Bill Cosby says he is far from finished in new video message

11 March 2015, 08:59

New York — Bill Cosby has a new video message out.

In the video released Monday, he doesn't address assault allegations made against him, but instead promotes his upcoming Saturday show in Wheeling, West Virginia.

Cosby is seated in an easy chair, dressed in fuchsia-coloured pajamas, as he speaks into a phone in the 10-second spot.

"You know I'll be hilarious," he says. "Can't wait."

A note released along with the video reads, "Dear fans, I hope you enjoy my wonderful video message that's filled with laughter... Hey, hey, hey, I'm far from finished."

His reference to "far from finished" invokes the title of his ongoing comedy tour that's seen more than a dozen shows canceled.

Since November, more than 20 women have leveled various assault accusations against Cosby. He has not been charged with a crime and he has denied some of the allegations through his attorneys.

Two of Bill Cosby's upcoming shows have been canceled, but his promoter says three other dates this month remain on the comedian's schedule.

Cosby's shows in Warren, Ohio, and Lexington, Kentucky, will not be held. Promoter Carlos Larraz said in an email Monday that he, Cosby and the venues mutually agreed to the cancellations. Four of Cosby's shows last month also were canceled.

Larraz said upcoming shows in Wheeling and Charleston, West Virginia, and Baltimore remain on Cosby's schedule.

Cosby has become a target of criticism and cancelled shows as the number of women who have accused the 77-year-old comedian of drugging and sexually assaulting them has grown. He's also being sued for defamation by three women and another woman has filed a civil suit against him, alleging he molested her when she was 15 years old.
