Now that formerly convicted rapist Bill Cosby has had his conviction overturned at the appellate level, what’s next for the once beloved comedian, TV star, and Jell-O Pudding pitchman? Fans (if any still exist) may get to see Coz hit the comedy circuit (although Cosby won’t see them as he’s apparently been blind due to glaucoma for several years now). Inside Edition is reporting:
Bill Cosby, 83, may be planning to go back on the road with a one-man show.
“A number of promoters have called. Comedy club owners have called. People want to see him,” Cosby’s spokesperson Andrew Wyatt told Inside Edition in an exclusive interview following Cosby’s release from prison.
The world was stunned on Wednesday after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court overturned Cosby’s conviction and let America’s
Rapist Dad walk free. Inside Edition reported on this as well:
The state’s highest court tossed Cosby’s conviction because of an agreement he had with a prior prosecutor that would have prevented Cosby from being criminally charged in the case, the ruling said.
If Cosby does go on tour, it could create a number of issues including:
- How comedy clubs will make money as no one in their right mind will buy drinks with Cosby present.
- If anyone remembers Cosby as anything other than that creepy old guy who allegedly roofied numerous women then took advantage of them.
- Whether comedy clubs are willing to pay to install bullet-proof glass to protect Cosby from the many women who are likely (at least by my estimation) ready to emasculate him for starters.
