The Partnership with Dana Goodman
Wolov’s stand-up comedy act gained a further boost after partnering with Dana Goodman, a fellow comedian. She met Goodman in 1995 at the Improv Olympics in Chicago. Both of them loved the same kind of humor and soon became close friends.
Wolov and Goodman worked together, slowly trying to find their way in show business, until they were discovered by Hollywood star, Adam Sandler at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in 2002. Coincidentally, the sexual harassment episode by Louis C.K. took place after a show at the same venue. They have also worked together on an MTV show called Faking It in 2013 and an animated comedy show Biatches on Comedy Central in 2014.
There were also plans for the duo to star in an autobiographical comedy series titled Dana & Julia on TV Land, but the show hasn’t aired yet. Wolov and Goodman are reportedly working on a project for ABC Studios.
Sexual Misconduct Accusations Made Public
Both Julia Wolov and Dana Goodman were present in the room where the sexual harassment by Louis C.K. took place.
The duo said that the comedian they had admired invited them to his hotel room. And as soon as they sat in the room, still in their winter jackets and hats, Louis C.K. asked if he could take out his penis, the women told The New York Times. They laughed at what he said thinking it to be a joke.
“And then he really did it,” Goodman said. “He proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating.”
They also revealed that after a feeling of paralysis overwhelmed them initially, they ran out of the room. Louis C.K. called out after they left, saying “Which one is Dana and which one is Julia?”
Wolov and Goodman immediately told several people of the incident but received a strong negative reaction from everyone whom they confided in.
“Guys were backing away from us. We could already feel the backlash,” said Wolov.
Julia Wolov and Dana Goodman also said that Dave Becky, Louis C.K.’s manager, threatened them to stop talking about the incident. However, Mr. Becky denied the allegations.
