Louis CK receives standing ovation as he returns to comedy stage

Louis CK

The former Louie star shocked the audience at the Comedy Cellar in New York City when he took the stage for an announced set at the famed venue where he often used to perform, The New York Times reported.

Club owner Noam Dworman told The Wrap that he received "sustained applause" for his 15-minute set.

Allegations from the women that came forward against CK included claims made by female comedians Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov, who said that that during a meeting, as they all sat down still in their outerwear, Louis asked if he could take out his penis.

Louis CK released a statement past year during the height of the #MeToo campaign movement, confirming that allegations made against him by five women, including that he masturbated in front of them, were in fact true and saying that he could never forgive himself for the "scope of hurt" he had caused.

Despite the audience giving Louis a standing ovation, Dworman said at least one member of the crowd called the club to complain and many voiced their opinions on social media, as well.

Louis C.K. went on to say that he is "remorseful" and has "tried to learn" from his irresponsible behavior.

"I learned yesterday the extent to which I left these women who admired me feeling badly about themselves and cautious around other men who would never have put them in that position", he said at the time.

Dworman, who did not watch the show himself, said that he was told C.K. "But he made a decision to just rip the Band-Aid off", he told the paper.

He said: "The danger today was getting swept up in the enthusiasm of the stadium for Ronaldo's first game at the stadium".

Others were a little more explicit in their feelings of what C.K.'s return means to the #MeToo movement. In addition, Orchard canceled the release of his film I Love You, Daddy.

In October a year ago, Comedians Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov alleged that Louis C.K. invited them back to his hotel room and then asked if he could take his penis out.

Do you think C.K. returned too soon?
