Bill Cosby Shows in Tarrytown Cancelled: Most Customers Asked for Money Back


Bill Cosby’s shows at the Tarrytown Music Hall have been cancelled. As I reported a few days ago,, most of the customers asked for refunds for the 4 and 7pm shows scheduled for this Saturday. Cosby would have been playing to very empty houses. The final straw came with the filing of a lawsuit by Judy Huth, who sued Cosby saying he sexually molested her at age 15. Cosby’s lost his academic institutional connections (severed from Temple and UMass Amherst), and his career is in shambles. His only response so far has been a Tweet thanking Whoopi Goldberg for her support on “The View.” Otherwise it seems like Cosby will spend the rest of his life defending himself in court.
