Comedian Louis CK accused of pattern of sexual misconduct

  • Nothing to joke about here

Comedy duo, Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov alleged that in 2002, C.K. exposed himself to them after inviting them to hang out in his hotel room. In 2003, Abby Schachner says she overheard the comedian masturbating as they spoke on the phone. Their accounts are remarkably similar, involving incidents where the Louie star either asked if he could masturbate in front of them, or simply did so without their consent. Courteney Cox and ex-husband David Arquette even confirmed one such incident from 2005 involving actress Rebecca Corey.

"Louis is not going to answer any questions", Louis C.K.'s publicist Lewis Kay told the Times.

The comic also was slated to appear on CBS' "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" on Thursday, but that appearance was shelved too, CBS said.

Louis C.K. wrote, directed and stars in I Love You, Daddy.

Because Louis C.K.'s alleged behavior is easy to spot, Notaro's One Mississippi episode, "Can't Fight This Feeling" is a very thinly veiled take-down of the comedian.

"He proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating", Goodman said. TIFF programmers screened and gave I Love You, Daddy a world premiere after C.K. surprised Toronto organizers and let them know the film existed. She said that, while she was working on The Chris Rock Show in the late '90s, where Louis C.K. was a writer and producer, he asked her if he could masturbate in front of her repeatedly.

The Hollywood Reporter said the schedule changes were announced as The New York Times is preparing to publish a possibly damaging story about the comedian. But Corry said that C.K. apologized for shoving her in a bathroom, not allegedly masturbating in front of her, causing her to think there have been other incident of misconduct. He has been replaced by William H. Macy, THR reports. She said it's common talk at comedy clubs "what some big-shot comedian or person has done".

Corry said that the comedian acknowledged the incident and said, "I used to misread people back then".

In 2016, Roseanne Barr told The Daily Beast she had heard "so many stories" about Louis C.K.'s mistreatment of women.

A spokesman for Louis C.K. didn't return immediate messages for comment.

One scene in the movie features a character pantomiming masturbation for an extended period of time, though Louis CK told the Times in September that it was not intended as an allusion to the rumors.
