The controversial comedian Bill Cosby is planning a return to stand-up comedy more than a year after he left prison. Cosby who allegedly abused nearly 60 women over multiple decades, claims that he enjoys storytelling and wants to begin touring again in 2023. The comedian has been accused of sexual assault multiple times. However, even after all these accusations, Bill Cosby continued to plead non-guilty. He even went on to claim that the jury was biased and was a part of some kind of conspiracy against him.
In June 2021, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court overturned his conviction and he was once again free after serving nearly three years of his ten-year sentence. And now the American comedian is planning to return to the stage. However, people don’t seem too excited about his prison stories.

Bill Cosby is Planning a Comeback in 2023
More than a year after coming out of prison, Bill Cosby is planning his comeback. In his recent interview with WGH Talk Radio, he made the revelation saying that he still enjoys storytelling. He said, “Yes. Yes because there’s so much fun to be had in this storytelling that I do.”
Cosby further said, “Years ago, maybe 10 years ago, I found it was better to say it after I write it.” The Hollywood Reporter also confirmed the news from his publicist Andrew Wyatt. He confirmed that the comedian is actually planning a tour in the Spring or Summer of 2023.
“We’re looking at getting back out here around Spring/Summer of 2023,” Wyatt confirmed. During his interview, the Little Bill star said that he wants to perform and be the Bill Cosby people know. However, seems like people are not really looking forward to a Bill Cosby stand-up anytime soon.
The Cosby Show star has been accused of sexual assault and was convicted of 10 years imprisonment in 2018. However, his conviction was overturned by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court in June 2021 and he was able to walk free once again.

The Twisted Life-Story of Bill Cosby
The comedian, once known as ‘America’s Dad,’ lost his reputation after being accused of sexual assault by Andrea Constand in 2005. Constand was a staff member of Casy’s former university and claimed that the comedian drugged and molested her at his home.
After she decided to file a civil case against the Ghost Dad star, thirteen women also came forward as witnesses for her case. Cosby denied the allegations. The case was settled out of the court for an undisclosed sum in 2006.
Followed by this case, more than 50 women came out with allegations. However, most of these cases fall outside of the statutes of limitations. Soon court papers from Andrea Constand’s case were made public and revealed that Bill Cosby admitted to drugging and assaulting women.
The retrial of Andrea Constand’s case began on 9 April 2018 in Pennsylvania. The jury convicted him of three counts of sexual assault and months later he was sentenced to three to 10 years in prison.
However, in June 2021, Pennsylvania Supreme Court overturned his conviction claiming that his case should not have been put on trial as he already reached an agreement with the prosecutor under the 2005 case.
Earlier this month, Cosby was once again accused of misconduct by five women. However, his publicist Andrew Wyatt has called these charges “frivolous” and claimed that the five women are also among the “parade of accusers” who earlier accused the comedian.
