Louis C.K. Returns to the Stage for First Stand-Up Set Since Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Nine months after Louis C.K. was accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women, the comedian reportedly returned to the stand-up stage on Sunday for a surprise set at the Comedy Cellar in New York City.

Club owner Noam Dworman told The New York Times that C.K., 50, took the stage for a 15-minute set around 11 p.m. local time, performing for a sold-out crowd of roughly 115 people.

The Louie star “was very relaxed,” and was dressed in a black V-neck T-shirt and gray pants, the outlet reported.

He did not mention the allegations against him, and instead worked his way through “typical Louis C.K. stuff” like racism, parades, and tips for waitresses. “It sounded just like he was trying to work out some new material,” Dworman explained to the Times. “Almost like any time of the last 10 years he would come in at the beginning of a new act.”

The audience greeted C.K. with a standing ovation, said Dworman to the Times — though one attendee has since called the club to object about the appearance, the owner recalled, wishing he had known in advance “so he could’ve decided whether to have been there or not.”

The New York Times published an article in November in which five women detailed their alleged experiences with C.K., including claims he masturbated in front of them.

Comedians Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov alleged that while with C.K. in his hotel room after their show at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in 2002, he “proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating.”

Comedian Rebecca Corry alleged that C.K. “asked if we could go to my dressing room so he could masturbate in front of me” while filming a TV pilot in 2005, and writer Abby Schachner alleged she heard him masturbating through the phone during a 2003 call. A fifth, anonymous woman alleged that while working on The Chris Rock Show in the late 1990s, C.K. masturbated while she sat with him in his office, and a co-worker corroborated her story to the Times.

C.K. responded with a lengthy statement in which he admitted that “these stories are true.”

He added, “The hardest regret to live with is what you’ve done to hurt someone else. And I can hardly wrap my head around the scope of hurt I brought on them … I have spent my long and lucky career talking and saying anything I want. I will now step back and take a long time to listen.”

Since then, FX severed ties with C.K., whose shows Louie and Better Things aired on the network. C.K. was dropped by all his reps, too, while Netflix cancelled an upcoming stand-up special and HBO cut all of his content from its library. Orchard also canceled the release of his film I Love You, Daddy — though C.K. bought the rights to the title back.

Louis C.K. Goes All White Privilege in ‘Saturday Night Live’ Monologue

Louis C.K. took on a chicken’s racism and white privilege in his return stint as host of “Saturday Night Live,” and left Donald Trump completely out of it.

“Why did the chicken cross the road?” he asked right at the start of his monologue. “Because there was a black guy walking behind him.” The chicken was nervous, looking over his shoulder, and when nothing happened, he felt horrible, telling himself, “I’m such a racist,” the comedian explained.

“Don’t be upset, this is not a racist joke,” he added. “The chicken … was definitely racist, but that’s chickens. They’re very closed down, suspicious.” The bird, by the way, was later killed and eaten in the story.

On the other side of the road, he talked about the time he used his white privilege in a tony hotel, demanding to know what had happened to his laundry.

“You can hear in my voice that I’m white,” he told the concierge. “It’s wrong that white people get preferential treatment. But as long as they do, what’s going on at this hotel? I’m supposed to get the best! Because I’m white! Which is awful and wrong … but where is it right now?” 

A frantic manager asks, “What white happened?” and launches an investigation into C.K.’s laundry, which, it turns out he never turned in.

C.K.’s last stint as “SNL” host in 2015 rattled fans because he joked about child molestation. This time, he joked about sex with a goat. “I don’t care if you’re upset,” he said. “I’m still getting the goat.”

Louis C.K. Debuts New Special Online Before Going On Hiatus

Louis C.K. announced Friday that he’ll be taking an “extended hiatus” from his much-loved series “Louie” in order to pursue other projects. But Saturday, the comic revealed a consolation prize for fans: He’s released a new special on his website called “Live at Madison Square Garden.”

Sure, it’s not all-new material. Some of the Madison Square Garden show, he explained in a letter to fans, was repeated from his last special, “Live at the Comedy Store.” BUT some of it wasn’t. So if you didn’t make it to New York City to watch any of the last three shows he did at MSG — most of you, probably — parts of it will be new to you. It costs whatever you feel like paying, anywhere from $ 1 to $ 85. 

Louis C.K. continued on in his letter to let us know he’s having a good summer, and feels pretty good about the world, even though parts of it are “a huge mess.”

“I hope you’re all relatively okay or better,” he wrote. “I hope that nobody shoots anybody today. What are the odds of that? Low. But I hope it.” Same.

Louis C.K. Gets The Best Father’s Day Message From His TV Daughter

If any grumpy, balding, middle-aged dad is going to earn admiration from his kid, it’s going to be Louis C.K.

Hadley Delany, who plays one of the comedian’s daughters on “Louie,” had a Father’s Day message for her show-biz pop. It beats Hallmark treacle any day.

“You taught me the most important rule of all: never, ever get fat,” she says in a Made Man video posted last week.

Later in the clip, she asks, “What other dad would catch their daughter smoking pot and then take her out for burgers? That’s like an irresponsible level of cool.”

Hey, nobody said the guy was Ward Cleaver.

Check out the full video above. And a belated happy Father’s Day to all of you other stand-up dads, even if you don’t do standup.
