NY Venue Still Plans Cosby Shows



    Bill Cosby at a Veterans Day ceremony, Tuesday, Nov. 11, 2014, at the The All Wars Memorial to Colored Soldiers and Sailors in Philadelphia. His Vegas show was cancelled amid sex abuse allegations.

    Bill Cosby's Dec. 6 shows at New York's Tarrytown Music Hall are going on as scheduled.

    Executive Director Bjorn Olsson tells the Journal News that some patrons with tickets have informed the suburban venue that they won't be there.

    Olsson said the nonprofit that operates the hall could be liable for Cosby's fee if the sold-out afternoon and evening shows were cancelled.

    Cosby shows in some other states have been canceled after women came forward alleging he sexually assaulted them many years ago. But more than 30 shows remain on his schedule through May 2015.

    Cosby's representative issued a statement Sunday dismissing the decades-old accusations. His attorney has specifically denied allegations raised by four women.
