The ‘Cosby Show’ actor reportedly considers to return to the stage for a new comedy tour after his rape conviction is overturned at the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
AceShowbiz -Newly-freed funnyman Bill Cosby is weighing up offers to make his onstage comeback with a comedy tour.
The disgraced actor was released from prison on 30 June (21), hours after judges at the Pennsylvania Supreme Court cited legal technicalities as they tossed out his 2018 conviction for drugging and sexually assaulting Temple University staff member Andrea Constand at his home in 2004.
Now Cosby’s spokesman, Andrew Wyatt, has revealed the 83 year old is considering a potential return to the road.
He told U.S. news show Inside Edition, “A number of promoters have called. Comedy club owners have called. People want to see him.”
“The Cosby Show” star had served more than two years of a three-to-10 year sentence for the Constand case.
He has also been accused of sexual misconduct and worse by dozens more women in recent years, but he has always maintained his innocence.
The actor/comedian recently returned to Twitter to defend one of his supporters Phylicia Rashad.
Rashad, Cosby’s TV wife on “The Cosby Show”, came under fire for celebrating the overturning of his rape conviction. “FINALLY!!!! A terrible wrong is being righted- a miscarriage of justice is corrected!” she wrote in a post which has since been deleted.
As students at Howard University, where she served as the dean of Fine Arts College, called for her firing, Cosby cited freedom of speech in support of the actress.
He also thanked singer/actress Stephanie Mills who asked the university officials to return his donation if they wanted to fire Rashad.
