He Forces Female Comics To Watch


[Gawker] Male comedians are weird. They j*rk off all the time, and then go on stage and talk about j*rking off all the time, for money and laughs. But our nation’s most hilarious stand-up comic and critically cherished sitcom auteur adds a thrilling twist to his onanistic escapades: He traps unsuspecting women in his hotel room and makes them stick around until he’s done.

We’ve heard from several sources that this shameless funnyman whips it out at the most inopportune moments, often at times when his female companions have expressed no interest in watching him go at it. A representative example: At the Aspen Comedy Festival a few years ago, he invited a female comedy duo back to his hotel room. The two ladies gladly joined him, and offered him some weed. He turned it down, but asked if it would be OK if he took his d*ck out.

Thinking he was joking (that’s exactly the kind of thing this guy would say), the women gave a facetious thumbs up. He wasn’t joking. When he actually started j*rking off in front of them, the ladies decided that wasn’t their bag and made for the exit. But the comedian stood in front of the door, blocking their way with his body, until he was done.

One of the ladies was so shaken by the episode that she complained to the festival’s organizers about the comedian’s behavior. She promptly received a call from his extremely powerful manager explaining that, if she valued her career, she would drop it. She valued her career.

When we contacted the victim to check out the story, she wrote back: “first of all, your facts are wrong. and secondly, i don’t want to be a part of this story. i’m sure you understand.” When we asked her which facts were wrong and if the incident ever happened at all, she wrote: “please don’t contact me about this matter anymore. Breast of luck to you.”

When we reached out to the extremely powerful manager, he put the comedian’s publicist in touch with us. After a lengthy and detailed phone conversation, the publicist agreed to ask the comedian about the incident. Weeks went by and we heard nothing. When we followed up with the publicist, he replied: “Sorry for delay but I never heard back from [him].”

If you’ve ever come across this j*rk-off (or if he’s ever come across you!), please let us know. He’s lucky no one’s called the cops yet.

BG Note: Condensed from Gawker. You can read the entire story here.

[In January 2015, a part-time comedian named “Jason” sent Louis C.K. an email asking him to “please stop sexually assaulting female comics.” Jason wound up having a brief phone conversation with Louis C.K.]

The subject of their phone call was sexual misconduct allegations made by the tipster’s friend against the comedian.

I talked to Jason after this phone call with C.K. He characterized their conversation as stilted and non-substantive. His interpretation was that C.K. was “sizing me up” to “find out what I had heard.” Jason left the conversation under the impression that the two would speak again soon. In the four or so months since, they haven’t.

I had asked Jason about the events that motivated him to email C.K. out of the blue in the first place. He was reluctant to go into much detail, but he said that two women he knew had been mistreated by him. He described one of the alleged incidents, which he said had happened sometime in the second half of 2014: A female friend of his told him that C.K. had come up to her at a comedy club, grabbed her by the back of the neck, leaned into her ear, and said “I’m going to fuck you.”

In March of 2012, we ran a blind item titled “Which Beloved Comedian Likes to Force Female Comics to Watch Him Jerk Off?,” which described an incident that had supposedly taken place in Aspen a few years prior involving “our nation’s most hilarious stand-up comic and critically cherished sitcom auteur” and two unnamed female comedians.

The item, which we couldn’t pin down at the time, was, as several commenters noted, a now well-circulated rumor about C.K.—although, in a confusing development, the comedian Doug Stanhope, a friend of Louis C.K., took to Facebook and claimed to be the culprit. (Several of Stanhope’s Facebook commenters replied that they thought it was about C.K.)

One of the commenters on our post affirmed that the whispers of C.K. taking his dick out whenever he pleases are well-known within the comedy world:

I have it on good authority (friends in the biz) that it’s Louis CK. I’ve heard stories about his propensity for whipping it out and jerking off in front of women at inappropriate times (i.e. dinner table, bar, etc.).

Another source relayed a story about a similar incident, at an afterparty at the Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal several years ago. The comedian allegedly took two women up to his room, but at some point they barged out, claiming he had started masturbating in front of them without warning.

Jason had heard the Aspen rumors, and said he reached out to us because he thought up-and-coming female comics should know “the reputation” of perhaps the most powerful stand-up comedian in the world.

We had no means of verifying Jason’s claims directly. He said the women he knew had told him they wouldn’t come forward, citing C.K.’s reputation and power in the comedy world. The two members of the comedy duo who were supposedly subjected to the Aspen jerk-off incident wanted nothing to do with the story then, and did not respond for comment when contacted before the publication of this post.

We’ve reached out to C.K.’s rep about these allegations and are awaiting word back.

