Louis CK is coming to MN this summer on his stand-up tour


Louis CK will come to Minnesota as part of his 2016 stand-up tour.

The acclaimed comedian announced Monday he'll stop at the Target Center on Aug. 2, toward the tail end of a U.S. tour that kicks off in Baltimore this week.

Tickets for the gig are already on sale – click here to purchase them. Prices go from a low end of $25 for upper level seats on the opposite end of the arena from the stage; up to $65 for floor and lower level seating. He'll be in Milwaukee the day before.

CK hasn't done a show in Minneapolis since October of 2012, according to his website.

What else is he up to? Well you can get his surprise streaming TV show "Horace and Pete" for $31 now. He dropped episode one with no prior announcement on a Saturday, and released one each week for the next couple months.

His hit FX show "Louie" is on hiatus, with no specific return date (if it even does come back).

If you want more from the 48-year-old – including about "Horace and Pete," his plans going forward, reports he went bankrupt over the streaming series, and his thoughts on a whole lot more – check out this recent interview with Bill Simmons.
