Bill Cosby has been accused, by more than two dozen women, of sexual assault but that hasn’t stopped him from doing his stand up comedy performances.
During one of his shows on Thursday in Canada, a woman near the front of the audience got up and Cosby — like most comedians do — singled her out and asked where she was going. She responded by telling Dr. Hux that she was going to get a drink and offered to get one for him as well.
He said no, he already had one (a bottle of water). Then he continued “You have to be careful about drinking around me.”

Clearly, Cosby was making a reference to those two dozen or so women who claim he drugged them before sexually assaulting them.
According to reports, the crowds reaction was shock at first, followed by laughter and applause. The 77-year old comedian also received a standing ovation at the close of his set.
Not everyone loved him, though.
Two men were removed from the venue for being disruptive. One screamed “we don’t love you, Bill,” which seems like an excessive punishment for the crime. Also, why go to the show if you don’t love him? Maybe just to make your point? Well played, patron.
Another man was ejected after he skipped the sugar coating and went straight to the point.
“You are a rapist. I’m being ejected because you are a rapist.”
Obviously, he is innocent until proven guilty in these great States, but you would have to think where there is smoke, there is fire, right? As the great Katt Williams once said, “F*ck a setup. Don’t nobody say the same shit about you for twenty goddamn years.”
