At the last second: Louis C.K. at Fox Theatre Sept. 20

Like the late, great Prince, Louis C.K. has decided to schedule a concert in Atlanta at the last second.

The popular comic will be at the Fabulous Fox Theatre in just a week, Tuesday, September 20.

The tickets actually have been available online since the weekend, but the Fox Theatre only got around to announcing it today.

Tickets are priced at just $50 apiece so I expect a quick sell out because he is now that popular.

Go to www.foxtheatre.org for tickets.

The New York Times recently reviewed his show in New York City and raved, saying it was his best live show since 2010. Louis C.K. is constantly adding new material to his act, typically turning over his show every 18 to 24 months.

Dispensing with his usual jeans and a T-shirt, he wore a skinny tie and a black suit, a costume that made him look less like a slovenly everyman than the showbiz star that he is. But don’t let the new image fool you. He’s returning to his trustiest subject matter: grousing dad humor, bleak jokes about romance and loneliness, gay fantasy (his bit about lusting after Ewan McGregor has a superior sequel with the stars of “Magic Mike”), vignettes empathetically imagining the perspectives of the least likely people, and racial humor dancing up to the line of bad taste before a confident pirouette.
