Louis CK was one of the most successful comedians of his time. He was also one of the most beloved comedians since his very first special “Live In Houston” in 2001, which immediately made him a legend of comedy. Which is why the world was shocked when he was caught in the tsunami of sexual misconduct allegations created by the #MeToo movement in 2017. The accusations against CK were all confirmed by him, as he admitted in his official response that every woman that came forward was telling the truth. As you can imagine, his shiny career went down the drain overnight.
The fallout from the scandal saw the abrupt cancellation of his Netflix deal, as well as his acclaimed TV series “Louie” and his upcoming film “I Love You, Daddy”, which he was in the middle of promoting at the time. CK has completely disappeared from the public eye, aside from a few attempts at a comeback, most of which were very poorly received by the masses. He eventually released a self-produced standup special on his website in 2020 (which got a very divisive response), but it is safe to assume that his career will never go back to where it was.
