The American Comedian, Louis C.K. made a surprise comeback on stage after 10 Months off stage. He performed an unscheduled stand-up set at New York’s Comedy Cellar on Sunday.
While audience were expected him to hint on the sexual misconduct scandal he has faced. Louis C.K. performed for 15 minutes telling audience joke but never joke on his sex scandal.
A report has it that in November, five women came forward with allegations of sexual harassment and abuse against the comedian.
Louis C.K. acknowledged the accusations were true and apologized.
“These stories are true. At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my dick without asking first, which is also true,”
“But what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your dick isn’t a question. It’s a predicament for them. The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly.”
Louis C.K. went on to say that he is “remorseful” and has “tried to learn” from his irresponsible behavior.
FX cut ties with him shortly after. He was the executive producer of several shows on the network, including “Better Things,” “Baskets” and “Louie.” Netflix also announced that they were scrapping plans of an upcoming stand-up special starring the comedian.
