HBO Books Louis C.K. for New Stand-Up Special

Though fans of Louis C.K. will have to wait a sinful amount of time for the return of FX’s Louie – season 4 doesn’t premiere until 2014 – the comedy gods have offered a small reprieve.

HBO has announced its plan to air a one hour stand-up special of the Emmy winner’s ingenious humor. The special will be taped on the road at one of the 16 locations on Louis CK’s comedy tour and is set to air sometime in 2013. Did we mention the tour is already sold out?

“I’m delighted to welcome the gifted Louis CK back to HBO,” announced Michael Lombardo, HBO’s programming president according to “This comic genius remains one of the freshest voices on the scene, and HBO is proud to provide an uncensored forum for his provocative humor.”
