Louis CK is “sorry” – but he’s not this Pardon.
The disgraced comedian performed at New York’s Hulu Theater in Madison Square Garden on Friday and joked about everything but his masturbation scandal.
While the former “Louie” star performed in front of a huge sign reading “SORRY”, he failed to acknowledge the sexual misconduct scandal that has plagued him since 2017.
Instead, CK joked about obsessing over the death toll from COVID, 9/11, and pedofiles.

“I thought some of the jokes were a bit rude and over the top, but overall it was a good show,” one participant told Page Six who asked to remain anonymous.
Despite the mixed jokes, the crowd was overjoyed to see CK back on stage.
“People gave him a standing ovation when he came out and when he left,” our source added. “His set was hot but very funny. “
Another participant, Ron Michelli, told Page Six that they had to lock their phones – in the manner of Pete Davidson’s stand-up shows – in Yondr pouches at the start of the show to prevent photos and recordings. Michelli also agreed that some of CK’s jokes went a little over the line.

“Some went a little deeper than necessary but still funny,” Michelli, 30, told us. “His set seemed to be on the shorter side. “
CK’s representative did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
CK announced its nationwide tour earlier this month in a bizarre email that promised “rude jokes and stories.” The tour announcement came several years – and a few local shows – after the comics’ shocking sexual misconduct scandal, in which he confirmed claims he had masturbated in front of several women without their consent.

“These stories are true,” CK said in a statement at the time. “At the time I thought to myself that what I was doing was right because I never showed my dk to a woman without asking first, which is also true. “

He continued, “But what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to watch your dk isn’t a question. It is a difficult situation for them. The power I had over these women was that they admired me. And I have exercised this power irresponsibly.
