Yesterday, Bill Cosby received a strong vote of confidence from his former tv wife Phylicia Rashad. That support followed him to his latest stand-up show in Toronto Canada.
Cosby recieved a standing ovation from the crowd, despite protests that were going on outside the venue. This was Cosby’s first live performance since November,
The Cosby Show star personally thanked fans “for giving me the opportunity to bring laughter back into your lives”.
He told the Ontario audience he had had “a wonderful time”.
The 77-year-old has been accused by at least 15 women of sexual assault dating back to the ’70s and ’80s. Three more victims came forward on Wednesday.
Cosby’s lawyer made no immediate response to the latest accusations. The star, who has not been charged, has denied previous claims, calling them “fantastical” and “uncorroborated”.
More than a dozen protestors gathered outside the Centre in the Square on Wednesday with placards stating ‘rape is no joke’. Some barred the entrance to the venue, before being asked to move by security.
