Louis C.K. Sets Spring Standup Comedy Tour

Louis C.K. is embarking on a spring standup tour, the comic announced to fans Tuesday via his email newsletter.

The tour is set to begin in Baltimore on May 17, with performances in Asbury Park, N.J., Mashantucket, Conn., Chicago, and Pennsylvania stops in Wilkes-Barre and Reading to follow.

“I’ve been working on this particular standup material for a long time and I’m excited to bring it to you on all these various stages,” C.K. wrote. He’s frequently used his standup performances to work out material for other projects.

Summer and fall tour dates for additional cities in the U.S. and Europe will be announced next week, C.K. wrote.

C.K. made headlines this year with his self-financed and self-distributed drama series “Horace and Pete,” which wrapped its 10-episode first season last month. The comic has indicated that he may be finished with his FX comedy series “Louie” after five seasons but he is busier than ever as a producer.

C.K.’s Pig Newton banner is producing a series with “Louie” alum Pamela Adlon, “Better Things,” for FX and another series, “One Mississippi,” starring Tig Notaro, for Amazon. FX also renewed Pig Newton’s offbeat Zach Galifianakis comedy “Baskets” for a second season.
