One of the biggest names in comedy is coming to town. On Tuesday, Louis C.K. added new dates to his tour, including four nights in Austin.

The beloved stand-up comedian will perform at ACL Live at the Moody Theater January 4-7, 2017. He swung by Austin during the Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival in 2014, but this is his first solo gig in Austin since 2012.

This is the latest leg of a tour that started in May. The comedian's only other Texas dates are November 9-10, 2016, at the Music Hall at Fair Park in Dallas. He played Houston in July.

Tickets to the Austin shows are on sale now for $50 each through ACL Live. The small price reflects his wishes to keep shows affordable.

"As always, I'm keeping the price of my tickets down to an average of $50, including all charges. I know that's not nothing. But it's less than more than that," he said in an open letter to fans.
