Bill Cosby Still Coming To Boston
After months of controversy and canceled shows, Bill Cosby is still set to perform at the Wilbur Theater in Boston.
Since the Bill Cosby saga first broke, we’ve been keeping an eye on two local stops on his nationwide tour…Worcester and Boston.
According to the Boston Globe, Cosby canceled his Feb. 6 stand-up comedy show at the Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts in Worcester following the building pressure from protesters and media.
However, the comedian’s two scheduled shows for Feb. 8 at the Wilbur are still going on as scheduled despite a planned demonstration for the event gaining steam on social media.
Some of his other shows have seen outbursts from the audience. One recent show in Canada had a man yell out “You are a rapist,” and about 30 women at another show in Canada shouted “We believe the women.”
The ever-growing list of women accusing him of sexual assault has damaged Cosby’s reputation, but apparently not as much as you might think. At the same shows, Cosby received a standing ovation from the rest of the crowd, proving his fans’ loyalty to the comedy legend.
People continue to buy tickets to his shows, and other celebrities have come to Cosby’s defense, including his TV wife from “The Cosby Show” Phylicia Rashad.
There is a lot of social media buzz surrounding Cosby’s Boston show indicating that may be protests at Cosby’s show in Boston.
