”When he performs at the Comedy Cellar and people get all irate, if nothing else, care about his daughters,” Janeane Garofalo said about Louis CK, who she insists has ”been my friend since 1985, and I think he has suffered.”
Greenwich Village comedy club Comedy Cellar once again found itself the subject of criticism after hosting a fundraiser for sexual violence and domestic assault prevention organizations Raliance and No More, two days after another surprise appearance from Louis C.K.
"I need to make jokes because I need an income," Louis CK said at Monday night's Comedy Cellar show, his first being listed on the bill in advance since his "return" to stand-up comedy after admitting to sexual misconduct.
”I’m not saying everyone should embrace Louis C.K. again,” Sarah Silverman told Howard Stern. ”I believe he has remorse. I just want him to talk about it on stage. He’s going to have to find his way or not find his way.”

The applause had barely died down at Comedy Cellar, where Louis C.K. had done a surprise performance earlier the same week, when Cellar regular and Jim Gaffigan tourmate Ted Alexandro asked the crowd, "what, does a guy have to be convicted of sexual assault to get an extended ovation?"
