Louis CK Crashed Late Night Comedy at the Burren
The superstar comedian has a string of shows at the Wang Theatre this week—and apparently at Boston’s smaller venues.
After surprising a crowd at McGreevey’s on Valentine’s Day, Louis CK brought his comedy chops to the Burren. The Newton native rolled into the Davis Square pub and venue around midnight last night and performed a set of new jokes for about 60 people, according to a fan who was there.
The show took place during the weekly Late Night Comedy series in the Burren Back Room. Hosted by local comedians, the regular weekly laughfest has hosted national headliners like Gary Gulman (Tourgasm, Conan) and Dan Boulger (Comedy Central) before. Last night, New York City standup comic Joe List also performed, the club said.
Louis CK came by the Burren tonight and I got to share the stage with him. So unbelievable. I’m still a nobody and no where close where I wana be in life but if this isn’t inspirational then I dunno what is. I wana thank Jordan Handred Seavey for bringing me in to co host this legendary room. Dream big and never stop. Much love. I love you all. Your Polish friend- Arty. #comedy #louisck #BostonComedy #misseskitty
Louis CK has two more ticketed shows at the Wang Theatre this week, and as Vanyaland points out, ImprovBoston and Great Scott in Allston have comedy nights slated for tonight and Friday. Just sayin’.
