Comedian Louis CK accused of sexual misconduct by five women

Comedian Louis CK accused of sexual misconduct by five women

The gala celebrating it was to take place at New York's Paris Theatre. A third woman said that the comedian asked if he could masturbate in front of her, but she declined. Corry, who'd been working on a pilot with Louis C.K., was asked to make the bad choice of dropping the incident, or risk being cast as the cause of a production shutdown. She said no, and C.K. told her he "had issues", she told the Times.

That echoes recent high-profile revelations about Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein and actor Kevin Spacey, both of whom stand accused of engaging in years of sexual misconduct that many inside the industry were aware of but said nothing about.

Roseanne has also tweeted about the allegations against Mr. C.K. The bars were closed and they wanted to celebrate.

They thought it was a joke and laughed it off.

Corry reported that in 2015, she also received an apology from the comedian - but that his wasn't an accurate account of the incident.

She had said that Arau and producers had surprised her with a nude scene that she hadn't agreed to in advance. She told the Times she sat in the comedian's office, with colleagues outside the door, as he masturbated. And yet another woman charged that she could hear the comedian masturbating while she spoke on the phone with him during an alleged incident in 2003. "She did nothing wrong by having associated with him".

"I do not have firsthand knowledge, though have heard women make these allegations", she later added.

Comedian Rebecca Corry also told The Times that in 2005 she worked with Louis C.K. on a pilot for a television show, and at one point the comedian asked her if he could masturbate in front of her. David Arquette and Courteney Cox, exec producers on the show, confirmed the story. Notaro claims she is in support of the women who have come forward about Louis C.K. and any who may still need time to come forward. She has since tried to distance herself after learning many of her friends in the comedy community were allegedly harassed by C.K., telling the Times she feels "trapped" by the relationship.

In September, CK was asked about rumours of sexual misconduct by the NY Times at the Toronto film festival, which he dismissed as simply "rumours". Becky denied that he threatened the women.

Already, the allegations have had tangible effects.

While promoting his upcoming film 'I Love You, Daddy, ' star, writer, and director Louis C.K. was asked about the allegations of sexual misconduct that have followed him for years. "As a result, we are giving careful consideration to the timing and release of the film and continuing to review the situation".

Vulture has reached out to FX, which works with C.K. on his show Louie, for comment.
