Goodman and Wolov said they were shocked when he invited them to his hotel room during the US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Colorado, in 2002 and allegedly stripped naked and began to masturbate. They claim the actor asked them if he could take out his penis.
Comedian Abby Schachner says C.K. masturbated during a phone conversation with her in 2003. "I'm not going to answer that stuff, because they're rumors".
The New York Times article has since been published and features claims from five women - all female comedians - about alleged inappropriate behaviour by CK. The traumedy is produced under C.K.'s FX Productions-based Pig Newton banner and though C.K.is a credited executive producer, Notaro said the pair had not spoken in two years and that he is not involvement in the show.
The consequences of impending scandal revelations were obvious even before the Times story broke: The premiere of C.K.'s new black-and-white film, I Love you, Daddy, scheduled for Thursday night in NY, was canceled, abruptly and with no explanation, earlier on Thursday. "I remember thinking what a repulsive person I was being by responding the way that I did".
When she shut him down, "His face got red", she said, "and he told me he had issues".
Although outrageous behavior is de rigueur in the comedy world, the women felt C.K.'s behavior was abusive.
Add Louis C.K.to the list of Hollywood figures being accused of sexual misconduct. And let us not forget the allegations YEARS AGO that surfaced about Woody Allen (he did end up marrying his adopted daughter which is a 10 out of 10 on the creepy scale), seems C.K. may be standing on ice that is just as thin as "Woody" at this point.
In a story published Thursday, the Times identified four women by name, and a fifth who was anonymous, who recounted similar stories of C.K. crossing the line of sexual misconduct in their encounters with them dating back more than a decade. "They're rumors. That's all it is". The comedian also cancelled a planned appearance on "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert".
As rumours have swirled about alleged sexual misconduct in recent years, C.K. has denied any allegations of wrongdoing.
"And this guy didn't rape me, but he made a certain difficult decision to go on tour with him really hard", she continued.
