Ticket holders for comedian Lewis Black’s January 29 Maui stop on his “Off the Rails” tour were notified January 6 of the show’s cancellation, but the famously agitated comedian has given no reason for axing the gig. According to his official website the comic cancelled all January performances following three consecutive dates in Florida, which ended in Sarasota Dec. 22.

“It just happened suddenly,” said Galen Kiyota, who staffs Maui Arts and Cultural Center’s box office. “We usually hear some rumbling before we get the official cancellation notice, but this one just dropped off the books.” Black’s publicist did not immediately respond to phone calls and email inquiries.

According to his website, the tour resumes February 3 in Victoria, British Columbia. Ticket holders were refunded by the MACC January 9 as the show has not yet been rescheduled. For ticketing questions, call the box office at (808) 242-SHOW (7469).
