The Russian military has destroyed 74 Ukrainian military facilities, including 11 air bases, a report said quoting Russia’s Defense Ministry on Thursday. Many have spoken out against the Russian invasion of the Ukraine, from The Weeknd and Cardi B to Ashton Kutcher, Sean Penn and David Lynch. It seems like Louis C.K. has got plans to bag some cash amidst the chaos.
Louis C.K. is rumored to be cracking jokes in an upcoming performance in the warzone. Despite Russia’s continued invasion of Ukraine, the once-cancelled stand-up comic appears to be laughing in the face of danger, as his planned shows at the National Palace of Arts in Kyiv are still slated to take place this weekend.
A user tweeted claiming: “The Louis C.K. Show in Kyiv has not been cancelled.” The trending post was accompanied by a graphic reading: “Dear attendees, Louis C.K. performance will take place, as planned, on February 25 and 26, 2022. Tickets for Louis C.K. show purchased earlier remain valid for new dates and do not require an exchange.”
Despite the attacks on Ukraine and the ensuing instability, which has triggered a huge evacuation from the country, Louis C.K.’s representatives have yet to formally clarify the status of his scheduled gigs. Tickethunt.com, an online marketplace, is still selling tickets to the shows at a 30% discount.
Daredevils seeking for a good chuckle may get good balcony seats to Louis C.K.’s concert for around $11.70. But here’s the catch: concertgoers will supposedly be required to leave their phones at home. According to Gawker, the venue’s security crew will require attendees to place their phones in lockboxes so as not to disclose any sensitive material to the media.
