Louis C.K. performs first stand-up set since admitting to sexual misconduct

Louis CK

Last night he made his first public appearance since the allegations emerged, performing a surprise standup set at the Comedy Cellar in NY. After apologizing and staying out of the spotlight for nearly a year, C.K. made a surprise appearance at the Comedy Cellar in NY. He made his post-scandal debut at the Comedy Cellar in New York's Greenwich Village where, according to the owner of the venue, Noam Dworman, his set consisted of "typical Louis CK stuff" like racism and tipping in restaurants - but no mention of his past misconduct. "It sounded just like he was trying to work out some new material", said Dworman.

It may feel like only 15 minutes ago that people were wondering if C.K.'s career was ruined, but Dworman said that the comedian was "very relaxed" and that he received an ovation even before he performed.

"I didn't think it was going to happen as soon as it did", Dworman told the Times, saying that one audience member called the Comedy Cellar to object to the club allowing C.K.to perform. In addition, entertainment company The Orchard cancelled the release of his film I Love You, Daddy. His behavior included masturbating in front of women, or just pulling his penis out in general.

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.

But, he added, "there can't be a permanent life sentence on someone who does something wrong". Louis C.K. acknowledged the accusations were true and apologized. But he made a decision to just rip the Band-Aid off'. Every complaint goes through me like a knife. CK's return to the stage will be seen as an early test of whether audiences are willing to forgive him for his misdeeds. He concluded it by promising, "I will now step back and take a long time to listen". Louis C.K.'s speedy return to comedy has left many fans - particularly female fans - feeling angry, and its prompted a discussion about how (and when and if) the #MeToo movement will move forward in the future.
