Louis CK Returned to the Stage Last Night and Twitter Is Angry

Share

The Comedy Cellar is legendary, and is also the comedy club that C.K. has been frequenting for a decade.

In November, five women came forward to the New York Times with allegations of inappropriate behavior by Louis C.K.in November.

Comedians Dana Min Goodman, Abby Schachner, Julia Wolov, Rebecca Corry in November alleged that the comedian either pleasured himself in front of them, asked to do it or did so over the phone.

Louis C.K. performed for 15 minutes but did not address the sexual misconduct scandal he has faced, according to Dworman.

When Louis CK admitted to a number of acts of sexual misconduct past year, he said in an apparently heartfelt statement: "I have spent my long and lucky career talking and saying anything I want".

Comedian Louis C.K. reportedly performed his first comedy set since he admitted to accusations of sexual misconduct made against him made by multiple women previous year.

Trump understood the simple math that countries with which we have trade deficits would have to come to the negotiating table. The plan would not contain an automatic expiration for NAFTA as proposed in the prior US demand for a "sunset clause".

It's unclear whether C.K. will hit the stage again anytime soon.

CNN has reached out to Louis C.K.'s representatives for comment. He released a statement in which he said, "These stories are true".

Unfortunately for some of the guests who would rather not have seen him, Louis CK's appearance was unannounced and was not listed on the bill when people bought their tickets, which prompted some on Twitter to suggest it would have been better for the comedian to receive "consent" before dropping in unannounced. 'He proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating'. I didn't think that I was doing any of that because my position allowed me not to think about it'.

Comedian Jackie Kashian tweeted that she didn't think C.K. would perform stand-up until he wrote a bit about his actions. But it would have been infinitely worse to feel the swell of sympathy around me as the audience leapt to its feet, ready and willing to brush aside what he did so they could hear a few jokes about (reportedly) "racism, waitresses' tips, [and] parades".
