NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Bill Cosby is planning to resume touring in the coming months. This shocking development comes after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court reversed his sexual assault conviction in June 2021. The comedian, 85, was accused by more than 60 women of groping, raping, and drugging, with separate instances as far back as 1969, as well as during the 1880s and '90s. Now, his publicist also claims that 2023 could mark the return of the comedian to the stage.
During his time on the Ohio-based WGH Talk radio station on Wednesday, December 28, the disgraced comedian teased his imminent return to the life of touring. He said, "Yes, because there’s so much fun to be had in this storytelling that I do. Years ago, maybe 10 years ago, I found it was better to say it after I write it." He was convicted of sexual assault in 2018 and was sentenced to serve a three-to10-year sentence in prison. Let's take a look at his accusers and where they are now.
