Howard Stern: Sarah Silverman Enjoyed Watching Louis C.K. Masturbate In Front of Her

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.”

Joe Rogan Reacts to Louis C.K. Stand-Up Comedy Return: “I don’t think Louis C.K. is a bad guy at all.”

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.”

Kevin Hart is the Highest-paid and Hardest Working Comic

Kevin Hart, the highest-paid comedian in 2016, was a guest on the Howard Stern Show this week to promote his new book, I Can’t Make This Up: Life Lessons. Kevin Hart revealed that he and Chris Rock threw out their comedy material and went back to the drawing board after watching Dave Chappelle’s recent set.

Hart recalled a recent night that he and Chris Rock tried out some new material at the Comedy Cellar in New York. Both got off stage satisfied with their performance.

“Dave Chappelle pops in later that night. Me and Chris go downstairs so we can watch Dave. Keep in mind, me and Chris are excited. Dave went on stage. It was so good that me and Chris just took what we had, we balled it up. We threw it in the trash.” Hart added, “I was so disgusted at seeing where my level of thinking was after seeing where Dave was.”

He went on to reveal his strategy for building a successful career as a comic, which often includes doing 45 sets in a week until he gets his material just right.

Hart spent 30 hours a week getting from Philadelphia to New York City for five minutes of stage time.

“The unsuccessful get halfway to the finish line, then turn around,” he states. “The successful get halfway, then keep going. Both run the same distance, but only one makes it to the finish line.

Comedian Louis C.K on the Howard Stern Show

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.
