Joker's Wild 

After 22 years of stand-up comedy, Louis C.K. admits that with all his onstage cussing, his mouth could stand a bar of soap. Then the money talks. "Economically speaking, cursing is worth millions of dollars," says C.K., who's at Playhouse Square tonight. "But there are people that will come see clean comics that won't come to see me, because they can't take it." But he marvels at fellow comedians like Jerry Seinfeld and Jim Gaffigan, who can script jokes without a swear word in them. "People used to say proudly, 'And he doesn't ever curse,'" says C.K. about Gaffigan. "The thing about Jim is, he's a very subversive guy, who's pretty clean and a motherfucker onstage." Let the dirty talk begin at 8 tonight at the Ohio Theatre, 1501 Euclid Avenue. Tickets are $10 to $30. Call 216-771-4444 or visit www.playhousesquare.com.
