Louis C.K.’s comeback is going stronger than expected. The comic and former TV god, who admitted to multiple accusations of sexual misconduct over four years ago, has seen his stand-up shows sell out. During “Saturday Night Live”, he used a time slot for a new ad plugging his stand-up special.
Louis C.K. even got a Grammy nomination, which made some wonder if “cancel culture” is even a real thing. Now he’s taking yet another step back to normalcy. He’s hawking a new stand-up special.
Louis appeared across TV screens all over the country Saturday while ‘SNL’ was airing. The promo showcased his latest offering, ‘Sorry,’ which captures his appearance at Madison Square Garden on August 14 of this year. The ad ran at about the 10-minute mark into the broadcast.
It’s unclear where and when he filmed this. But it’s no secret that the guy’s been touring all over the country these past several months. The Daily Beast described the very show that was immortalized and is now for sale.
“The comedian’s new material is not for the faint of heart. It has everything. “Child f*cker” jokes that include a very involved journey about being in possession of a little girl’s underwear, more pedophilia jokes with an emphasis on the Boy Scouts of America, COVID-19 jokes, jokes about staring into the human asshole, 9/11 jokes, gay jokes, Jew jokes, cancer jokes, a heavy helping of transgender jokes, and a sprinkling of additional race jokes. And tons of sex.”
Of course, ‘SNL’ probably has no say over the placement of the ad as there’s a whole other department handling that. Cancel culture is again being dissected. C.K. was one of many swept up in the #MeToo movement, getting accused by a handful of women of either masturbating in front of or on the phone with them. Louis disappeared for a while, but now he’s back.
