After trying out new material at a Brooklyn show in August and hosting Satuday Night Live, Louis C.K. has announced on Twitter that he will do an upcoming standup special for HBO. The Hollywood Reporter notes the special, expected sometime next year, will be taped at one of Louis C.K.'s 16-city tour stops, and that he will direct the special.

"I'm delighted to welcome the gifted Louis C.K. back to HBO," said HBO programming president Michael Lombardo. "This comic genius remains one of the freshest voices on the scene, and HBO is proud to provide an uncensored forum for his provocative humor."

As he did with his Live at the Beacon Theatre special, Louis C.K. will also make the new show available on his website a few months after it airs for $5.
