Louis CK takes stage for first time since #MeToo allegations

Louis C.K. makes unannounced appearance at NYC comedy club

According to The New York Times, Louis C.K. made an unannounced appearance at the Comedy Cellar in New York this weekend. The comedy club owner Noam Dworman told the New York Times that C.K.'s set was filled with "typical Louis C.K. stuff", and that he didn't mention the scandal or the #MeToo movement in his material.

"It sounded just like he was trying to work out some new material, nearly like any time of the last 10 years he would come in at the beginning of a new act", Dworman told the NYT. In the run-up to the 2016 presidential election, C.K.

Despite the audience giving Louis a standing ovation, Dworman said at least one member of the crowd called the club to complain and many voiced their opinions on social media, as well. So far, only one guest has lodged a minor complaint, mostly because they wanted to know that C.K. was a guest in advance so they could decide if they wanted to see him or not.

But he said a number of others responded to the club's routine follow-up email to say they were glad they caught the set.

Dworman did say, however, that "there can't be a permanent life sentence on someone who does something wrong".

Another comedian, Rebecca Corry, said that in 2005 she appeared on a television pilot with Louis C.K., when he asked her if he could masturbate in front of her.

'I had thought that the first time he'd go on would be in a more controlled environment.

Louis C.K. admitted a year ago that accusations of sexual misconduct against him made by five women detailing sexually explicit encounters dating back to 2003 are true, including him allegedly having masturbated in front of a woman.

Their allegations included numerous instances where he masturbated in front of them. He expressed remorse for his actions.

The release of C.K.'s feature film "I Love You, Daddy" - which he wrote, directed and starred in - was shelved. He also lost deals with Universal, Netflix, and HBO.

Before the New York Times broke the story, Louis refused to talk about "rumours" of inappropriate behaviour on multiple occasions.
