Louis C.K. makes unannounced appearance at NYC comedy club

He took the stage around 11 p.m. ET for a 15-minute set but did not address or mention the allegations, according to The New York Times.

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.

In November of previous year, five women came forward in the pages of The New York Times about how the comedian masturbated in front of them.

He told the paper that he was surprised C.K. reemerged so quickly. He, too, said he had no idea that Louis C.K. would return that night but that his material was "like, classic Louis, really really good". So far, only one guest has lodged a minor complaint, mostly because they wanted to know that C.K. was a guest in advance so they could decide if they wanted to see him or not.

'I had thought that the first time he'd go on would be in a more controlled environment.

"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'.

The result lifted Massimiliano Allegri's side to six points after their opening two fixtures while Lazio are still looking for their first points.

Dworman, who did not watch the show himself, said that he was told C.K. I have been remorseful of my actions.

The scandal led to the end of his production deal with FX Networks and the axing of a film he wrote directed and starred in, I Love You, Daddy, which contained echoes of his real-life misconduct.

At the time he also vowed to leave the spotlight, saying: "I will now step back and take a long time to listen".

Though some loyal fans expressed joy at his return, the majority of the response on social media to C.K.'s return appeared to be criticism from comedians, writers and journalists.

"I didn't think it was going to happen as soon as it did".
