He made an unannounced appearance Sunday night at the Comedy Cellar in New York City's Greenwich Village.

He appeared at around 11pm and dressed in a black V-neck shit and gray trousers, performed a set of 'typical Louis C.K stuff, ' including racism, tipping waitresses and parades, Noam Dworman, the owner of the Comedy Cellar, told the Times.

Though Dworman acknowledged that "some people will be upset with [him]" for allowing C.K.to perform at his club, he said "there can't be a permanent life sentence on someone who does something wrong".

He said the sold-out crowd at the club gave him a standing ovation before he even began his set.

"It sounded just like he was trying to work out some new material, nearly like any time of the last 10 years he would come in at the beginning of a new act", Dworman told the Times.

Comedian Louis C.K. is attempting to quietly revive his career after allegations of misconduct surfaced in the wake of the #MeToo movement.

WR Ryan Switzer shipped from Raiders to Steelers
You knew the Pittsburgh Steelers would have to release someone to fit new wide receiver Ryan Switzer on the 90-man roster. The exact return for the Raiders remains unclear, although Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that draft picks are involved.

"I learned yesterday the extent to which I left these women who admired me feeling badly about themselves and cautious around other men who would never have put them in that position", he said at the time. But he made a decision to just rip the Band-Aid off'.

After a New York Times article published the allegations, Louis admitted to the acts of sexual misconduct.

CK subsequently issued a statement in response to the allegations, admitting everything that was said was true, confirming a long-held industry-known "open secret" amongst the comedy community. He also lost deals with Universal, Netflix, and HBO.

Cable television network FX, a unit of 21st Century Fox, also severed its ties with CK and Time Warner's TBS network said it was suspending production on upcoming animated comedy The Cops, which CK co-created and was due to star in.

Before the New York Times broke the story, Louis refused to talk about "rumours" of inappropriate behaviour on multiple occasions.
