Although there was a small group of protesters outside the Centre in the Square in Kitchener where Bill Cosby was performing last night, the show went off without a hitch. Some people may have opted not to come, as the auditorium was approximately 75 per cent full, but there were no hecklers as anticipated.
Cosby did not at any time during the show address the sexual abuse accusations that have been made against him, although he earlier made a statement asking audience members not to engage with hecklers. There was also an audio recording to that effect before the show began.
Audience members told the media they attended because the accusations are circumstantial and Cosby has not been charged with anything. Cosby performs tonight in London and his final show in Ontario will be in Hamilton on Friday night.
