Louis C.K. has been slowly attempting a comeback since he was accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct in a 2017, allegations he admitted were true. Now, the disgraced comedian has surprise-released a new comedy special, Sincerely Louis C.K., available now via his website.

In a statement, C.K. implied that the release of the special is related to the ongoing global coronavirus pandemic, which has resulted in thousands of illnesses and deaths worldwide, in addition to millions physically distancing to slow the spread. 

"I feel like there are two kinds of people in this world. One kind needs to laugh when things get shitty," he said. "The other kind of people feel that it's important to put aside laughter in times of difficulty and give serious And painful things the respect and the silence due to them."

He concluded, "For those who need to laugh, I hope my new show will help. For those of you that can't laugh right now I just wish you all the peace you can grab in this shitty shitty time."

Regardless of which type of person you are, Sincerely Louis C.K. is available to purchase now via C.K.'s website.
