Louis C.K. has just made Boston-area comedy fans’ Monday a lot less crappy. We’re told he decided to perform at the Wilbur Theater this Monday to raise money for the New England Center For Children, whose mission is “to transform the lives of children with autism worldwide through education, research, and technology.”
The organization has been long-supported by C.K.’s friend, Robert Smigel, famous comedy writer and creator and voice of Triumph the Insult Comic Dog. Smigel and his wife Michelle, who have an autistic son, have also been integral in the production of Comedy Central’s every-other-year Night Of Too Many Stars, which also raises money for autism awareness.
Tickets for Monday’s show went on sale moments ago. You can get more info at the Wilbur’s Facebook page. C.K. is no stranger to charity. He periodically performs shows to raise money for his daughters’ public school and he’s given no less than $280,000 worth of profits from his latest special Live at the Beacon Theatre to a handful of charities worldwide.
