UPDATE: Brilliant comedian Louis CK is NOT headed this way

Update 02.14.13:

Louis CK has canceled his shows in Boise and Colorado Springs to do a last-minute movie part he was offered. Tickets already purchased will be refunded automatically. His email:

Dear person who bought a ticket to my show in Boise or Colorado Springs. First of all, thank you so much for buying that ticket. Second of all, sorry. The show is cancelled. The thing is I got a part in a movie all of the sudden so I need to go do that on those days. I hope you are not too disappointed. I promise (sort of) to come to Boise and Colorado springs as soon as I can. In the meantime, I really am very very sorry that I got a part in a really cool movie and so I can’t come do those shows for you. If it’s any consolation, the movie pays about a tenth of what I would have made on the shows. So at least I’m losing tons of money.

Tickets will be refunded within 48 hours. Any questions, please go to http://www.etix.com/ticket/online/help2.jsp

Original post:

Comedian Louis CK, whose FX series, “Louie,” is one of the best things on television, will roll into Boise for a March 7 show at Taco Bell Arena.

Tickets are $45 — that’s total, no hidden service fees — and are available exclusively at www.louisck.net.

If you haven’t seen “Louie,” do yourself a favor: set the DVR. Watching “Louie” — a loosely autobiographical show about a single father raising two daughters — is hilarious yet horribly uncomfortable. It’s like having someone aggressively scratch a chalkboard with one hand while tickling you mercilessly with the other. Until you pass out.

Warning: profanity in this clip below from FX’s “Louie”:
