New York Times Reports on Louis CK's History of "Sexual Misconduct"

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

Comedian-filmmaker Louis C.K., known for his edgy, sex-seeped comedy, now is the latest Hollywood figure accused of sexual misconduct: Five women told The New York Times he masturbated in front of them or tried to, without their consent.

Louis C.K. was contacted by the Times but declined to address the allegations. HuffPost has reached out to Kay for comment and will update this post accordingly.

In 2002, a Chicago comedy duo, Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov, landed their big break: a chance to perform at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Colo. But they say Louis immediately asked if he could take out his penis as soon as they sat down.

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. Becky, who also manages a stable of prominent comedians like Amy Poehler and Kevin Hart, denied threatening any of the women. Performer Abby Schachner tells the Times she overheard him masturbating while talking to her on the phone.

MS comedian Tig Notaro, whose first comedy album was released by Louis C.K., said she heard of his reputation from other women and suggested it's not exactly a secret in the comedy world.

Courteney Cox and David Arquette who were executive producers on a pilot in 2005 with Louis shared that they knew what happened to Rebecca Cory and were shocked that such unwarranted behavior had occurred. A coworker at the time confirmed her story.

"What happened to Rebecca on that set was terrible", Cox said in an email to the outlet.

You can find all these fearless women's stories HERE. Louis C.K.'s appearance on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" the same night was also canned. Louis C.K. was a writer and producer for the show at the time.

When she shut him down, "His face got red", she said, "and he told me he had issues". "I remember thinking what a repulsive person I was being by responding the way that I did". "He abused his power". Corry told the Times that the way he misremembered the incident made her think he had a longer history of misconduct.

The Orchard has canceled Thursday's NY premiere of Louis C.K.'s controversial new film "I Love You, Daddy". In the film, the comedian plays a father whose teenage daughter (Chloe Grace Moretz) seemingly becomes the romantic interest of a much older man.
