Bill Cosby’s made media headlines for the past year, but it’s been three years since he hit the stage for good comedy show. That changed last night when he made his first public stage appearance at LaRose Jazz Club in his hometown of Philadelphia.
The man many will always remember as Cliff Huxtable attended the jazz club for a “special performance” honoring legendary saxophonist Tony Williams. While the event was very low-key, it was open for all to attend.
Cosby’s representatives told the public, “Bill Cosby [would] honor his fans with a historic performance with the Tony Williams Jazz Quartet and he will be performing a special comedy concert that will culminate the evening.”
According to E! News, Cosby “told stories during the low-key appearance at the small venue and, despite his recent drama and legal battle, was met with laughter and applause from the small but seemingly friendly crowd.”
The famed TV dad made a few personal jokes including quips about his blindness. He allegedly also made a joke to a child in the audience saying, “I used to be a comedian.”
