Going to become a sex offender so that people say the only acceptable job for me to get is stand-up comedian.

If there is a perfect moral position, it's definitely somewhere in-between what I see to be the two extremes of opinion.

Just actually think this statement through, fucking Aristotle over here.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure wanking in front of unwilling women is a crime. You should try it and find out to make certain though.

I saw some people talking about audience members not walking out - for those of you who haven't been to the Comedy Cellar, that's really not an option. You pay once the show is up, and there's no way the staff will let you out without paying. I suppose you could pay and leave mid-set, but I don't know if that would be feasible - not to mention the social pressure of getting up and leaving a very closely-packed, relatively small venue. It's awkward enough going for a piss.

So not only do you get an unexpected wankbeast, you're also held captive? Doesn't sound like he's learned a thing.

Hadley Freeman Guardian piece from last year after the death of Chuck Berry.

There's also a video of him, floating around porn websites, farting on a woman's face in a hotel.

I can’t be bothered to find the quote quoted in this quote but it was about not being able to leave the comedy cellar without paying. The owner has actually said anyone is free to leave without paying if Louis shows up, and their food/drinks will be on the house.

As has been discussed, yes, comedians do unannounced warm up sets, usually when working out new material for a tour. That isn't what is happening, its someone trying to get back on stage after being publicly disgraced to pick up where he left off like nothing ever happened. The situation is a bit different.

I'm not defending him, but I suspect he's just reverting to previous routines, or at most testing the water rather than enacting some dastardly scheme.

My gut instinct - 18% success rate - is that he either doesn't care, or that he hasn't fully comprehended what he's done that's so wrong. Which would be consistent with the man who would commit the acts in the first place. (Perhaps taking things slightly out of context, but consider his blasé comment at the start of his recent unannounced gig, and his apparently carefree reaction in the TMZ video.)

Yeah, I'd agree with that. I suspect he still thinks it's more of an embarrassment for him than a traumatising event for the women. I certainly don't get the impression he's taken any of this on board or changed his ways.

And I also don't like the idea of him just appearing as a surprise act. Imagine if you're a sexual assault survivor who's in the front row and he comes on (fnarr etc). How are you gonna feel?

What they should do, if they have to have him up at all, is say CK's going to perform his set once everyone has paid up, and that if anyone wants to leave early "because they're going to miss their train" or something, they're welcome to go now.

That's what I mean though, he doesn't think he did anything that bad and hes now just trying to carry on as if nothing had happened, its all blown over now, he can get back to normal. No listening, no learning, no change, just a shitty bloke trying to pick up where he left off after his little break.

What jobs are acceptable for him to do? how would you like to ensure he doesn't do jobs you don't want him doing?

"crimes" ffs

One where he doesnt get lavished with love, praise and lots and lots of money? One where he's not able to act out his wankbeast fantasies? One where he's not free to come and go as pleases to the same places where he sexually assaulted women? One where he doesn't have idiots defending his shitty behaviour because he can tell a joke?

The only way this can be resolved is if you can draw up a list of all the valid careers Louis CK allowed to have. Otherwise this argument will go back and forth forever.

This thread will live as long as Louis keeps making appearances, seeing as they will seemingly all be documented and pored over in more granular detail than any live appearance he's had before. Way to promote the wankbeast!

I'd be happy if he'd taken a two year break. I think many, fans or not, would think that was about right. Then he could be a comedian forever after that.

OK then, let's talk logistics.

-How are you going to ensure he doesn't ever have a job where he's valued, praised or otherwise able to find satisfaction?
-What's the cut-off point in terms of wages he's allowed to earn, and what's the basis for
-It's not like the things he was getting up to were inherently confined to comedy, so how are you going to ensure that he can't get up to any sexual deviancy in his new job?

If you're going to come out with these grand, broad statements about what he should and shouldn't be allowed to do, you need to show some sense of having thought things through, otherwise your comments are so vague as to essentially be meaningless beyond pointing out that you're angry. Are you also one of those that gets annoyed when perpetrators of serious crimes are allowed to cash in their winning lottery tickets?

