Protests at Louis CK's comedy club appearance

Louis C.K. Performs Scheduled Set at the Comedy Cellar

Louis C.K. Performs Scheduled Set at the Comedy Cellar

Though Comedy Central recently greenlighted a This Week At The Comedy Cellar stand-up series, C.K.is not expected to be featured. But until now, his performances had been unannounced. At another appearance earlier this month, two women left the show, the club told the New York Times. The other sign read: "Does this sign make you uncomfortable, Louie?"

And while the New York Post tweeted that protestors "descended" on the gig, Deb, who was there, provides a considerably less dramatic account: Two apparently unrelated protestors picketed the club, one carrying a sign reading "When you support Louis C.K., you tell women your laughter is more important than their sexual assaults and loss of their careers".

Newton native Louis C.K. performed a pair of sold-out shows at the Comedy Cellar in New York City Monday night, drawing protesters in the process.

Just last week, one of the women who accused C.K. of sexual misconduct slammed Sarah Silverman, a longtime friend of C.K. who told Howard Stern that she let the disgraced comedian masturbate in front of her. It's black people, it turns out. He also claimed he went through hell, saying, "Hard things, you survive them or you don't".

The 51-year-old, who was hit with the cancellation of an upcoming film and severed ties with HBO and Netflix after becoming one of the most prominent men brought down in the wake of the #MeToo movement, drew protesters who believed he should not be welcomed back to the stage.

The latter is used on phones like the original Google Pixel and Essential phones, helping stabilize video (but not photos). Smaller pixels, of course, means worse image quality, but this solution is still viable for secondary or auxiliary cameras.

Hell is "not that bad" because he's "been there", he said.

During an October 10 set at West Side Comedy Club, C.K. joked that he "lost $35 million in an hour" because of the masturbation scandal.

"He shouldn't feel comfortable performing here when he makes so many people feel uncomfortable because of what he does".

Miller said three women in the audience told her they thought C.K. was "funny aside from everything else", and "deserves a chance to come back".
