Premiere for Louis CK's 'I Love You, Daddy' is canceled

"In light of the allegations concerning Louis C.K. referenced in today's New York Times", the Orchard said in a statement, "we are cancelling tonight's premiere of I Love You, Daddy". As soon as they sat down, the women said, Louis C.K. asked if he could take his penis out of his trousers.

A Chicago comedy duo, Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov, allege they were invited to Louis C.K.'s hotel room for a nightcap during a 2002 Colorado comedy festival. Performer Abby Schachner tells the Times she overheard him masturbating while talking to her on the phone.

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.

Well, according to a huge New York Times article, various comedy personalities and celebrities have known of Louis C.K.'s antics for some time, but have stayed silent because of the potential damage that feared to their careers.

And in 2005, comedian Rebecca Corry was working on a TV pilot with C.K. when he asked if he could masturbate in front of her, she alleged.

In "I Love You, Daddy", written and directed by Mr. C.K., the comedian plays a writer-producer who tries to stop his 17-year-old daughter from having a relationship with a 68-year-old director. The premiere of the film, scheduled to take place on Thursday, has been cancelled, as has Louis C.K.'s scheduled appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.

Yet another Hollywood figure is being accused by multiple women in a New York Times exposé. But they say Louis immediately asked if he could take out his penis as soon as they sat down.

In August comic Tig Notaro talked to the Daily Beast about C.K., who serves as executive producer of her Amazon series, "One Mississippi".

In an interview with the Times in September, C.K. was asked about sexual misconduct rumors surrounding him. It was enough to make her believe C.K. was confusing her with yet another woman he had assaulted. "Shameless" star William H. Macy will be the lead guest star on the episode instead.


"'I used to misread people back then.'"
"I'm not going to answer to that stuff, because they're rumors", C.K. initially told the paper.

Vulture has reached out to FX, which works with C.K. on his show Louie, for comment.
