Controversial-driven Louis CK has been on his first international tour since returning to the stage with jokes that fooled the shootings at Parkland High School and the Nazi concentration camp in Auschwitz.
The tour is part of CK & # 39; s comeback after five women harassed sexual harassment, which he admitted he masturbated for.
The CK website starts the tour in Richmond, Virginia, on November 2, and continues to make several stops in American cities before heading off to Israel, Italy, and Slovakia.
He then returns to America for performances in various cities before ending up in New Orleans on January 31.

For comparison, the band Goo-Goo Dolls is asking $ 38 to $ 1573 for its performance at the same location later this month.
CK promises that he will add more dates and says he expects: & # 39; See you all (or some of you anyway) en route & # 39 ;.
CK, also a writer, actor and filmmaker, returned to the comedy stage in August 2018, less than a year after five women accused him of sexual misconduct, which he later admitted.
The women were mostly comedians who said he asked to see them masturbate or forced them to see him masturbate.
For years, rumors have swirled that the comedian used his status and power to harass female comedians.
After the accusations had arisen, the comedian immediately announced that they were true.
& # 39; These stories are true. What I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking him or her to look at your doctor is not a question. It is a precarious situation for them. The power I had over these women was that they admired me. And I used that power irresponsibly & # 39 ;, he said in a statement that was released the day after the allegations emerged.
Despite his confession, he experienced no legal consequences for sexual misconduct.
However, his stand-up special was cut from Netflix and his relationship with HBO and FX was also switched.
Only nine months later he returned to the spotlight. It wasn't long before he created more controversy for himself during a performance at a comedy club on Long Island in December, where he referred to Parkland.
Students David Hogg, 18, and Emma Gonzalez, 19, became faces of the gun reform movement after the devastating shooting in Parkland on February 14, 2018, in which 17 people were killed by the hand of shooter Nikolas Cruz.
CK & # 39; s unleashed its brash, non-apologetic style on the students.
& # 39; They testify before the Congress of these children … What are you doing? You are young, you must be crazy, you must be free. Not in a suit that says: & # 39; I'm here to tell you … & # 39; F ** k you & # 39 ;, he said the execution in a clip leaked form.
& # 39; You are not interesting because you went to a high school where children were shot. Why does that mean I have to listen to you? Why are you so interesting? You were not shot. You have pushed a fat child in the way and now I have to hear you talk & # 39 ;.
All the while the audience can be heard laughing during the sixth sold-out show of the comedian in the club.
The comedian also joked about today's youth and belittled gender identity terms in his set.
Despite his confession to sexually intimidating women, CK had no legal consequences for sexual misconduct. Protesters are shown outside of one of his shows in San Jose, California
& # 39; I am really so disappointed in the younger generation because I am 51 years old and I was 18 and in my 20s we were idiots. We got high with mushrooms and sh * t … I was a little excited to be in my 50s and to see people in my 20s and to be like these kids are crazy, these kids are fun … but they are not! & # 39; he said.
& # 39; They are just boring. F ** king told me you shouldn't say that. What are you an old lady? … You must address me … because she / she because I identify myself as gender neutral. You should address me there … because I am a location … and the location is your mother's c *** & # 39 ;, he added.
He compared them with royalties for demanding specific gender titles that make them feel comfortable.
The video of his set has been posted on YouTube.
In his hour-long story, he talked about his difficult year and how he lost $ 35 million and hinted at the accusations of sexual misconduct against him.
& # 39; I live in New York. I f * king hate it now. I loved New York for 20 years. Now I prefer to be in Auschwitz, to be honest. I mean now Auschwitz & # 39 ;, he said.
In previous sets, he said he feels that everyone hates him and is booed in public.
The clip caused indignation on Twitter with users who sent him a & # 39; monster & # 39; called.
CK on his website says he is working on the road with professional stand-up comedy & # 39; and gives no hint about the controversial tone he has taken. He describes his act as consisting of & # 39; sharing jokes, stories, observations, lies, non-lies and generally being ridiculous for the benefit of a smiling audience & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I live in New York. I f * king hate it now. I loved New York for 20 years. Now I prefer to be in Auschwitz, to be honest. I mean now Auschwitz, & said the city after its fall from grace. He is pictured with walking his dog in Greenwich Village in Manhattan in January
