Comedian Louis CK announces Toronto Show

Louis CK keeps ticket costs down and takes aim at scalpers.

Rest easy Toronto stand-up comedy fans, Louis CK is coming.

The comedian announced a Toronto show for January 26 at the Air Canada Centre on his website. A Vancouver date was initially the only Canadian date on his North American tour.

Louis CK likes to keep the average ticket price for his shows to about $50.

If you’re planning on attending, you might want to avoid the secondary ticket market. The comedian goes to great lengths to deter resale markets from cashing in on the demand for his performances.

Regarding ticket resale: we take great efforts and have many methods of finding out what inventory is being sold on “broker” sites like Stubhub and Vivid Seats and immediately invalidating those tickets. Due to this we recommend that anyone who chooses to purchase these seats does so at their own risk. If the ticket becomes invalidated, we are not responsible, and unfortunately the consumer could lose money and not get into the show. We cannot tell anyone specifically which seats will be invalidated but we can tell you that there is a legitimate chance that any and all of them can be.
