Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah, Seth Meyers and Jordan Klepper all took time on their respective late-night shows Thursday night to comment on the sexual misconduct claims against fellow comedian Louis C.K.
On the Late Show on CBS, Colbert addressed the damning New York Times expose claiming comedian Louis C.K., who was supposed to appear on the show on Thursday, exposed himself and masturbated in front of five women. Chicago comedy duo Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov, comedians Rebecca Corry, Abby Schachner and C.K. collaborator and one-time friend Tig Notaro all spoke to the Times for the story.
The report came just hours after news broke that the New York premiere of C.K.’s upcoming film, I Love You, Daddy, had been canceled, citing “unexpected circumstances.”
Colbert has known C.K. for decades. The two were part of the writers room on The Dana Carvey Show in the ‘90s, which also included Steve Carell and Robert Smigel.
Colbert opened his monologue tackling the C.K. news head-on. “For those of you tuning in to see my interview with Louis C.K. tonight, I have some bad news. Then I have some really bad news. Louis canceled his appearance here tonight because The New York Times broke this story today: Five women are accusing Louis C.K. of sexual misconduct.”
He added: “When reached for comment, Jesus said, ‘bla-bla-bla-bla-bla, I don’t want to hear about it. I was a big fan!’”
