Bill Cosby’s Massachusetts Show Canceled, What The Theater’s President Is Telling HipHollywood



Despite Bill Cosby’s recent sex abuse scandal, the comedian has been taking the stage city after city for his current comedy tour. And while many venues have put the comedian’s recent allegations behind them, others aren’t being so open.

It was announced on Wednesday that Cosby’s show at the Hanover Theater in Worcester Massachusetts on February 6th has been canceled. “I do think we are relieved. It’s not a situation anybody wanted to be in, but our image in the community means a lot to us and I know that there are those who will be relieved not to see him appear here,” President and Chief Executive Officer Troy Siebels told HipHollywood.

Cosby’s show at Boston’s Wilbur Theatre on the 8th will go on as planned, but there are reports that critics will protest.

Dozens of women have come forward over the past several months claiming that Cosby sexually assaulted and or drugged them decades ago. A video interview from 1991 recently resurfaced (yet again) of Cosby joking with Larry King about the “Spanish Fly,” a pill from back in the day was an aphrodisiac … but the interview floating around has fans even more up in arms. “Spanish Fly was the thing that all boys from age 11 on up to death — We will still be searching for Spanish Fly,” Cosby said. “And what was the old – the old story was, if you took a little drop – it was on the head of a.”

King chimed in, knowing exactly what Bill was talking about. “That’s right. Drop it in her Coca-Cola – It don’t matter,” Larry explained. Bill commented back, “It doesn’t make any difference. And the girl would drink it and …” King finally added, “And she’s yours.”


Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”



It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
