Louis C.K. doesn't forget his friends. The comedy superstar is in Minneapolis tonight to play a sold-out Target Center. If you didn't get tickets, there's hope. Acme Comedy Company just announced that the comedian will play a surprise show at the Minneapolis club at 10 p.m., and tickets are only $25.
Acme's owner said C.K.'s agent reached out to him.
"He heard about what’s going on at Acme with the construction, so he wanted to check it out and help Acme out a little bit," Acme owner Louis Lee said.
C.K. played the club numerous times while he was rising up the comedy ranks (the club seats about 275 people). And Acme later worked as promoter for C.K.'s local theater shows.
Lee recently said he might have to move the club from it's North Loop location because of a loss of parking due to a new apartment development across the street. Lee is hoping that he and the developer (and the city) will be able to find a long-term remedy in the near future. Currently, one of the two lots were many Acme customers park is closed.
