Bill Cosby Releases Statement, Says He’s ‘Far From Finished

Bill Cosby

Despite dealing with backlash during his recent stand-up show in Canada, Bill Cosby is determined to press forward with his latest North American comedy tour.

The embattled comedian released a statement just two days after his Feb.6 performance in Worcester, Mass. was canceled with the president and CEO of the theater admitting he was “relieved.”

Cosby’s statement read:

“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 theater staff, the event organizers and the Colorado Community for your continued support and coming to experience family, fun entertainment.”

Cosby finished with a reference to his “Fat Albert” TV show and his 2013 Comedy Central special, respectively:

“Hey, Hey, Hey — I’m Far From Finished.”

Cosby is currently scheduled to play two shows at the Buell Theatre on Jan. 17. Both shows are still scheduled to continue, but per KUSA, Tickermaster is currently offering refunds for those who no longer want to attend.

To date,  more than 20 women have come forth to accuse the 77-year-old comedic legend of drugging and raping them in past decades. Through his lawyer, Cosby has denied the allegations. He has not been charged with a crime.
