Chris D’Elia’s career seems to be derailing once again. The comedian’s show at the Hollywood Improv has quietly been canceled, according to Rolling Stone. This is weeks after the comedian faced new accusations of sexual misconduct and predatory behavior.

The 42-year-old was originally scheduled to perform at the venue on January 11th as part of his Country-Wide tour. The tour is set to kick off on January 7th running through mid-May. But earlier this week the date was removed from both D’Elia’s website and the Hollywood Improv website without explanation.

A Hollywood Improv rep went on to confirm the cancellation to Rolling Stones but didn’t give any further comment. Rolling Stone apparently did reach out to the comedian for a comment,  but there has been no response.

The Chris D’Elia Problem…

Back in December, after two years that the comedian was accused of using his celebrity status in order to seek young women to request nude photographs and making unwanted sexual advances, comedian Kyle Anderson went on to release a YouTube documentary furthering the initial allegations.

D’Elia quickly denied the accusations back in the summer of 2020 saying that all of his encounters were indeed legal and consensual. He has yet to respond to any of the new claims, but on Wednesday did release a Patreon episode saying that he was recently in rehab. The star went on to note that sex had once controlled his life.

In the documentary, D’Elia’s former tour manager, Zach Doncovio, and four women detail the comedian’s alleged predatory behavior along with several accusations that said despite having a family of his own, he has continued to have secret relationships with several women until this past fall.

Jazzmyn Wollfe came forward claiming that she had indeed been dating the comedian since March 2020 and quickly became trapped in a controlling and emotionally abused relationship. He would allegedly dictate what she could wear and who she could see demanding that she send him degrading sexual videos, encouraging her to get his initials tattooed on her neck.

The documentary went on to note that despite the comedian being dropped from several of his projects, he has emerged relatively unscathed. His podcast and Patreon still have a very loyal following, as well as his YouTube channel almost gaining 600k subscribers. Last February he also launched an advised podcast called Lifeline with his brother Matt, and he’s also a regular performer at several comedy clubs.

 Before the official cancellation, some protesters were getting ready to March outside of Hollywood improv the night before his show, which launched a heavy call to action on social media. He is still scheduled to perform at Hollywood Improv’s sister location in Brea California on January 13th and 14th.
