Louis C.K. continues to attempt a comeback after confessing to numerous sexual misconduct allegations. Now, his most recent set from Governor's in New York has emerged online, and it's full of slurs and ill-advised takes on modern society.

The set, which was leaked online and can be heard below, is full of the familiar "bits" C.K. has been working out at the Comedy Cellar, including talk about losing $35 million USD in one year. Then he decided to go in on some of society's more disadvantaged people:

In a lengthy rant, he somehow went in on both nonbinary youth and the survivors of the Parkland school shooting at the same time:

I'm a little disappointed in the younger generation, honestly. Because I'm 51 years old, and when I was like 18 to my 20s, we were idiots. We were getting high, doing fucking mushrooms and shit, and older people were like, "You gotta get your shit together," and we were like, "Eh, fuck you!" And I was kind of excited to be in my 50s and see people in their 20s and be like, "They're crazy! These kids are nuts!" But they're not. They're fucking neeeeh. They're just boring, fucking telling, "You shouldn't say that!" What are you, an old lady? What the fuck are you doing? "Neeeeh, that's not appropriate!" Fuck you, you're a child! … They're like royalty. They tell you what to call them: "You should address me as 'they/them' because I identify as gender-neutral." Okay. You should address me as "there" because I identify as a location, and the location is your mother's cunt … They testify in front of Congress, these kids? What the fuck? What are you doing? You're young, you should be crazy, you should be unhinged! Not in a suit saying "I'm here to tell you…" Fuck you, you're not interesting cause you went to a high school where kids got shot. Why does that mean I have to listen to you? How does that make you interesting? You didn't get shot, you pushed some fat kid in the way, and now I gotta listen to you talking?

The set also includes a lengthy defence of the word "retarded." If you want to try to stomach it, you can listen here:

As could be expected, the set hasn't entirely gone over too well with the comedy community. Read some reactions to the leaked audio below.
