Cosby performs in The Bahamas
NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) – Bill Cosby has taken his comedy show on the road in The Bahamas as controversy surrounds him at home.
The 77-year-old entertainer performed yesterday in a small theatre at the Atlantis resort in a benefit for a women’s service organisation.
Cosby made no mention of the allegations of sexual assault by several women that have resurfaced in recent days. He stuck to his routine, including stories about his childhood growing up in the projects of Philadelphia.
There were few empty seats in the house and a few people gave him an ovation when he finished his set.
Some in the audience said the allegations against Cosby remain unproven and they added that his performance was a benefit for what they felt was a good cause.
