Bill Cosby has been continuing on with his comedy tour amid the recent sex abuse scandal and it turns out, the comedian has been an absolute hit.
Earlier this week, Cosby received a standing ovation during his show at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas and on Friday night, after a perceived stellar performance at the Maxwell C. King Center for the Performing Arts at Eastern Florida State College in Melbourne, the comedian received another standing O.
After six venues announced that they were canceling Cosby’s shows, the 77-year-old still took the stage and left his personal woes at the door. But the comedian at one point broke into tears … Don’t get too excited, it wasn’t about all the shocking allegations that have seemingly tarnished his reputation. During his set, Bill cried fake tears while talking about Jello and his granddaughter’s birthday party.
There have been more than a handful of women who have come forward alleging that Cosby drugged and raped them 30, 40, even 50 years ago. The comedian’s lawyer, Marty Singer has been fed up with the “false” accusations, releasing this statement to HipHollywood on Friday evening:
“The new, never-before-heard claims from women who have come forward in the past two weeks with unsubstantiated, fantastical stories about things they say occurred 30, 40, or even 50 years ago have escalated far past the point of absurdity.” He added, “It is long past time for this media vilification of Mr. Cosby to stop.”
