Wende Curtis, the owner of famed comedy club Comedy Works club in Denver, described to Jezebel her decision to turn down a request from CK's assistant to book him for April. Curtis says before making her decision, she read The New York Times exposé on CK and contacted one of his victims via email. She also asked if she could speak to CK, and his assistant said she could. But then, Curtis admits, “I kinda cowarded out, honestly. I thought, ‘I’m not going to make a difference with him.” Instead, she wrote his assistant an email saying “I just can’t."
