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

He told the paper that he was surprised C.K. reemerged so quickly.

In November, C.K. confessed to masturbating in front of women colleagues and expressed remorse for wielding his influence "irresponsibly". But he did watch a tape of the set and said that when the host announced C.K., the audience broke out into "sustained applause", with some folks "giving a little bit extra", as if to show they "wanted to hear what he had to say". Dressed in a black V-neck T-shirt and gray trousers, he did a 15-minute set that touched on what Mr. Dworman called "typical Louis C.K. stuff" - racism, waitresses' tips, parades.

Though one audience member followed up with Dworman about wishing he knew about the comic's appearance - to decide whether or not he would have attended - others followed up to say they were happy about seeing the show, and reportedly gave C.K. a standing ovation before he even began. 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. "Oh, you hired this kid who had a bad past.' Or if I found out I had a bartender today who had a past like Louis", would anyone expect me to fire him?

In October a year ago, Comedians Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov alleged that Louis C.K. invited them back to his hotel room and then asked if he could take his penis out. "It's not really about that", Dworman said of his club allowing C.K.to drop in. He later admitted to each incident in a statement, saying "these stories are true" and wrote that he'd brought "pain to my family, my friends, my children and their mother".

Ex-Trump lawyer investigated for $20 million bank fraud
However, that policy is not ironclad, and some have speculated that special counsel Robert Mueller might choose to circumvent it. Late Sunday night, it was reported that Michael Cohen is being investigated for "well over $20 million" in potential fraud.

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

He did not reference the sexual misconduct allegations.

Dworman was surprised that C.K. returned so soon, and in such a setting, and that he didn't address the controversy at all. "And I care about doing the right thing", continued Dworman.
