Keep your eyes peeled for Louis C.K. if you’re heading to a comedy show Friday night — the Newton native has shown up and performed at local clubs twice this week.

Boston Magazine reports that the actor and comedian first performed a surprise set Tuesday night at McGreevy’s in the Back Bay.

C.K. then showed up around midnight Thursday at the Late Night Comedy series at the Burren in Somerville and shared the stage with New York City standup comic Joe List.

It was the first time the comedian of Louie fame performed at the Davis Square venue, according to the club.

C.K., who has a history of performing surprise shows in the Boston area, has been in town this week for shows at the Wang Theatre through Friday night.
