Well now we know once and for all that routinely pulling things out will eventually lead to pulling out of routines.

I'm not. He's my favourite living comedian. And now I've wasted money on advance train tickets.

I just canceled my train tickets, though annoyingly there's a £10 charge and I have to send the fuckers back, now!

Oh well... maybe we can take some sort of solace in this...

Toby Jones should feel like a prick. 'weeks of deliberation' and then cancels 2 days in.

No sympathy for anyone who's lost out on this tbh.

Imagine knowing someone is an actual danger to their work colleagues and thinking "I'm going to support his continued employment"

Wouldn't it be better for a group of protestors to turn up with air horns and let them off before every punchline?

For me at least, it's not about supporting his continued employment. It's about the opportunity for a first hand experience and making my own mind up how I feel about something.

But didn't his abhorrent set which leaked in December give you the chance to do that?

There's something I really like about the phrase 'wankbeast.' but I can't quite get a handle on it.

So, what, you come out of the show having laughed a bunch of times and decide you’re gonna let him off the hook for multiple cases of sexual assault?

Or failing that, in the instance of just wanting to gauge it for yourself despite having no further interest in supporting him as an artist because he committed multiple cases of sexual assault, you want to ... uhh, basically go and see if this shamed writer is still writing decent material? But still supporting him as an artist and giving him the attention he desires in the process?

I find both sides of this morally questionable to say the least.

didn't he get consent from the other fully grown adults involved.

quite the development if that turns out to be entirely irrelevant!

Like breaking a boycott of apartheid South Africa to see if their fruit tasted any good.

But Louis CK isn’t really a jerkbeast anymore so it would be like visiting South Africa after they stopped being apartheid.

He hasn't stopped being anything. He was rumbled and finally confessed after a long period of denial.

More the second one. I'm interested in seeing a formerly highly acclaimed comedian post-fall from grace. Sorry - that's just how I feel about it. I don't feel that to admit that equates to a denigration of his victims, or coming out in support of sexual assault.

Taking a moral stance on Louis C.K. is perfectly laudable and spiffy, but it's when we start to take a moral stance on other people's moral stances that we really start to leave terra firma.

Aside from the fact that it so often turns ostensibly similar and likeminded people into craven paranoiacs- see third act of Treasure of the Sierra Madre, except with a cast of thousands- it also casts shade on anyone not responding the same way as you, as if they've osmosed some of Louis' guilt onto themselves.  This is not a healthy way of interacting with one another.  Giving people post-mortems while they're still alive to find every possible way they're different than us, rather than the things we have in common.

He's still funny and I don't think what he did was so heinous  which is why I wanted to go and why my disappointment is so enjoyable for youse
