Louis CK’s comedy album, Sincerely Louis CK was recorded back in 2019, two years after The New York Times added further credibility to several long-standing allegations published over the years by Gawker, in which several women accused Louis CK of various non-consensual dick-yanking acts of misconduct, like masturbating in front of unwilling female comedians in hotel rooms. The stand-up special was released in April 2020. Reviews ranged from praise, to a little heavy on the self-pity. But clearly, the voters of the Recording Academy thought it was the best of the year or at least the best among the six albums nominated this year. Louis CK’s Sincerely Louis CK was up against stand-up comedy albums by Nate Bargatze, Lavell Crawford, Chelsea Handler, Lewis Black, and Kevin Hart. And last night, Louis CK took home his third Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album. This is the album where he cracks jokes about the allegations against him and now it’s a Grammy-winning comedy album. Because you know, “cancel culture “exists.
Yesterday, the 2022 Grammy nominations were announced, and Marilyn Manson, who has been repeatedly accused of sexual assault and misconduct by several women (most notably Evan Rachel Wood), was nominated for his contributions to Kanye West’s album, Donda. No, you can’t get nominated for participating in shameless publicity stunts; Marilyn Manson provides vocals on the song “Jail pt 2.” Also nominated for a Grammy yesterday was Louis C.K., who you may remember as the man who admitted to jerking off in front of unwilling participants, was nominated for Best Comedy Album, for his latest album Sincerely Louis C.K. Naturally, those choices had some people questioning the Recording Academy, and the Recording Academy has come back to utter the age-old creep-excusing adage of “Judge the artist, not the art.”
Here’s a little something for the “cancel cancel culture” crowd. Because Louis C.K. was “canceled” in 2017, and yet somehow in 2021, he’s launching a big comedy tour. First, the return of Kevin Spacey is upon us, and now the return of Louis C.K is coming. And if Bill Cosby’s comeback tour dreams come true, 2021 will really be The Year Of Icky.
Ever since Louis C.K. confirmed the longstanding rumors that he was a dick-yanking creep, and was subsequently fired and dropped from everything, he’s been trying to stage his big comeback. Between the red hair and the delusion, he’s like if Valerie Cherish were awful. And his comeback just hasn’t happened yet, because it seems that every time his name is in the news, it’s for something bad. Remember Louis LOL-ing about the n-word? Or when Louis roasted up the surviving Parkland High School shooting victims? We’ve got a new one to add to the list of Embarrassing Reasons Why Louis CK Is Trending Today, and it’s because Joe Biden sent back a donation Louis made to his 2020 Presidential campaign.
Louis C.K. has been accused of something that surprisingly doesn’t involve him jacking off someone into a corner. Sarma Melngailis, the fallen queen of the NYC vegan scene who stole investors’ money and didn’t pay her employees, could have told you that. Page Six reports that after Sarma informed Louis that she thought he’d given her an STD, he basically typographically shrugged and was all “eh, it happens” about it.
Here lies Louis C.K. The once popular, rich, and creatively fulfilled comedian’s career can finally be put to rest (God willing). He is survived by his children who probably already hate him, and possibly, Sarah Silverman. He leaves behind a tarnished legacy primarily comprised of hack masturbation jokes and 2 million unboxed DVDs of I Love You, Daddy moldering away in a some storage shed in Queens. Services are being held on Twitter.
The cause of death was leaked audio of a comedy set Louis did on December 16th that proved he is still the spiteful, petulant, narcissist hack he always was. Because Louis, a grown man, has had his feelings hurt, he’s taking it out on the children who survived the Parkland shooting, and young people who dare ask people to address them using their correct pronouns. Yes, it was a questionable choice of material. But worst of all, none of it was funny in the least.
