Comedians Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov were invited into Louis' hotel room during the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in 2002.
"He proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating", Goodman said.
When contacted by the Times about the story, C.K.'s publicist Lewis Kay said, "Louis is not going to answer any questions".
"It's Louis C.K., locking the door and masturbating in front of women comics and writers".
Another comedian, Rebecca Corry, says C.K. actually asked her to masturbate in front of her during the filming of a 2005 television pilot, which she angrily declined. In I Love You Daddy, a character pretends to masturbate at length in public while other characters defend that he's not a sexual predator. "It's amusing. I didn't think of that". "And it's just par for the course", she said of the comedy business. I can't tell you - I've heard so many stories.
Rumors of alleged inappropriate behavior involving Louis C.K. have been gossiped about for years. They claimed that Louis C.K.'s manager Dave Becky wanted them to stop sharing the story, and they told the Times they felt they had been warned to stay quiet.
In a story published Thursday, the Times identified four women by name, and a fifth who was anonymous, who recounted similar stories of C.K. crossing the line of sexual misconduct in their encounters with them dating back more than a decade. (Reps for the premiere cited "unexpected circumstances.") C.K. was also booked to appear on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Thursday night but canceled at the last minute, according to a source.
Louis C.K is the latest high-profile entertainment figure to be publicly accused of sexual misconduct. While talking to him on the phone, she could hear him masturbating, she said.
So far, Louis C.K. has refused to address these allegations, which never bodes well for the star in mention. "We're depicting oxygen-rich people who live in these lovely apartments and offices saying whatever they want", he said. Weinstein could also soon face criminal charges, after multiple women accused him of rape in the weeks since the Times story first broke.
