Louis CK has postponed his Oct. 28 standup show in New York City because of the threat of Hurricane Sandy.

“I thought about this very carefully and I really started to worry about making 4300 people come into midtown manhattan on Sunday night, which is just when the stormatron 5000 is supposed to crush our empire. new york state has ordered the sutdown of all mass transit (subways, buses and commuter trains) as of 7pm Sunday night, [sic]” he wrote on his website.

“If it’s any consolation, I’m eating a pretty staggering fee for cancelling the show. But I can take it. What I can’t take is the thought that there’s a CHANCE 4300 people will be in danger trying to get home from my stupid show,” he continued.

The comedian added that the show will be rescheduled for March 2, and tickets for tonight will be honored at that time.
