It’s been two years since allegations of sexual misconduct caused Louis C.K.’s career to grind to a halt, and the embattled comedian now feels the time is right to mount a comeback.
In an email sent to fans and posted on his website, C.K. announced that he’s currently “on the road doing professional standup comedy. Which consists of sharing jokes, stories, observations, lies, non-lies, and being generally ridiculous for the benefit of a laughing audience.”
He added: “Below are listed some of the places I’m doing these things. Click on the links to buy tickets so you can be there. Or don’t. I will be adding more dates and will post them here. If you’re not already on my email list click below to subscribe.”
He concluded by writing: “See you all (or some of you anyway) on the road.”
His website, which has been inactive for some time, is now back online, and lists an array of performance dates spanning from early November until January 2020.
While there are no Canadian dates currently scheduled, the tour includes stops in various U.S. cities as well as some overseas, including dates in Italy, Israel and Slovakia.
In November 2017, C.K. confirmed that the stories of numerous women, alleging that he pleasured himself in front of them, were true.
“At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my d**k without asking first, which is also true,” he said in a statement to ET Canada. “But what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your d**k isn’t a question. It’s a predicament for them. The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly.”
