Bill Cosby releases brief video touting comedy concert

NEW YORK (AP) — 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-colored pajamas, as he speaks into a phone in the 10-second spot released Monday.

In the one-way conversation, Cosby says, “I’ll be hilarious,” then adds, “Can’t wait.”

He’s far from finished, Cosby says in the note, invoking 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 the allegations through his attorneys.