I'm not going to ensure anything, the audience is going to decide. If you're happy giving your money to a person like that so they can continue to live their privileged lifestyle, go right ahead. I'd rather not give my money to someone like that.

Well done for focusing on all the wrong details.

-How are you going to ensure he doesn't ever have a job where he's valued, praised or otherwise able to find satisfaction?

I'm not. I'm talking about him going back to the job where he abused women, got away with it, threatened people or had others do it on his behalf, barely apologised, showed no remorse and waltzed right back in. If that's the kind of person you want to lavish with love and praise and give lots of money to, go for it.

Quote
-What's the cut-off point in terms of wages he's allowed to earn, and what's the basis for

Again, no idea what your imaginary cut off point is, I never mentioned any specific kind of money or that he shouldnt be allowed to earn anything. Being excessively rewarded and allowing him to carry on where he left off in the same environment he committed some of his abuses feels like people don't care about his actions is my point. And they mostly don't. He can try and earn whatever he likes, as he is trying to do, and again, the audience will decide. Some people are fine with it and will support him, I'm not because he's not the kind of person I want to support, make rich and help live a luxury lifestyle.

-It's not like the things he was getting up to were inherently confined to comedy, so how are you going to ensure that he can't get up to any sexual deviancy in his new job?


Couldn't give a fuck, he may be a wankbeast in a new job, he may not. The point is that he committed some offenses in comedy clubs. He made women uncomfortable and afraid to go to those clubs. Women had to turn down touring with him because of his behaviour. So I don't think it's appropriate he can walk back into those clubs to carry on where he left off with no apology, no sign of remorse or guilt.

Better? Again, couldnt give a fuck about your other point missing and irrelevant to the argument statement, start a thread about that and your other off-topic points if you need to. But for the record, I'm fine with that. I'm generally not happy when good things happen to bad people but you can't legislate against that and nor should you. I'm talking about people who have the power to change things, the audience, not giving CK their money so completely different to a criminal winning the lottery. You're talking about someone being the recipient of luck, I'm talking about someone being the recipient of money given to him by people who are fully aware of what a shitbag he is. You really can't see the difference?

Why are they the wrong details? I think you maybe confusing them with the right details.

End of day, dude is a still free man and free to pursue what career he likes, as long as some people are happy to let him and at least till he chokes it and palms any of his good will away again. Best reading of his hand-pankey infractions is that he was completely unwell. Unwell people deserve sympathy. He is going to have to live with and answer for all the awkwardness he subjected all those comediennes with but a lot of people learn to forgive and everyone is entitled to a shot at redemption. There will be uncomfort. You and plenty of others who do want to avoid him in the street and not cross eyes with him should stick to that other side of street and look away, walk away from his comedy shows if they crop up but maybe best to leave him to his own devices and let him have his chance to show that he has changed before you put him in the jerkbeast pillories for good. Don’t try and strip him of his rights and jerk him around in in front of others. He has already done that for himself.

Ok, this is the last time I'm going to say this, because you're clearly not reading my posts. I don't want to stop him doing anything. I'd like the people who support him to stop supporting him and giving him a free pass. If he had apologized, or said he'd learned something, or showed any kind of guilt and remorse and not laugh it off like in that TMZ clip, I'd more inclined to give him a chance. But as it is, and the way he's currently behaving, he can fuck off. Some people are happy that he's back and are willing to support him in that. Fair play to you. For the last fucking time, the audience will decide if he can come back and be succesful.

You want the people who support him to not support him anymore. That’s realistic. I’m going to ring up every Manchester City fan and ask them to stop supporting their club. How do you say if someone is giving someone a free pass or if they are mortified by his previous behaviour but are willing to forgive past crimes and move on because that’s what supportive people do. Going uber judgemental on the TMZ video as well. He probably was trying to laugh off attention from the reporter rather than laughing at his previous victims.
