Louis CK accused of sexual misconduct by five women

Forbes 2017 Ranking of the World's Highest Paid Comedians

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. The pair assumed the meeting would be "collegial".

THR has reached out to C.K. for comment. In the room, they said, the comedian asked them if he could take out his penis.

They thought it was a joke and laughed it off. "I think the line gets crossed when you take all your clothes off and start masturbating", Ms. Wolov told the Times.

Another woman, Abby Schachner, said she could hear Louis C.K. masturbating while she was on the phone with him in 2003.

"Louis is not going to answer any questions", Louis C.K.'s publicist Lewis Kay told the Times.

Kirkman has been talking about sexual harassment claims against Louis C.K. since 2015 when she recorded a podcast about an unnamed "Cosby-level" male comic, Vulture reports. David Arquette and Courteney Cox, exec producers on the show, confirmed the story.

"What happened to Rebecca on that set was very bad", Cox said in an email to the New York Times, adding that she felt "outrage and shock".

Roseanne has also tweeted about the allegations against Mr. C.K.

"This guy didn't rape me, but he made a certain difficult decision to go on tour with him really hard", she said in the now-deleted podcast.

"Sadly, I've come to learn that Louis C.K.'s victims are not only real", she said, "but many are actual friends of mine within the comedy community".

Tig Notaro, who has been the loudest voice regarding the allegations, spoke to the Times, confirming that a recent storyline about sexual assault on her show One Mississippi is indeed a fictionalized version of stories surrounding Louis, who is listed as an exec producer on the Amazon hit. He has since become one of the world's best-known comedians and produced and directed acclaimed TV shows, including the eponymous Louie, which has been on hiatus for a while, and the critically acclaimed Better Things.

Allegations of questionable sexual behavior have long dogged C.K and he said this summer that he and co-writer Vernon Chatman wanted to make a movie about beloved artists who are trailed by murmurs of scandal. In response, the comedian brushed off the rumors, telling The New York Times in September, "They're rumors, that's all that is". "If you actually participate in a rumor, you make it bigger and you make it real".
