Bill Cosby Returning to the Stage for First Time Since Sexual Assault Mistrial

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.
