Shelter Island resident Louis C.K. surprised the East End with not just one, but two previously unannounced performances over Thanksgiving weekend.
Billed as “Louis C.K. Working Out New Material,” the shows were just $10 per ticket, and both sold out in no time. The first show, on Friday, featured opening act Joe List. Then on Saturday, with List unable to make it, East Hampton resident Jerry Seinfeld stepped in to open for C.K. Seinfeld did a 5-minute set on how no one is ever where they want to be.
C.K.’s topics included Spider-Man, death, divorce and his man parts. What really brought the house down, though, was hiss impersonation of Matthew McConaughey.
Among the attendees Saturday were Water Mill’s Alan Alda, North Haven artists Eric Fischl and April Gornik, composer Carter Burwell and Goat on a Boat’s Liz Joyce.
