Louis C.K.'s HBO Special Will Air In April, Will Be Available Online In September

Last November, Louis C.K. announced that his next special would air on HBO before he releases it through his website. But details of the taping or its broadcast were scant -- until now.

In an email to his mailing list this afternoon, C.K. told fans that his special would be broadcast on HBO in April, and would be available for a $5 download on his website in September. The special will be made up of material he has crafted over his current tour, tickets of which are available (mostly) exclusively through his website.

He also announced that he is adding shows in Boise, Colorado Springs and Las Vegas, where he will perform a special show at the MGM Grand. The tour will end in Phoenix, where he will shoot his special over four shows on Feb. 15 and 16.

This special will be C.K.'s second special for HBO, after 2007's "Shameless." He also had a short-lived sitcom on the cable channel, "Lucky Louie."

More information can be found on Louis C.K.'s official website.
