Colorado Springs, Colo. (February 7. 2013) - Emmy Award and Grammy Award-winning comedian Louis CK - creator, executive producer, director, editor and star of FX Network's critically-acclaimed series Louie - will perform a special center stage in-the-round concert at the World Arena in Colorado Springs on Wednesday, March 6 at 8:00 p.m. (Doors will open at 7:00 p.m.) Tickets are $45.00 (inclusive of all fees) and are on sale now only at Louis C.K.'s website www.louisck.net  .

In a statement on louisck.net from Louis, "This year, I'm trying something new, building on the fun, success and fan-benefit of selling my content online...I've cut the ticket charges way down and absorbed them into the ticket price. To buy a ticket, you join NOTHING. Just use your credit card and buy the damn thing."

Back in December 2011, Louis released his last standup special, Louis C.K. Live at the Beacon Theatre, directly to consumers through his website for $5. The move was hailed as groundbreaking and was a tremendous success. He has since added additional content to the site including audio downloads of WORD-LIVE AT CARNEGIE HALL and SHAMELESS.


Louis was nominated for four 2011 Emmy Awards for Louie and his standup special Hilarious, including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series, Outstanding Picture Editing for a Special and Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Special. He recently won four awards at the 2012 Comedy Awards including Sketch Alternative Comedy Series and Comedy Directing TV for Louie, as well as Comedy Special of the Year and "Stand Up Tour" for Live at the Beacon Theatre. Louie was honored on many year-end top 10 lists including AFI, Time, Entertainment Weekly and dozens of others. Hilarious was also honored with a 2012 Grammy for Best Comedy Album.
