Louis CK is a groundbreaking and revolutionary comedian. He both writes for and stars in the wildly successful show Louie, which has raised the bar and set new standards for sitcoms across the board.
The comedian himself started the rumor about his upcoming show in Israel back in April when he was being interviewed on Howard Stern's radio show.
He said that "I'm going to appear in a type of soccer stadium and I'll be earning..."
"Millions," Stern finished for him.
"Yea, a lot of money," CK confirmed.
Stern, who is Jewish, replied saying "Jews have money."
Louis CK wasn't completely off base. The Payis Arena is the home court for the capital's basketball team Hapoel Jerusalem.
CK is one of the most popular and respected comedians in the US. His paternal grandfather, whose original last name was Székely, was a Hungarian Jew who immigrated to Mexico, where he met his wife and had three children, whom he raised Catholic.
CK will be brought to Israel by the Sabres Media Group, a media company which represents Israel's largest comedic acts.
