Louis C.K.’s latest performance met with protests outside NYC comedy club

Louis C.K.’s attempted comeback isn’t going smoothly. 

On Monday, C.K., who is attempting to mount a comeback after admitting to sexual misconduct with five women, returned to New York City’s famed Comedy Cellar for his third post-scandal performance, and  a handful of protesters descended on the New York City club in response. The protesters held signs with slogans like “Does this sign make you uncomfortable, Louie?” and “When you support Louis C.K., you tell women your laughter is more important than their sexual assaults and loss of their careers.”

It’s not clear whether C.K. saw the protesters or interacted with them.

New York Times culture writer Sopan Deb, who was in attendance, tweeted that C.K.’s latest set did allude to the controversy surrounding his downfall and return to performing. 

“Louis started his set with ‘How was your year?’ he tweeted afterward, adding that C.K. told the audience he was there because he needed the income, having lost $35 million in a single day.
