My question is how will he enforce the cancelling of tickets to be scalped? Unless it's on a site like stubhub, where seats are listed, most people just put the area the tix are in.
Louie CK Cutting Out The Ticket Services And Selling Them Himself
Louie CK is getting ready for his national tour and is ready to take on high priced ticket services and scalpers. Louie wants to make sure fans aren’t getting killed with ticket service charges. And he’s doing that by selling the tickets himself. He also explains here how he intends to deal with people who think they buy tickets and score a bigger payday for themselves.
“By selling the tickets exclusively on my site, I’ve cut the
ticket charges way down and absorbed them into the ticket price.
To buy a ticket, you join NOTHING. Just use your credit card and
buy the damn thing. opt in to the email list if you want, and
you’ll only get emails from me.
Also, you’ll see that if you try to sell the ticket anywhere for
anything above the original price, we have the right to cancel
your ticket (and refund your money). this is something I intend
to enforce. There are some other rules you may find annoying but
they are meant to prevent someone who has no intention of seeing
the show from buying the ticket and just flipping it for twice
the price from a thousand miles away.”

I just wish more venues weren't exclusively contracted to sell tickets through Ticketmaster. Louis would be able to actually perform in PA.
see those posts that makes it look like like I'm a psycho talking to myself, well there was a dude there
and he got all pussy
My heart loves his stance against scalpers. My brain reruns cold economics discussion that is pro scalper. Supply and demand etc etc.
fuck my brain, right on it's smooth thoughtless surface.
already have my tickets for the cleveland show. fuck yeah louie, so much respect for this guy and how he does his business.
Got my tickets for the Cleveland show yesterday (row K, I'm pleased). He also tweeted out today that they are identifying the ticket scalpers that purchased tickets and deactivating them.
Hooray for Louie! I wanted to see Tenacious D, but the $13.50 extra made me not get tickets. Fuck Ticketmaster, Fuck Live Nation
Louie rules. Haven't seen his standup in a while. Always has new material. Always hilarious. But I always drink too much and forget the set.
@CheezWhiz You are a chatty cathy!
@Binary Daoist His show is the not only THE best comedy on TV, but one of the best shows, period.
@Binary Daoist I just wish they weren't sandwiching Louie and Wilfred between such shit.
@elephant_droid Especially since they give his website link with his name spelled correctly. I'm hard on these guys about this kind of stuff, but if they want to be taken as a respectable website, they can't let it be filled with misspelled words and basic punctuation mistakes (the unnecessary apostrophes are the WORST), and misspelled names (especially someone as current and relevant as Louis CK).
@FLprodivider66 im broke but plenty of time before the show. i definitely want to go.
