Bill Cosby is out of prison and looking to get back on the road for another comedy tour already. Just because he was let off on a technicality because he has an amazing legal team doesn’t mean he’s welcome back to the Comedy Cellar.
According to TMZ, the famous NYC standup comedy landmark has told Bill Cosby to stay away from their venue. Owner Noam Dworman tells the publication that they are not down to have Bill Cosby play a date at their club under any circumstances.
The Comedy Cellar has been known to present acts that make their patrons a bit uncomfortable, but Bill Cosby is crossing the line. The club had both Louis C.K. and Aziz Ansari play the club in 2018 after sexual misconduct allegations came out about them. Bill Cosby’s offenses are not going to get a pass where the Comedy Cellar is concerned.
Cosby was released from incarceration after it was discovered that the prosecutor used testimony which he gave during a civil trial while under the impression that they would not pursue charges on him. This was found to violate Cosby’s 5th Amendment rights, and he was released from prison.
The legendary comedian’s release from incarceration made some people happy. Others, like Kid Cudi, were quick to blast those supporters. It seems that the Comedy Cellar might be more willing to book a Kid Cudi concert than a Bill Cosby show at this point.
The 83-year-old comedian’s plans are still in play to do another comedy tour. We will have to see which venues book him for a gig at this point in his career.
