Louis CK returns to the stage after nine months and seems to sink like a lead balloon.

The comedian retired from the limelight after confessing to sexual misconduct after being accused by five women in a New York Times expose. However, after his surprising appearance at the Comedy Cellar in New York on Sunday night, in which he received a standing ovation, his set was described as "uncomfortable" and "embarrassing" as some in the audience claimed that they were by his unannounced slot on the bill felt robbed.

Speaking to the New York Magazine Vulture, the Punters also claimed the star included a joke about rape sirens in his set.

One woman told the site, "It felt like you were bumping into the audience without telling them." [19659003] Another added the se It was embarrassing how she said, "There were at least four or five women I could see, and three or four of them did not have it. They just looked at him, expressionless, straight, without having it.

They then described a joke to the publication that began with the phrase "clean as a whistle" in which the comic was set up to say rape pipes.

It was said, "When he said rape call, they laughed People, and I just sat there like oh my f ***. It's so uncomfortable and so disgusting. Everyone around me laughed. That was just depressing. "

Last November, the 50-year-old was accused by five women – one of whom remained anonymous – of masturbating either in front of them or during telephone conversations, allegations Louis admitted to New York Times published.

Comedy star Kathy Griffin struck the stage in the Boys Club, claiming that the Louie star had "just been on a long vacation."

The 57-year-old tweeted: " Do you know how many talented women and POC comics are knocking on doors to have time in front of an audience or powerful people in the business? And Louis may just slip back on his own terms? Gosh, it pays to be in the Boys Club … at the White Boys Club.

The venue's owner, Noam Dworman, defended the decision to have Louis on stage, as he told Vanity Fair: "Basically, I believe that the man is entitled to a living, and that it's up to the audience, to go or not to go. I believe that in principle.

"But in terms of the comedy basement, this is nothing but a difficulty for us – here we have no advantage."
