Louis C.K., whose dark humor has propelled him to popularity, will be playing two shows at the Trump Taj on Saturday, Sept. 1, 2012. Show times are at 7 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. Ticket prices are $55 and $45. Tickets can be obtained by either calling Ticketmaster at 800-736-1420 or online at www.ticketmaster.com.
Louis C.K.’s current prominence is hardly the result of an overnight success. He first took the stage in 1984 at an open-mic in Boston, but he was so discouraged by the experience he didn’t perform again for two years, according to a press release.
He worked in Boston and then New York and landed TV appearances until 1996 when HBO released his first half-hour comedy special.
C.K. is known for a dogged work ethic and in recent years he has released hour-long TV specials, a concert film and appears in his own comedy series on FX.
