Louis CK Not Laughing About Sexual Accusations

Comedian Louis CK accused of sexual misconduct by five women

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

In the first of several allegations against the Louie star, comedians Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov told the newspaper that C.K. allegedly invited them back to his hotel room following their appearance at a comedy festival in Colorado in 2002. Courteney Cox and David Arquette confirmed they were notified of one alleged incident - an actress on a show they were producing claimed C.K. asked if he could masturbate in front of her. "What happened to Rebecca on that set was very bad", Cox wrote of the incident in an email, expressing her reaction of "outrage and shock".

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.

In "I Love You, Daddy", written and directed by Mr. C.K., the comedian plays a writer-producer who tries to stop his 17-year-old daughter from having a relationship with a 68-year-old director.

Rumors of alleged inappropriate behavior involving Louis C.K. have been gossiped about for years.

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

Last year, on the topic of misconduct rumours, he told Vulture: "I don't care about that". She described an alleged encounter that took place in the late '90s while she was working in production at "The Chris Rock Show".

A spokesman for Louis C.K. didn't return immediate messages for comment. "Shameless" star William H. Macy will be replacing him.

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.

Fellow comic Tig Notato has also spoken out about C.K.

"They're rumors, that's all that is", he said.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Notaro said she wanted to make clear in the episode that "you can be assaulted without even being touched". "He knew it was going to make him look like a good guy, supporting a woman", she said, adding that she learned of his reputation only after selling One Mississippi to Amazon. That Oct. 5 story, and another on Weinstein in The New Yorker a week later, set off a cascade of allegations of sexual misdeeds against Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and other Hollywood figures that continues.
