  • Tig Notaro said she felt “trapped” by her association with Louis C.K., who is listed as one of the executive producers on her series “One Mississippi.”
  • Notaro asked C.K. to address stories of sexual misconduct about him in August.
  • Notaro said that two of C.K.’s accusers told her about their experiences with the comedian.

Comedian Tig Notaro told The New York Times that she felt “trapped” by her association with comedian Louis C.K., after learning of allegations of sexual misconduct against him.

C.K. is currently listed as the executive producer on Notaro’s Amazon series “One Mississippi,” and released her comedy album in 2012.

On Thursday, the Times published a bombshell story that detailed five allegations of sexual misconduct against C.K.

“Sadly, I’ve come to learn that Louis C.K.’s victims are not only real, but many are actual friends of mine within the comedy community,” Notaro told the Times.

According to Notaro, two of C.K.’s accusers, Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov, told her that C.K. had masturbated in front of them.

Notaro told the Times that she only learned about C.K.’s reputation after her series “One Mississippi” had been sold.

One of the main storylines in “One Mississippi’s” latest season involves a male executive masturbating in front of his female employee.

In an interview with The Daily Beast in August, Notaro spoke out about C.K. failing to address the rumors of sexual misconduct against him in the comedy community. In the interview, Notaro also expressed dismay over the fact that she felt people assumed C.K. worked on “One Mississippi” with her, when in fact he had “nothing to do with the show.”

Notaro now fears that C.K. released her comedy album in 2012 to “cover his tracks” and make him “look like a good guy, supporting a woman,” she told the Times.

Tig Notaro did not immediately respond to Business Insiders request for comment.
