NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — Comedian and actor Louis C.K. returned to the stage on Sunday night, the first time since he admitted to sexual misconduct against female colleagues in the comedy world.
According to the New York Times, Louis C.K. made an unannounced appearance at the storied Comedy Cellar in Manhattan. He performed 15 minute set of what club owner Noam Dworman described to the Times as “typical Louis C.K. stuff.”
“It sounded just like he was trying to work out some new material, almost like any time of the last 10 years he would come in at the beginning of a new act,” Dworman told the newspaper.
Dworman told the Times that the sold-out crowd of about 115 greeted him warmly with a standing ovation before he started his performance. However, Dworman added that one patron later contacted the club to object to Louis C.K.s surprise appearance.
“I understand that some people will be upset with me. I care about my customers very much. Every complaint goes through me like a knife. And I care about doing the right thing,” Dworman told the Times.
Louis C.K., whose real name is Louis A. Székely, was the subject of allegations of inappropriate conduct from five women last November. However, unlike many of the other men who have been similarly accused, he admitted to his misconduct and apologized for his behavior. The revelations led to the end of a production deal with FX Networks and the cancellation of “I Love You, Daddy,” a film he had written, directed, and starred in.
Since November, he as remained out of the public limelight.
