I’m willing to bet that’s the same face Norm Macdonald’s publicist made after seeing Norm question the #MeToo movement while defending Louis CK, Roseanne Barr, Chris Hardwick, and realizing they better clear their schedule. Norm gave an interview to The Hollywood Reporter to promote his upcoming Netflix series, Norm Macdonald Has a Show, and he came through with the kind of opinions that got him booted from an appearance on The Tonight Show last night.
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the What Allegations? 2018 Redemption Tour! Upcoming dates TBA, but we do know that the tour has begun and more performers have been added to the lineup. Louis C.K. kicked things off on Sunday night with a surprise visit to the Comedy Cellar in NYC, where he received a standing ovation. Rumored to be next up are Matt Lauer and Aziz Ansari.

The good news for them is that Louis will be giving them a full refund for their purchase.
“Widely admired” comedian Louis C.K.’s (turns out he was actually jacking off to how awesome he thought he was) recent admission to beating off in front of five women who hadn’t requested such a service has pretty much lowered his career’s coffin into the ground. The Los Angeles Times reports that his manager, publicist, and the FX network (where a lot of Louis’ projects lived) have parted ways with him. He’s also been dropped from The Secret Life of Pets 2. Admiration is short-lived when you’re outed as a creepster. Continue reading
