and down the traks and a baby zebra is going to whinny as he trots by the City Center on a night that is going to break records for being placid and perfect for a night of comedy. And I'm going to feel like an asshole. And I know that some people had their plans set and are going to be pissed off at me. I know. but I also know that some of you are struggling with whether to come in or miss the show and this is the closest I can get to a solution. You don't have to take a chance and you don't have to miss the show. Just come see me in a few months.

If it's any consolation, I'm eating a pretty staggering fee for cancelling the show. But I can take it. What I can't take is the thought that there's a CHANCE 4300 people will be in danger trying to get home from my stupid show.

Please email molly@etix.com and tell us what you want to do, and ask any question you have.

So that's that. Cancelled. Rescheduled. Please forgive me. Please be safe.

Your dumb friend

Louis CK

Lots of other stuff is cancelled too.

If all of you were in a Louis C.K. ass kissing contest this would be a hard one to judge.

Listen, if you're going to be an asshole, at least know how to fucking write. "Self righteousness douche"? Oh yeah, nouns totally modify nouns. Ugh. And no question mark when asking a question? And then you top it off with "u."

Fuckin' A right, Louis. Well-played. So many options for those who won't be able to make the rescheduled date.

This is the kind of guy I want in my society.

If he would have said nothing you same losers criticizing him now would be criticizing him for that. I get it.. he's popular at fuck right now.. so there is no possible way he could be a good guy. He must be a prick. You must believe this to satisfy your little world view..

Where the fuck are you living if 5x face value for the ticket pays your rent? I'd feel sorry for you if you weren't such an irredeemable asshole.

5:08 is right, this dude loves to make himself feel like he's doing the rest of you schmucks a favor.

Yeah how many other acts canceled tonight w/o having to write a lame ass letter acting like they are god's gift to reason & wisdom? I'm get real tired of this dude.

10:54 How many other acts are rescheduling for March? You're all a bunch of pretentious cunts. Stop whining about nothing.

At least the fucker has the decency to be going bald. There's nothing more ugly and pathetic looking than a ginger.

9:00- Actually, in the show I saw this week, he repeatedly said how great being divorced was, so you need to update tour trolling.

Posted by Anonymous | October 29, 2012 1:29 AM

1:29 wow so dude is still babbling on about his divorce. thanks for the confirmation. maybe another comedian friend will get cancer so he can use it to up his profile.

Posted by Anonymous | October 29, 2012 1:55 AM

most of the shows goin on weren't as large, high profile or sold out and he was doin two shows a night. What a dick for trying to make people, who paid good money to come out to see him, feel better about a bummer situation . He's not writing that to make himself feel like a nice guy just to make the fans feel like they arent getting screwed

If you are referring to the Tig Notaro thing , not only are you an insensitive maggot but you aren't very smart either... yes Louie , needs to raise his profile... you are dead from the neck up pal..

Gosh, he wanted to explain his thinking behind canceling the last two of a week's worth of sold out shows at a huge venue. What other act had to cancel for 6000 people? Why the fuck are people so offended by a simple explanation? What disappointments have you suffered in your lives that would make you so upset at a popular comic explaining why he's canceling a show in the middle of a hurricane, and explaining the several options he's giving people who have tickets to these shows?
Is it just because he's popular now? Did you only like his older stuff?
