Comedian Louis C.K., whose career derailed after he was accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women in 2017, is making a return to stand-up comedy in a nationwide tour beginning next week, he announced on his website on Wednesday.
Announced on Wednesday, C.K. has shows in 30 cities, including New York, Chicago, Detroit, San Diego, Philadelphia, Boston and more. His first stand-up show is set for the Hulu Theatre at Madison Square Garden on August 13, with a follow-up show the next night. The tour ends at the Orpheum Theater in Boston on December 11.
In 2017, C.K. was accused by multiple women of masturbating in front of them. In a report by the New York Times, comedians Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov alleged that C.K. invited them to his hotel room during the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Colo., in 2002 and stripped naked and began to masturbate. Comedian Rebecca Corry also told the Times that while she was working with C.K. on a TV pilot in 2005, he allegedly asked her if he could go to her dressing room and masturbate while she watched.
