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.”
Top Five Moments From The 2018 SAG Awards
Celebrities filled the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on Sunday night for the 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards and the night was full of great moments. Here are the top highlights from the show.
It was a big night for Sterling K. Brown who made history after becoming the first Black actor to win the category for Outstanding Performance by a Male in a Drama Series. Brown not only took home the award for his role on NBC’s This Is Us, but he also received a second SAG award for Best Ensemble.
Morgan Freeman was the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award, making a seemingly short and awkward speech. While receiving the honor, he called out an audience member for talking.
“Hey … I’m talking to you. Yeah, hey,” the 80-year-old said. “Okay, well you just stand out to me. That’s all.” Freeman then explained, “These moments in one’s life usually will call for an entire litany of thank yous.”
And we’ve said it before and we will say it again, Olivia Munn and Niecy Nash need their own show. The pair provided comedic relief yet again while announcing the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male in a Drama Series.
When discussing who gets to announce the winner, Nash explained she gets to say Sterling’s name if he when’s because “he’s Black.” She did however explain Munn “can say anyone who is Asian who is nominated.”
