Bill Cosby Cheered In Denver as Gloria Allred Denounces his Chutzpah

Gloria Allred denver

Despite a “teach in” featuring attorney Gloria Allred and alleged victim of Bill Cosby, Beth Ferrier, the 77 year old comedian who has been accused of sexual assault by 15 women received a standing ovation following a Denver performance. Cosby, who was America’s favorite father in the 1980s with his popular program The Cosby Show, walked on stage with his signature “Hey, hey, hey, ” from Fat Albert and wore a shirt that said “Hello Friend, ” as he gave over his characteristic stand up reflections on family life. The stadium wasn’t entirely full, but there were 1, 800 people in the 2, 900 seat auditorium, and he received a standing ovation.

Meanwhile, Gloria Allred, who is representing Cosby’s victims, was barred from entering the Buell theater by a line of police. “That is one of the the most low, dirty tricks–the most transparently obvious restriction of free speech, that I have ever seen, ” Allred told ET. She and Beth Ferrier, who claims Bill Cosby sexually assaulted her, held a “Teach in and Speak Out” session in Denver’s Crawford Hotel with 75 men and women attending. Although there were far fewer there than in the audience of Cosby’s comedy show, Allred still insisted, “We are not afraid of Bill Cosby, but apparently Bill Cosby is afraid of us.” Cosby has not yet been charged for the alleged crimes.

Allred added, “It’s an important day because Bill Cosby has the chutzpah —the guts (if she means it negatively, doesn’t she mean ‘the nerve?’)–to come to Denver, of all places , to perform and to treat these allegations as a joke.”

However, there were no jokes told in Cosby’s stand up about the allegations, which were not mentioned during the hour and 40 minute performance.
