Louis CK, arguably the funniest and most well-regarded comedian in America right now, is returning to his Boston roots this weekend, performing three surprise sets in Somerville.
CK will be performing three shows at Somerville Theatre, two on Saturday at 7:30 PM and 10:00 PM, and one on Sunday at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $30, and if the huge text on the ticket page discouraging scalping is any indication, will be gone before you know it.
UPDATE: All three shows are now sold out. but a 4th show has been added on Sunday at 10:00PM. Tickets available here.
CK announced the secret shows in an email to people in the Somerville area who had previously bought something from CK’s website, writing:

In case you miss out, here’s a clip of a very young CK performing in Harvard Square way back in 1987.
