“I am on the road doing professional stand-up comedy. Which consists of sharing jokes, stories, observations, lies, non-lies, and being generally ridiculous for the benefit of a laughing audience,” he wrote on his website. 

C.K. has incrementally, and controversially, tried to make a comeback since he admitted that multiple allegations of sexual misconduct against him were true

His first time back on stage after the controversy was an unannounced 15-minute performance in August 2018 at the Comedy Cellar in New York City. Subsequent reports about his comeback noted that his comedy material featured C.K. mocking trans and non-binary people and the survivors of the Parkland, Florida school shooting.
