The two forces standing between Louis C.K. and the abrupt comeback he appears to be mounting are the gatekeepers and the public. A small sample of both groups spoke out recently; the Comedy Cellar, which continued its longstanding relationship with Louis C.K. by welcoming him back Sunday night, and the audience at the show who laughed at his jokes. Now that precedent has been established, further gatekeepers will surely follow suit, with further audiences lapping it up.

Luckily, for the general public who prefers comedians who have never furthered their own careers at the expense of female colleagues’ dignity and self-worth, there are plenty of other options to turn to instead for comedy.

Inspired by the above tweet from comedian and podcast mogul Jesse Thorn, here is a list of 51 comedians who, as far as Fast Company is aware, have never forced anyone to watch them masturbate, and who deserve a percentage of the attention Louis C.K. is about to receive.
