Bill Cosby Reveals He’s Considering Plans For 2023 Comedy Tour
It looks like Bill Cosby is ready to rejoin the comedy circuit. On Wednesday, he gave the host of WGH Talk a “yes” when asked if he plans to tour again in 2023.
“Yes. Yes. because there’s so much fun to be had in this storytelling that I do,” Cosby said. “Years ago, maybe 10 years ago, I found that it was better to say it after I write it.”
The 85-year-old was convicted of criminal sex assault in April 2018. Then, the Penslyvannia Supreme Court overturned the conviction in 2021. Back in June, he shared an Instagram post commemorating the one-year date of his release.
“After two years and 10 months fighting for my life and the truth, one year of freedom home with my family looks good on me (at least that’s what my wife says,” Bill wrote.
Still, the accusations of assault stand firm. In early December, five women filed a new sexual assault lawsuit against Bill Cosby and NBC. Filed in New York, four women say Cosby forced sexual acts or raped them between the1980s pr 1990. While the fifth woman says, Cosby raped her in 1969. The comedian’s rep Andrew Wyatt labeled the suit “frivolous.”
Wyatt also confirmed to Variety that the former actor’s plans to tour are legit. He said that Cosby is “looking at spring/summer to start touring.”
The tour could also be in response to the $500,000 damages award Cosby owes Judy Huth. Judy won a civil case against Bill in June, in which she accused him of sexually assaulting her as a 16-year-old in 1975.
At the time of the ruling, Wyatt said Huth “will never receive a payday from Mr. Cosby.” He also claimed Huth owed her legal team more than $3 million, which Judy’s lawyer, Gloria Allred, later denied.
“Mr. Cosby’s spokesperson appears to be trying to snatch victory from the jaws of Mr. Cosby’s significant defeat. Ms. Huth has no legal bills for fees with my law firm.”
Twitter Users React To Bill Cosby Considering Tour In 2023
Following Cosby’s lil’ surprise announcement, folks on Twitter started pouring over it. Tweets highlighted multiple angles, from congrats to ticket sales, cancel culture, and his ‘audacity’–given the accusations that have reportedly come from more than 50 women since 2005.
Bill Cosby is going on tour. Louis CK and Chris D’Elia are already on tour. Trevor Bauer is back in MLB. Donald Trump is running for President again. Matt Gaetz retained his seat. Brett Kavanaugh is a Supreme Court Justice.
Tell me again how cancel culture has gone too far?

It’s so wild how Bill Cosby was acting blind and feeble during his trial and now he’s back to returning to tour since he’s out. I hope people show up and heckle him again.
