RBTL sent out an e-mail this morning announcing pre-sale tickets for Cosby's April 25 appearance at the Auditorium Theatre. Cosby has been under fire from all directions in recent weeks for the alleged sexual assault of numerous women. The latest to come forward is supermodel Janice Dickinson.
Cosby has been cancelling appearances in light of the allegations. An attorney for Cosby has said that the allegations are decades old and discredited.
RBTL spokesperson Jessica Ripple says that RBTL's role in the Cosby appearance is minimal; in this case, a national promoter simply booked Cosby into RBTL.
"We're literally just a venue for most of our one-night shows," she says.
Bill Cosby, at least for the moment, is scheduled to appear in Rochester next April. Discuss.
