Comedian Louis C. K. who grew up in Newton started his open mic nights in Boston during the 1980’s.
So for all the lucky Louis C. K. fans he will be having a surprise show in Boston tonight at the Paradise Rock Club. Which is not much of a surprise anymore, because Louis C. K. announced the 8 p.m. show in an email saying that the tickets cost $20 and feature no Ticketmaster fees and that they will only be available via the Paradise box office.
The email read:
Tonight at 8PM (doors open at 7), I am doing a show at “The Paradise” in Boston at 967 Commonwealth Avenue. Tickets will be $20- no fees and will only be available via walk up at the Paradise box office located at the club (967 Comm Ave). They will be available from now until showtime.
To check on availability throughout the day please call 617-562-8800.
In 2014 C. K. announced three surprise shows at the Somerville Theatre via email which fans quickly bought out online. Hopefully tonights show will be a good turn out as past surprise shows in 2014.
Around 10:00 am today lines started to form very quickly even through the muggy weather.
Two updated emails about the show were sent out later today about the correct phone numbers and the sell out of the show.
The email is listed below:
UPDATE (11:50 a.m.): The phone number listed for the Paradise Rock Club in C.K.’s email is incorrect. The correct number is 617-562-8800.
UPDATE (1:00 p.m.): The show is now sold out.
