Known for comedy that combines the highbrow and lowbrow, Louis Katz's unique style has been described as a "mix of scatology and Jewish intellectualism." His career started at age 9 when two of his jokes were read by Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show, so it's no surprise he grew up to become an internationally headlining comedian. His numerous television appearances include NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, HBO's Down & Dirty with Jim Norton and most recently, Comedy Central's Comedy Underground with Dave Attell. He was given his own half-hour Comedy Central Presents special in 2011, coinciding with the release of his debut comedy album, If These Balls Could Talk, a delightfully irreverent and unapologetically raunchy trip through Louis's twisted mind.

“Religion, politics, superstition, commonly held and comforting Beliefs, ghosts, astrology and other silly things people rarely think rationally about are all on the chopping block”, says tour founder Ian Harris. Harris, a life-long skeptic and nationally touring headlining comedian for over 19 years created the tour to help advance free thought and fill a much-needed hole in the entertainment field for free thinkers, skeptics and non-believers. “Our goal is to not only provide an entertainment outlet for the millions of non-believers in the world, but to also maybe make a few people question how they look at such topics. There are a lot of people on the fence or basically in the free thinker’s closet and afraid to speak out about their beliefs. Hopefully if the get in a comedy club or theatre with several hundred people like them all laughing and having a great time, it will help them feel more confident in their beliefs, or lack thereof.”
The percentage of non-believers and skeptics in the U.S. is growing rapidly. The Evolution of Comedy Tour is looking to tap into that previously un-tapped market. Make no mistake, though the tour is a new idea, these comedians are solid veterans with a proven track record making audiences laugh all over the world for two decades.
