Louis CK back on stage 10 months after sexual misconduct scandal

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

The performance was Louis C.K.'s first since five women accused him of sexual misconduct last November, including allegations he had masturbated in front of them.

Twitter user Seth Simons shared a list of Comedy Cellar performers and said comedians performing at the famous NY comedy spot had the "power to make it clear that Louis CK's return is not acceptable".

In November of past year, five women came forward in the pages of The New York Times about how the comedian masturbated in front of them.

Dworman said C.K. was greeted with an ovation by the sold-out crowd.

CK subsequently issued a statement in response to the allegations, admitting everything that was said was true, confirming a long-held industry-known "open secret" amongst the comedy community.

Louis C.K. admitted previous year 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. FX Networks canceled their production deal with him as a result, and the released of the film that he wrote, produced and starred in, "I Love You, Daddy" was canceled.

GOP House member, wife face charges
Authorities say the couple stole $250,000 and then filed false campaign finance records. His lawyers said in 2017 that Hunter and his wife repaid the campaign about $60,000.

But that bargain collapses entirely when someone decides to transgress far beyond the norm, like C.K., and the hope that someone is not actually a toxic narcissist dissolves when they reveal themselves as such.

"I believe people can grow and change, but this urgency to bring him (and others) back SO soon just sends such a bad message", she tweeted.

But he said his staff messaged him about Louis C.K.'s appearance and he watched a tape of it. Dworman said, adding "there can't be a permanent life sentence on someone who does something wrong". But he chose to just rip the Band-Aid off'. His return to the stage isn't sitting well with many people on Twitter, though. "And I care about doing the right thing".
