Louis C.K. hasn’t left stand-up behind. The comedian of all trades has decided to take his show on the road, and announced spring tour dates Tuesday, according to Variety. He currently has 13 upcoming shows listed on his website, running from May 17 to June 9 and spanning six cities.

The first show will be in Baltimore, and he’ll later make stops in Asbury Park, New Jersey; Mashantucket, Connecticut; Chicago; and Wilkes-Barre and Reading, Pennsylvania. Beyond that, he has more tour plans in the works. He promised fans in his email newsletter that summer and fall dates will be announced next week, with stops including additional U.S. cities and Europe.

“I’ve been working on this particular stand-up material for a long time and I’m excited to bring it to you on all these various stages,” wrote C.K.

The news is particularly welcome, as C.K. told The Hollywood Reporter‘s Scott Feinberg that his FX series, Louie, may actually be over rather than on hiatus. Although it hasn’t officially been canceled, the comedian revealed that he doesn’t think he still has stories for his character on the autobiographical show. Strange as that sounds, it makes sense: C.K. is far from his days as a struggling comic.

“(FX Network President and General Manager) John Landgraf and I have always thought … it may come back with a different set of stories from a different angle a little further down the road,” said C.K., leaving some hope for Louie alive. “And I don’t know where that’s from yet, so it just depends on if it writes.”

It’s a comfort to know that, whatever that fate of Louie, we can expect more from C.K. He’s busy with projects like Better Things and Baskets for FX, One Mississippi for Amazon, and Horace and Pete, a self-financed and self-distributed series.  The tour may also serve as a good promotional opportunity for the latter. The comedian admitted last month that the project was millions of dollars in the negative, and C.K. was hoping the webisodes would pay for themselves by summer. Perhaps, with a little help from his tour, they will.
