Louis C.K. has been out of the spotlight since admitting to sexual misconduct allegations last fall, but he returned to the stage for an unannounced set at the Comedy Cellar in New York last night (August 27).
The comedy club owner Noam Dworman told the New York Times that C.K.'s set was filled with "typical Louis C.K. stuff," and that he didn't mention the scandal or the #MeToo movement in his material.
Dworman also said that the audience gave C.K. a standing ovation before his set, and that only one patron complained, saying that he "wished he had known in advance, so he could've decided whether to have been there."
Mo Amer, another comic on the bill, told the Times that C.K.'s set was "like, classic Louis, really, really good."
His return to the stage isn't sitting well with many people on Twitter, though.

Five women came forward last November, publicly sharing their personal experiences with the comedian, who had long been rumoured to masturbate in front of women.

After admitting to such behaviour, his film I Love You, Daddy was pulled from release, Netflix cancelled an upcoming special and Louie network FX severed ties with him.
