Comedian Louis CK accused of pattern of sexual misconduct

Comedians Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov say C.K. invited them to his hotel room for a nightcap after their performance at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen in 2002.

"He proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating", Goodman said.

Another woman, Abby Schachner, said she could hear Louis C.K. masturbating while she was on the phone with him in 2003.

In a statement to the Times, C.K.'s publicist Lewis Kay said the comedian would not answer any questions about the allegations.

The women, in a bombshell New York Times story, describe a pattern of behavior that included C.K. masturbating in front of them or asking them to watch him do so.

And in 2005, comedian Rebecca Corry was working on a TV pilot with C.K. when he asked if he could masturbate in front of her, she alleged.

In "I Love You, Daddy", written and directed by Mr. C.K., the comedian plays a writer-producer who tries to stop his 17-year-old daughter from having a relationship with a 68-year-old director.

The New York premiere of Louis C.K.'s upcoming film, I Love You, Daddy, has been canceled at the Paris Theatre on Friday.

The Hollywood Reporter claimed Thursday that a coming New York Times story on the comedian was about to break and the premiere was canceled in case it was damaging. "I remember thinking what a repulsive person I was being by responding the way that I did". Rebecca says she opted to keep things going.

"Last time I talked to you ended in a sordid fashion".

"Well, you can't touch stuff like that", C.K. told Vulture previous year.

After telling the The Daily Beast that C.K. should "handle" the rumors leveled against him, Notaro told THR they explored sexual assault in the show because, "We wanted to show that you can be assaulted without even being touched". He also abruptly canceled an appearance to promote the film on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.

Vulture has reached out to FX, which works with C.K. on his show Louie, for comment.

Although outrageous behavior is de rigueur in the comedy world, the women felt C.K.'s behavior was abusive.

Louis C.K is the latest high-profile entertainment figure to be publicly accused of sexual misconduct. "They're rumors. That's all it is". But Corry said that C.K. apologized for shoving her in a bathroom, not allegedly masturbating in front of her, causing her to think there have been other incident of misconduct. The four women who used their names in the piece were doing so for the first time.
