He took the stage around 11 p.m. ET for a 15-minute set but did not address or mention the allegations, according to The New York Times.

Dworman said the comedian was 'very relaxed, ' adding: 'It sounded just like he was trying to work out some new material, nearly like any time of the last 10 years he would come in at the beginning of a new act'.

Cable television network FX, a unit of 21st Century Fox, also severed its ties with CK and Time Warner's TBS network said it was suspending production on upcoming animated comedy The Cops, which CK co-created and was due to star in. The comedian performed as a surprise guest at the Comedy Cellar on Sunday night; his material was described as "typical" by a guest.

Mr. Dworman said Louis C.K.

Louis CK has returned to the stage for the first time since admitting to inappropriate sexual conduct. At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my d-k without asking first, which is also true. But he made a decision to just rip the Band-Aid off'. And I've tried to learn from them. It's not enough to call out bad behavior; people need to suffer consequences for it, because too often, the accuser's livelihood is threatened more so than the perpetrator.

Dworman said he received one complaint, from an audience member who "wished he had known in advance, so he could've decided whether to have been there".

In a statement shortly after the report was published, he expressed remorse and admitted: 'These stories are true'.

The release of C.K.'s feature film "I Love You, Daddy" - which he wrote, directed and starred in - was shelved.

"I didn't think it was going to happen as soon as it did", Dworman told the Times. These men, including men like C.K., who actually admitted that they did what they were accused of, go away for a few months and then make a triumphant return that is hailed as a win for justice and redemption by other men.
