Female comedians protest Louis C.K. booking with own show
MADISON, Wis. — A group of all-female comedians put on a comedy showcase Sunday night in protest of comedian Louis C.K.’s scheduled shows at the Comedy Club.
C.K. has faced numerous sexual assault allegations in the past few years. The all-female show raised money for the Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault.
“I do think it’s important to send a message to people who are like — this normalizes the idea that somebody who makes people, particularly women, feel uncomfortable — it just normalizes the idea of booking them when you could have booked somebody else,” comedian Sasha Rosser said.
It’s not just female comedians upset by Louis C.K.’s booking. A local feminist organization also gathered to make signs protesting his Sunday night appearances.
