Louis C.K. is banning phones and note-taking at forthcoming five-day Toronto residency

The residency comes two years after the comic admitted to sexual misconduct

Two years after admitting to sexual misconduct, comic Louis C.K. is returning to Toronto for a five-day residency at Yuk Yuk’s, where he’ll be putting some intense restrictions on his audience.

The comedian’s comeback, which kicks off on Wednesday, will come with some strict rules for the audience, such as no phones, and no “recording of any kind, including note taking.” Any audience member who violates the rules will be asked to leave the show. The full set of rules are listed on Yuk Yuk’s website, where it reveals that cell phones, recording devices, and smart accessories will not be permitted.
 


Yuk Yuk’s disclaimer explains that Louis C.K. owns the rights to all jokes and sketches from his performance, and that the content of the show cannot be copied or distributed “in any form, media, or technology now known or later developed” without his written consent.

Phones and smart watches will be secured in Yondr cases upon arrival that audience members keep with them.
