Louis C.K. Made His Stand-Up Return and Twitter Made Its Disgust Known

It hasn't even been a full year since he admitted to sexual misconduct.

Less than a year after admitting to sexual misconduct, including with women he worked with, Louis C.K. has made his return to stand-up comedy.

While many predicted he would come back to the stage at some point, there remains surprise to see him try it so soon. Reports from those who attended the unannounced set on Sunday night, at the Comedy Cellar in New York, describe a mostly appreciative audience, although there were also several women in the front who sat stone-faced throughout.

The set, which is said to have featured an awkward joke about rape whistles being unclean and no mention of his misconduct, also received negative reactions on Twitter, from celebrities and non-celebs alike.

A report from ABC follows, which includes an interview with the club’s owner, Noam Dworman, who told The Hollywood Reporter he learned the comedian had performed earlier at a club in Long Island, Governor’s of Levittown, before deciding to also go to the Comedy Cellar on a whim.
