Silverman went on Howard Stern’s radio show and said C.K. used to masturbate in front of her, too, but with her permission.
“I don’t know if I’m going to regret saying this,” Silverman said. “I’ve known Louis forever, I’m not making excuses for him. Please don’t take this that way. We are peers. We are equals. When we were kids, and he asked if he could masturbate in front of me.”
Sometimes she said yes, sometimes not, she told Stern.
“I’m not saying everyone should embrace Louis again,” she said. “I believe he has remorse. I just want him to talk about it on stage. He’s going to have to find his way or not find his way.”
It’s been a little over a month since Louis C.K made his attempt at a return to stand-up comedy.
Louis C.K made a surprise appearance at New York’s Comedy Cellar, where he performed a 15-minute set to a standing ovation. It was his first high-profile public performance since November 2017, when he admitted to having masturbated in front of multiple unwilling women.
For Louis C.K’s fans, his 15-minute set was a welcome return to comedy. He’d taken his medicine, was the general argument, and now it was time for the public to let him come back to comedy as a changed man.
“Will take heat for this, but people have to be allowed to serve their time and move on with their lives,” wrote actor Michael Ian Black, in a tweet he later apologized for. “I don’t know if it’s been long enough, or his career will recover, or if people will have him back, but I’m happy to see him try.”
“I don’t think Louie is a bad guy at all. I think what Louie is, is a pervert,” said Joe Rogan during his JRE #1165 podcast. “He’s not trying to hurt people. He’s just weird.”
It’s been close to five years since Louis C.K. got drunk on an airplane and tweeted the foulest things he could think of about Sarah Palin. Since then, he has moved on and deleted his Twitter account, but as the comedian told Howard Stern on Wednesday, it was just two months ago that he finally decided to apologize.
As Louis C.K. told it, Palin actually approached him at the afterparty for Saturday Night Live’s 40th anniversary special to tell him she thought he was “terrific” and “really funny,” though it was unclear if she really knew who he was.
In response, Louis C.K. just said, “I owe you an apology,” telling Stern that he’s never before apologized for anything he’s said and “fuck anybody else who’s offended.” But now that he was face-to-face with Palin, he felt he needed to address the situation.
When he explained to her what he had done, Palin told him, “Well, you’re a vile person,” which made him laugh. Then she invited him to go fishing with her next time he’s in Alaska, which he said he would do in a heartbeat.
Stern and Louis C.K. agreed that Palin is attractive and they both kind of want to “fuck” her. “It would be fun to fuck a conservative politician,” the comedian said, noting that opposites attract for a reason. This conversation led Stern to admit that he also fantasizes about sleeping with Megyn Kelly and Kimberly Guilfoyle from Fox News.
Radio legend Howard Stern will celebrate his 60th birthday show in style on January 31st, 2014.
Rockers Jon Bon Jovi, Steven Tyler and John Fogerty will all perform at “Howard Stern’s Birthday Bash.” Presented by SiriusXM and hosted byJimmy Kimmel, the show will take place at the Hammerstein Ballroom. Stern’s actual birthday was this past weekend, Jan. 12.
Other celebs honoring the birthday boy include David Letterman and comedian Louis C.K. Said The Howard Stern Show host on a recent episode: “I am very excited to see Jon and thank him for that. And also one of my heroes will perform that night — one of the all-time greats. … A guy whose every record I bought when he was in Creedence Clearwater Revival, and later his solo stuff. John Fogerty will come by to perform two great songs. I won’t say what the songs are, [but] we’re really excited about that.”
Stern had previously announced that Tyler would make an appearance but did not divulge what the Aerosmith frontman has planned.
“He’s going to be performing with someone very special,” said Stern. “There’s a lot of superstars coming, but I am a huge, huge fan of Aerosmith’s and of Steven’s. I love the way he interprets a song, and to have him there that night performing is fantastic.”
Louis CK is one of comedy’s leading talents, but it wasn’t always that way, not by a long shot, according to a new 90-minute interview with Howard Stern that ran on Stern’s satellite radio show last week.
In it, Louis is as candid as he’s ever been. He describes watching all of his friends get hired on Saturday Night Live. He talks about why there are no other writers for his FX show Louie.
