The massive storm battering the east coast of the US at the minute has caused plenty of disruption not least to Louis CK fans who were hoping to catch him on stage at Madison Square Garden.
Since the prediction was that there would be 'historic' snow falls and things would get pretty bad, Louis decided to cancel the show that he had scheduled for Madison Square Garden last night. Being at a bit of a loose end, he decided to go on Letterman and have a bit of a chat too, which is definitely worth a look because Louis is always entertaining. The two comics pretty much just sat back and had a laugh, chatting about everything and anything, including #DeflateGate.
Anyway, back to the point of the piece. Louis also wrote a letter himself that was sent out as an email to every fan that was disappointed with the fact that the show was canceled, and it's pretty fantastic.
As you might expect it's funny, smart and would more than likely have given people a laugh even though they were now stuck in for the night and wouldn't get to see him live.
Hi. It's Louis CK here to make sure everyone knows that my show tomorrow at Madison Square Garden has been canceled. All ticket holders will automatically get a refund. I am really sorry about this and I am surprised to learn as I write this that there is only one L in the word canceled. I'll have to take my phone's word for it. But it doesn't look right to me.
In any case, there seems to be a massive storm approaching New York City. They are calling this storm "historic" which…. Well I didn't know you could call a thing historic if it hasn't happened yet. But I’m not one to defy future historic events. And I have to be respectful of the responsibility I have to the 15,000 people who are holding tickets to the show and could be stranded somewhere historically trying to get to or from my show. I think it's clearly better that I alter history in the name of safety and cancel. Besides, if you've ever tried to get your deposit back when you rent a banquet hall for a wedding that gets snowed out, you don't want to even know what the deposit on Madison Square Jesus Christing Garden is.

So. No show. I will be on Letterman tonight, though. So you can yell boo right at my stupid and very handsome face on your tv screen or on your paper towel or your watch or whatever you view Letterman on.
Also I will be contacting you very soon about my new standup special which will be historically available only on my website louisck.net very soon.
I really want to thank everyone who came to the shows at MSG. It was an incredible experience. The audiences were great. And the crew at MSG is classy and professional.
Okay. That's it. I have to do some laundry now.
Take care of yourself and don't be a jerk to people.
That aforementioned special that Louis talks about will be available on his site from this evening too, if you fancy getting your hands on it.
