Comedian Louis CK accused of pattern of sexual misconduct

Chicago comedy duo Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov described how, after their big-break performance at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Colo., in 2002, C.K. invited them to hang out in his hotel room for a nightcap. Courteney Cox and David Arquette confirmed they were notified of one alleged incident - an actress on a show they were producing claimed C.K. asked if he could masturbate in front of her.

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

Another comedian, Abby Schachner, said that she called Louis C.K.in 2003 to invite him to one of her shows.

In the New York Times story, five women relayed stories of C.K.'s behavior and desire to masturbate in from of him. The film had already courted controversy due to its content, in part because it featured a scene in which a character pretends to masturbate in front of people.

The New York premiere of Louis C.K.'s upcoming film, I Love You, Daddy, has been canceled at the Paris Theatre on Friday. "I remember thinking what a repulsive person I was being by responding the way that I did". "I definitely wasn't encouraging it", she told the Times. "I Love You, Daddy" first premiered at Toronto International Film Festival and garnered criticism for its allusions to Mr. Allen, who has faced sexual abuse allegations from his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, and criticism for marrying ex-girlfriend Mia Farrow's adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn.

The comic also was slated to appear on CBS' "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" on Thursday, but that appearance was shelved too, CBS said.

What do you think the Louis C.K. story will be about?

"They're rumors, that's all that is", he said in a September interview, explaining he preferred to stay silent rather than address the allegations.

Alongside the accounts of three other women, these accusations paint a picture of a powerful man who was fully aware that he was a compulsive sexual harasser, routinely apologized for it, and yet failed to curb his behavior.

"And this guy didn't rape me, but he made a certain difficult decision to go on tour with him really hard", she continued.

The Times story comes four weeks after the paper published an exposé on movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, detailing decades of allegations of sexual harassment and assault from multiple women.
