Humiliated comedian Louis C.K. has hatched a plan to worm his way back into the spotlight, RadarOnline.com has learned.

“He’s going to do it slowly, but surely, starting with a behind the camera role,” reveals an insider. “He’s playing it safe and will dip his toe back in via executive producer type stuff.”

Radar readers will remember that C.K. was part of the disgraced #MeToo movement. The former Louie star was accused in Nov. 2017 of sexual misconduct by at least five women in a scathing New York Times expose.

Just days later, C.K. came clean, and admitted to the accusations.

“These stories are true,” he said in a written statement. “At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my d**k without asking first, which is also true. But what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your dick isn’t a question. It’s a predicament for them.

“The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly.”

After news broke of his sexual advances towards women, C.K. suffered a complete career shutdown. His film, I Love You Daddy was dropped by its distributor, and he was also axed from Netflix and HBO.

But now, nearly a year after his career crash, C.K. is hoping time is the ultimate forgiver.

“He’s telling everyone he wants to foster young new talent,” the source revealed. “And while his intentions might be good, everyone knows this a big part of this reinvention is to gain back his once-good reputation, so he can re-launch his stand-up career.”

Do you forgive Louis? Should he be allowed back in entertainment? Let us know in the comments section.
