Louis C.K. gets mixed reaction in surprise performance at New York City’s Comedy Cellar

Louis C.K.’s second appearance in as many months at a New York City Comedy Cellar went off to mixed results.

The 51-year-old comedian on Sunday got a ‘warm greeting’ from some in the crowd, a source told The Hollywood Reporter, while another insider told Page Six that ‘a few women walked out’ when the controversial performer got onstage.

It’s his second public appearance since he was accused, and later admitted to, accusations from five women of sexual misconduct last year.

The insider told Page Six that Louis C.K. ‘went on around midnight’ and came off as ‘a little arrogant’ as he talked to the audience, making no mention of the scandal that’s put the brakes on his career, as he was dumped from numerous projects – including a FX Networks deal and a Netflix special – while his film I Love You Daddy was shelved in the wake of his admission. 

‘He made some comment like, “I’ve been off for a while, cause everyone needs a break,”‘ the source said.

An insider told THR that while two people requested refunds and ‘left politely’ when Louis C.K. hit the stage, ‘the crowd was very enthusiastic’ in general.

‘The reception this time was more enthusiastic,’ the source said. ‘His set was better all-around.’

The venue adopted a new policy following push-back from Louis C.K.’s appearance there late last month; according to the outlet, a statement on the ticket reads: ‘If an unannounced appearance is not your cup of tea, you are free to leave (unobtrusively please) no questions asked, your check on the house.’

In audio published by THR, the comic was heard telling the audience, ‘You’ve been very kind … thank you very, very much.’
