Embattled comedian Louis C.K. performed an unscheduled stand-up set at New York's Comedy Cellar on Sunday, the club's owner, Noam Dworman, told CNN's Brooke Baldwin.

There are many such attacks on Louis C.K. and the comedy club that allowed him to make his surprise appearance.

He appeared at around 11pm and dressed in a black V-neck shit and gray trousers, performed a set of 'typical Louis C.K stuff, ' including racism, tipping waitresses and parades, Noam Dworman, the owner of the Comedy Cellar, told the Times.

According to Mr Dworman, one audience member complained on Monday about not being told in advance of Louis CK's appearance so they could decide whether they wanted to have been there or not.

In November, five women came forward to the New York Times with allegations of inappropriate behavior by Louis C.K.in November.

"Since speaking out, I've experienced vicious and swift backlash from women and men, in and out of the comedy community", Corry wrote in a Vulture essay in May".

On Twitter , the USA first lady wrote: "Our thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathy to the McCain Family". McCain died on Saturday in Arizona, more than a year after he was diagnosed with brain cancer .

While he worked on "typical Louis C.K. stuff" - material on racism and waitress tips - there was no mention of the accusations against him. "But he chose to just rip the band-aid off", he remarked.

Although Dworman said he cares about 'doing the right thing, ' he believes he is in a hard position.

He added: "I understand that some people will be upset with me".

Another comedian there told the paper that C.K. was well received by the audience and was "really, really good".

News of Louis CK's return didn't go down too well with his fellow comedians and others in the entertainment world, however, with some expressing their disappointment on social media. "At the time, I said to myself that what I did was O.K. because I never showed a woman" his genitals "without asking first, which is also true". The crowd felt similarly: the audience reportedly gave Louis C.K. a huge round of applause before he even began his set, and they laughed warmly at all of his jokes.

His return to the stage isn't sitting well with many people on Twitter, though. In his statement, CK said he would "step back" from his career.
