Bill Cosby will be performing tonight in public for the first time since his case against Andrea Constand was declared a mistrial last June, and we’re told he’ll be open to questions from fans.
Reps for the 80-year-old comedian tell The Blast Cosby is returning to the stage Monday for a special performance honoring Jazz legend Tony Williams.
The event, which will take place at the LaRosa Jazz Club in Philadelphia, PA will give Cosby a chance to participate in the live performance with the Tony Williams Jazz Quartet, and then also perform a special comedy concert for his fans. Sources close to Cosby tell us he will actually play the drums with the band, and may jump in for a little smooth bass.
We’re told his comedy show will be similar to the show he put on a couple years ago — where he told life stories mixed with jokes — and will also open himself up to questions from the audience afterwards, and possibly a full on meet and greet.
Over the weekend, Cosby was walking around Philly decked out in Eagles gear … possibly gauging the public’s temperature before announcing the comeback gig.
Cosby’s retrial begins jury selection in March.
