Bill Cosby has vowed to keep moving forward even as some venues withdraw their support of his tour and projects.
The show must go on, but not without a few words from Bill.
Hours after a theater in Worcester, Massachusetts, pulled the plug on his stop there for the Hello Friend comedy tour, Bill put out a statement to let his remaining supporters know that he’s looking forward to the next show in Colorado.
He didn’t outright call the Massachusetts venue cowardly for shutting down his show, but he did imply that the audience in Colorado was braver for holding the upcoming tour date.
“Dear Fans: I have thousands of loyal, patient and courageous fans that are going to leave their homes to enjoy an evening of laughter and return home feeling wonderful. I’m ready!
I thank you, the theatre staff, the event organizers and the Colorado Community for your continued support and coming to experience family, fun entertainment.”
In conclusion, he used the title of his 2013 standup special, stating, “Hey, Hey, Hey–I’m far from finished.”
We’re not sure how his fans in Massachusetts are feeling about this development. Given the fall out from his resurfaced sex scandal it might be for the best since he’s had to face a number of hecklers at his shows.
