Bill Cosby had grand plans to celebrate his release and get back to his life with family and friends. In July, TMZ reported that the newly freed television icon was eager to get back into the world and reclaim his narrative by announcing a Comedy Tour. Despite the Comedy Cellar, a famous comedy club in NYC, refusing to book the comedian, many promoters and venues have reached out to Cosby’s team with interest.
Along with the Comedy Tour, Bill Cosby planned to release a five-part docuseries where the comedian and actor would detail his life and legacy and make appearances in prisons, schools, and neighborhoods, talking to individuals about being better citizens reducing violence.
According To Cosby’s rep, Andrew Wyatt, the TV dad, has already filmed interviews for his documentary, which will also include family, friends, and other celebrities. Despite everything that has transpired over the last few years, Wyatt insists, “The world wants to see Mr. Cosby.”
Well, it looks like the 83-year-old’s plans to tour the world have been halted indefinitely due to a lawsuit issued by Judy Huth. Huth is one of the many women who have accused Cosby in the past. Huth filed her claim back in 2014.
According to Huth, Bill Cosby “pounced” on her at the Playboy mansion when she was only 15 years old in 1974. Huth’s civil lawsuit is scheduled to go to trial in Spring 2022. As a result, Bill Cosby has been forced to postpone his tour out of fear that the trial will overshadow it. As a result, those waiting to see Cosby live will have to wait a bit longer.
