Red-hot comedy star Louis CK will return to HBO next year in an all-new stand-up comedy special, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming. To be taped at one of the stops of his sold-out 16-city tour, which wraps in February, the exclusive presentation will be his second hour-long special on the network and will be directed by Louis CK.

"I'm delighted to welcome the gifted Louis CK back to HBO," said 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."

Earlier this year, Louis CK won two Emmys(R), for Writing for a Comedy Series for the FX series "Louie," and Writing for a Variety Special, for "Louis CK Live at the Beacon Theatre." On Nov. 3, he hosted "Saturday Night Live" for the first time.

His previous HBO credits include the hour-long 2007 stand-up special "Louis CK: Shameless," and two half-hour specials, a 1997 edition of "HBO Comedy Half-Hour," and 2005's "One Night Stand: Louis CK." In addition to creating and starring in the 2006 series "Lucky Louie," the network's first multi-camera comedy series, he won an Emmy(R) as part of the writing team for HBO's "The Chris Rock Show." Louis CK also appeared with Ricky Gervais, Chris Rock and Jerry Seinfeld in the 2011 HBO special "Talking Funny."

Louis CK, Dave Becky and Blair Breard will executive produce the special.
