Cosby performs for first time since assault charge
    2018-01-25  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

DISGRACED American entertainer Bill Cosby returned to the stage Monday for the first time in nearly three years, telling jokes just months before his scheduled retrial for alleged sexual assault.

The 80-year-old pioneering African American actor and comedian spent around an hour performing at the LaRose Jazz Club in Philadelphia at an event honoring drummer and jazz great, Tony Williams.

There was no heckling and the audience was generally supportive, clapping and at times laughing, but the fewer than 50 people, filling only half a small venue underscored how far he has fallen from grace.

Announcing the event only shortly before it was due to begin, his spokesman said the intention was to “honor his fans with a historic performance” at what was a public event with tickets sold on the door.

It was the first time Cosby performed in public since May 2015, when CNN reported that he was interrupted twice in Atlanta after a string of women had already come forward to accuse him of sexual assault. (SD-Agencies)
