Florida Audience Embraces Bill Cosby with Standing Ovation Amid New Sexual Abuse Allegations

Watch Bill Cosby shut down an unconvinced interviewer.
Despite rumors of protests and brand new allegations of sexual abuse, Bill Cosby hit the stage in Florida and walked out with an impressive standing ovation.

The 77-year-old TV and comedy icon took to the stage in front of a sold out audience at the King Center for Performing Arts in Melbourne, Florida on Friday after a slew of other venues dropped him from their schedules. His set lasted an hour and a half and kept things safe, telling stories from his childhood that left the audience in stitches.

TMZ even has video of Cosby in tears..over a particularly funny bit involving his granddaughter and Jell-O.

It seems Bill is still choosing to largely ignore the allegations against him, which are coming from 7 women that include supermodel Janice Dickinson. He told a reporter before the show he realizes people are tired of him not saying anything, “but a guy doesn’t have t answer to innuendos. People should fact check.People shouldn’t have to go through that and answer to innuendos.”
