Louis CK is a great comedian, but aside from having a booming stand-up career and hit TV show is a looming weird alleged fetish that is slowly becoming more widely known from behind the scenes. Granted, it’s a small shadow in the light of the Cosby scandal, but still pretty awful if it’s true which remains to be seen. However, a lot of comedians in the circuit have said it is.
Jen Kirkman apparently was asked if she’d like to go on tour with CK after his popularity had blown up due to his Louie show on FX. But Louie’s acceptance in her joining him was dependant on whether or not she would agree to watch CK masturbate. Here’s what she said on her podcast episode “Bitch, we’re all Madonna” from her I Seem Fun podcast. Granted, she doesn’t say Louis CK’s name but it’s certainly consistent with the word around other campfires.
And then I had another guy who is a very famous comic. He is probably at Cosby level at this point. He is lauded as a genius. He is basically a French filmmaker at this point. You know, new material every year. He’s a known perv. And there’s a lockdown on talking about him. His guy friends are standing by him, and you cannot say a bad thing about him. And I’ve been told by people “Well then say it then. Say it if it’s true.” If I say it, my career is over. My manager and my agent have told me that. They didn’t threaten it. They just said to me “You know what Jen, it’s not worth it because you’ll be torn apart. Look at the Cosby women.” And this guy didn’t rape me, but he made a certain difficult decision to go on tour with him really hard. Because I knew if I did, I’d be getting more of the same weird treatment I’d been getting from him. And it was really fucked up, and this person was married. So it was not good, and so I hold a lot of resentment.
The podcast episode which has vanished from the internet, was thankfully transcribed but the story doesn’t end there. Apparently someone had actually personally emailed CK asking him to please stop sexually assaulting female comics. And CK actually emailed back.

As Gawker had reported, the person who originally emailed CK did in fact talk to him, but said the conversation felt more like CK was sizing him up to find out how much he actually knew. But what made the guy (who has remained nameless) decide to email CK in the first place? He’s apparently in the stand-up comedy circle and knows of three women that underwent CK’s alleged forceful fetish. One allegedly involving CK forcing a woman against a car and another incident where he invited two female comedians up to his hotel room at the Aspen Comedy Festival. Apparently Doug Stanhope tried to take the fall on his facebook saying that the following story was in fact about him, but another commentor on Stanhope’s post said that they knew it was 100% Louis CK, which goes with Jen Kirkman’s statement of “His guy friends are standing by him.”
Here is one of the two stories that was told by the guy who emailed CK.
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 dick 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 jerking 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.
Most of the women involved haven’t come forward, considering they are usually comedians trying to make a positive name for themselves. It’d be even harder to break through once you speak out against one of the most popular comedians in the world. What’s funny is I myself was at a comedy show just last month when a comedian let it slip about CK’s alleged fetish forcing women to watch him masturbate. He didn’t go into detail but said “You guys don’t know about this??”
