Louis C.K. is one of the sharpest and most talented American comedians. He has a straight, unfiltered delivery, and when he's onstage, you get everything from pointed observations on race to rants about his kids getting him up at ''six-fart-on-a-kitten's-twat-in-the-morning.'' Along with his performances, Louis has become a fan favorite for another reason: He comes cheap. His recordings are on sale on his Web site for the obscenely low price of $5 (he’s cut out distributors and retailers completely). On his current tour, he's using his own ticketing process to make sure that no fan has to pay more than $45 to see him tell jokes. That's 45 real dollars, by the way, not $45 plus tax and user fees. This is a chance not only to see one of the most important comedians today, but also to support an artist who's leading the charge against jacked-up ticket prices.