    MAN… I’m a long-time, huge fan of CK. I really don’t want this to be true. I’ll lose all respect for him.

  2. Rofl my Wofl says

    I’m glad he’s been exposed, no pun intended. There are comedy bits by Louis that are absolutely hilarious, some of the best comedy I’ve ever watched in my life, hands down, delivered by a master. Then there’s so much questionable material that has really led me to believe this guy’s a serious perv with mental issues, but meanwhile his hardcore fans defend it as “comedy.”

    • laal says

      Yes, he is very funny, but there is a lot of crossing the line going on! Sometimes it feels very uncomfortable and not like comedy at all!

      Because while what he’s talking about may be serious subjects, the delivery is still hilarious. It was George Carlin that said even rape jokes can be funny. And then he proved it.

    I didn’t see this blind item before, but when I saw “comic,” & “jerking off,” I KNEW it had to be Louis C.K.! I’m a huge fan of his and always took his jokes about masterbation for what they were worth,because he came up with a lot of scenarios that a lot of men do, but don’t talk about. But, eww! : ( I’m disappointed.

  5. rudy says


    Louis you are exposed!! So to speak.
    You fcking pervert.

    Making jokes about CHILD ABUSE and sexually abusive to fellow comics.
    This has got to stop.

    Lous CK has now crossed that line.
    YOu laugh at his jokes, you are also laughing at all his victims.
    How the hell do we know whether or not he IS a child abuser?
    Maybe no, maybe so. Either way the truth will out.

    Take your fern and go home Louis.

  6. ozdxumel says

    is this being brought up again because of his recent joke about pedophiles on SNL?

  7. justguessinginbrooklyn says

    It’s weird to me that people are so intimidated by this “powerful” guy since I have no idea who he is.

  8. fufufrankie says

    I am not shocked at these claims given his recent “comedy” bit on SNL about molesting kids and how it must something “really good” for the molester to risk so much that he will continue to do it.

    Louis CK’s routine is truly vile “humor”. I can laugh at immature things but I DO NOT find jokes about molesting children to be funny at all. He’s a piece of filth as far as I’m concerned. Hopefully he will be outted by the victims a lot sooner than Bill Cosby was.

    • WhoDatGirl says

      I thought of him when I saw the pic and thought back to that same bit on the SNL show. I was laughing at his jokes, and then he came in with pedophilia and the laughter stopped (for me, at least). That is a subject that should never be tinged with humor because there’s nothing funny about it. I thought then that there was something sinister about someone who could make a joke out of pedophilia. I hope that eventually the truth comes out in a big way and he gets shut down and driven out. As for…

  9. PatioPrincess says

    Ew. Why aren’t the police involved? What a creep. I never thought he was funny, just a fugly creep.

  10. kk_x says

    This is so weird to me. I thought tons of female comedians respected and loved him (Mindy Kaling for example)

  11. Nataliexyz says

    Can’t tell you how disappointing this is. Has anyone talked to his ex-wife? She may have some insight. I’ve been a fan of Louie for a long time. He needs to address this and apologize. I can’t respect him for what now looks like “pretend feminism” only to find out he’s just another a** who treats women as objects for his amusement. Just very, very disappointing.

  12. dslg47 says

    I’m honestly not surprised it’s him, especially after his recent SNL bit where his opening jokes were about child molesters and how hard their lives must be and how good it must feel to actually molest a child. Disgusting.

  13. JenniferNorth says

    This bums me out if this is true. Key words: IF THIS IS TRUE. I am currently listening to Sarah Silverman’s book “Bedwetter” and she spent years hanging out with Louis before they were famous and considers him one of her best friends. I have to think she is the type that would call him out on bullshit behavior or even completely distance herself from a dick. Ugh. This makes me sad.

    • WhoDatGirl says

      Maybe she just didn’t know this side of him because he didn’t want to whip out his d*ck for her

  14. beccablue says

    Louis C.K, it’s not too late for you. I believe in you! You don’t have to be that kind of person. You can get help, you can stare your issues in the face. You can apologize to those women (especially for having your manager threaten them). You can choose to be good. You can humble yourself and work hard to become a better human. You can set a good example for the men who look up to you and will most likely feel inclined to defend you. This is my first post on this site. I made an account just…

  15. kspeedian says

    PS- This is super disappointing, btw. When his comic career first took off I saw him at my local comedy club (a TRUE comedy club with maybe 75 tables) and though he came off as insanely depressed and exhausted, he was still hilarious at the same time (how he manages that, I can’t understand lol) as his fame has grown, I’ve stayed a fan. Sad thing is, this doesn’t even sound like a case of getting super famous and thinking you can do whatever you want… It seems like he did this long before…
