Louis C.K. will perform in Baltimore on Dec. 31 and at the Kennedy Center on Feb. 1. (Eric Leibowitz/FX)

Like he did earlier this year with his “Live at the Beacon Theater” comedy special, C.K. is selling his comedy directly to fans; in this case, there are no exorbitant ticket service fees to speak of: Every ticket on his 36-date tour is $45.

Groups of seats are still available for the 7 p.m. show — that’s early enough to get some laughs in and head out on the town before midnight — but get them while you can: Two Feb. 1 shows at the Kennedy Center have already appear to have sold out.

Update: C.K. just tweeted about the D.C. shows experiencing “technical issues,” so there may still be hope if you’re trying to get Kennedy Center tickets.

Update 2: A note on C.K.’s Web site addresses the current unavailability of tickets to the Kennedy Center shows: “Due to unforeseen circumstances, we’ve taken the Washington shows off sale temporarily. They’ll be back on sale as soon as possible. Please bear with us.” So it appears there could still be a chance to catch the comic in D.C. after all.
