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

Louis CK

Noam Dworman, the owner of the Cellar, told the Times that C.K.'s set lasted about 15 minutes and consisted of "typical Louis C.K. stuff".

"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", he said to the New York Times.

Cast member Louis C.K. attends the "American Hustle" movie premiere in 2013.

Film critic Scott Weinberg said the fact the comedy club owner made it a surprise appearance didn't give the audience the choice of whether to watch the comedian, but rather it was thrust upon them.

Louis C.K. became one of the dozens of men who have been disgraced by allegations of sexual misconduct amid the rise of the #MeToo movement.

Louis C.K. was accused a year ago of sexual misconduct by five different women, some of whom said that the comedian exposed himself and began masturbating in front of them. At the time, I said to myself that what I did was OK because I never showed a woman my dick without asking first, which is also true. However, Dworman said he also received several follow-up emails from attendees expressing their delight that Louis C.K. took the stage.

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

Unfortunately for some of the guests who would rather not have seen him, Louis CK's appearance was unannounced and was not listed on the bill when people bought their tickets, which prompted some on Twitter to suggest it would have been better for the comedian to receive "consent" before dropping in unannounced.

"The power I had over these women is that they admired me", he wrote, "And I wielded that power irresponsibly". "I have spent my long and lucky career talking and saying anything I want".

"I didn't think it was going to happen as soon as it did", he told the newspaper.

In October previous year, 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.
