Night begin, as so many do lately, with a tweet. After news that Louis CK had made his return to Comedy with a surprise set at Comedy Cellar, Padma Lakshmi followed up tweet from Kathy Griffin with a list of talented comics she loves, all of them female, queer, and nonwhite-comics who are still waiting to get to that Louis CK money. Some of those included bigger names like Leslie Jones and Hasan Minhaj, but then there were deeper cuts, including many Vulture faves: Naomi Ekperigin, Joel Kim Booster, Patti Harrison, Ana Fabrega, and on and on. Tweet had the effect of recommending some very good comics, and maybe more importantly, making us pause: Wait, Padma is a comedy nerd? So, with the help of her assistant Caroline Perkins, Top Chef host and author becomes unlikely but welcome patron saint of New York City Comedy, putting together two sell-out Comedy shows at Bell House, co-produce by Sue Bohlen and Vultures own Jesse David Fox. They raised almost 20 000 for Movement Voter Project through ticket sales, raffles, and auctions ahead of midterms. I was giddy like a schoolgirl, Lakshmi said on the phone the day after. I like comedy groupie, so for me, it was like the time I played tambourine onstage with Foo Fighters when they were doing a concert for 12 000 people in Rochester. I felt that same exhilaration, but I didnt have to speak, so this is little more challenging. Lakshmi open night succinctly: Ill make this brief: Fuck Louis CK To be honest, I just couldnt think of any other jokes. It was that lame, she said afterward. I think, 'll just say the same jokes that are short, and just warm up for 30 seconds and then say thank you and get off. But maybe I 'll just use that little bit to say thank you, and just pivot and say, if it were for my ire about what happen, I wouldve never had this show tonight. The thing that annoys me most about this particular case was that he tried to stifle and bury the careers of various female comedians who called him out on his shit, Lakshmi continue. And it just like, it is so hard as a woman, as an actor, as director, as a comedian, as a writer, to even get notice. And then to have courage and bravery to speak the truth, and be slapped down and punished for it in such a cruel way, really speaks to me. Lakshmi does believe that there is a path to redemption for someone like CK, but that she hasnt seen him put in the requisite work.
