Bill Cosby Does First Show Since 2015 Sexual Abuse Scandal: ‘I Used To Be a Comedian’


Let’s do some non-political news, shall we?

Bill Cosby has mostly stayed out of the spotlight for the past 3 years, due to his ongoing legal troubles for his alleged sexual abuse against dozens of women. The disgraced comedian, however, appeared in Philadelphia Monday night and gave a special performance during a concert in Philadelphia in honor of jazz musician Tony Williams.

Cosby reportedly got a warm reception from the crowd as he took an hour to tell stories about his family, salute old friends, and jam with the jazz band for a set. After he got up from the drum kit and handed off the sticks to the jazz players, he drew laughs from the audience when he offered a deadpan remark about the turn his life has taken.

“I used to be a comedian,” Cosby said.

Cosby spoke to reporters after the show, where he was asked about his sexual assault retrial coming up later this year.
