Tig Notaro: Louis C.K.’s Forced Departure from ‘One Mississippi’ Was ‘A Huge Relief’
While promoting “One Mississippi” during an appearance on “The View,” star and co-creator Tig Notaro reflected on losing Louis C.K. as a series executive producer last month, a consequence for the sexually harassing behavior he admitted to following a New York Times investigation quoting five accusers.

“It’s a huge relief,” Notaro told the hosts on December 11, explaining that she learned of C.K.’s alleged behavior soon after she sold the series with him attached. “I started publicly trying to distance myself from him almost two years [ago].”

Tig Notaro Addresses Louis C.K. Fallout: 'It's Important to Keep the Conversation Going'
Tig Notaro believes you can't solve the problem without addressing it.

After several women came forward accusing Louis C.K. of sexual harassment -- claims the comedian admitted are true -- Notaro opened up to Et about the importance of continuing on with the discussion about harassment in Hollywood at the Garry Marshall Theatre's First Annual Founders Gala on Monday night.

"I think it's so important to keep the conversation going," the 46-year-old comedian shared. "I know it's said all the time, but I think there's something to the fact that continuing to communicate always makes something better. When you abandon a discussion, you're not getting anyplace."

In regard to C.K. specifically, Notaro said she is "in full support of the victims," noting, "I said everything I wanted to say about Louis."

“I have not spoken to Louis in probably going on two years now. I will never hear from Louis C.K. again,” Notaro told The Hollywood Reporter.

But that doesn’t mean everything is quiet. Far from it.

The History

Rumors of sexual misconduct have been haunting C.K. for years, and they’re gaining traction in the public discourse. The popular stand-up comic, television producer, and filmmaker has been asked to respond to allegations that he has exposed himself and masturbated in front of unwilling participants. He’s refused to engage with the rumors, but the discussion persists because of, in part, Notaro’s statements and her show, “One Mississippi.”
