Louis CK hit with multiple sexual misconduct claims

Louis CK's Movie Premiere Canceled Ahead of Reported New York Times Story

Chicago comedy duo Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov, comedians Rebecca Corry, Abby Schachner and C.K. collaborator and onetime friend Tig Notaro all spoke to the Times for the story. One said C.K. masturbated in front of her, a second said he did so while on the phone with her and the third said she declined when asked to masturbate in front of her.

"He proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating", Goodman said.

"In light of the allegations concerning Louis C.K. referenced in today's New York Times, we are canceling tonight's premiere of I Love You, Daddy".

Louis C.K.'s film I Love You, Daddy which was set to premiere today in NY has been suddenly cancelled, in addition to an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Thursday night's NY premiere for the film was scrapped at the last minute, reported Deadline, as rumours of the Times expose began to swirl.

"I think the big piece of why I said yes was because of the culture", she continued.


Corry also says the details in his apology were wrong, that he thought he had shoved her into a bathroom. The comedian's routine often included masturbation jokes, and in 2007, he told a radio show a story about exposing his genitals to an old man in public when he was younger, adding, "I don't know why".

The women's allegations called into question whether C.K.'s comedic schtick - he's known for his candor about his sexual hang-ups and his frequent talk about masturbation in his act - has served as a longtime cover for real misconduct. "They're rumors. That's all it is". Since catching wind of the forthcoming report, the actor-director has dropped out from an appearance on Thursday's Late Night with Stephen Colbert, having his spot filled by Shameless star William H. Macy.

Roseanne Barr once claimed in an interview that Louis C.K. has exposed himself to female writers and fellow comics.

Allegations of questionable sexual behavior have long dogged C.K and he said this summer that he and co-writer Vernon Chatman wanted to make a movie about beloved artists who are trailed by murmurs of scandal. A fifth woman anonymously accused the comedian of masturbating in front of her, which she said she allowed at the time because of the comedy world's lewd culture.

"And this guy didn't rape me, but he made a certain difficult decision to go on tour with him really hard", she continued.
