Louis CK is apparently bent on rehabilitating his comedy career one surprise appearance at a time. The comedian performed his second unannounced set at the Comedy Cellar in New York City over the weekend, about a month after his first. The New York Post puts a negative spin on it, referring to an "unhappy audience" in its headline, but the Hollywood Reporter quotes an onlooker who says CK got a "warm greeting." At least two patrons walked out, taking advantage of a new ticket policy put in place after CK's first appearance.

"If an unannounced appearance is not your cup of tea, you are free to leave (unobtrusively please) no questions asked, your check on the house," each ticket now reads. As in his first show, CK apparently didn't dwell on his #MeToo controversy during the set. However, the Post source says: “He was a little arrogant … he made some comment like, ‘I’ve been off for a while, ‘cause everyone needs a break.'" (More Louis CK stories.)
