You've seen him on FX's Louie, stand-up films like Hilarious and in TV shows and movies. Louis C.K. seems inescapable -
and there's good reason for that. His stand-up is based on his perspective as a comic, father, cultural critic and more. Comedy tickets to his show will let you hear bits
that are sometimes profane, at other times poignant, and always hysterical.
Louie's given surname is Szekely, but the easiest way to pronounce that in English is "C.K." He has a pretty unique background,
having been born to a software engineer mother and a Hungarian economist father in Mexico. He grew up in Mexico City before
moving to Boston. As a teen, he started to discover comedy greats like George Carlin and Richard Pryor, and soon started going
to open-mic nights to start his own career. Grab theater
tickets to see him live.
Louis C.K. got his comedy career started as a writer for a slew of talk shows: David Letterman, Conan O'Brien, Dana Carvey
and Chris Rock all hired him as a writer on their respective late night shows. All the while, he continued to hone his own
stand-up work. His own shows, like HBO's Lucky Louie and FX's Louie have both earned him love from critics and fans, but don't
forget to see him on tour doing stand-up.
Comedy nerds all know who Louis C.K. is. They've seen specials like Chewed Up and Hilarious - but it's even better seeing
