According to tweets from Richard Warnica, Cosby's performance at Budweiser Gardens in London, Ontario took a pretty fucked up turn when a woman got up to get a drink and Cosby made his bizarre, gross comments. Warnica has been tweeting the show live this evening:

This guy. This fucking guy. He's such a fucking brazen son of a bitch. I'm starting to wonder if Cosby's actually beginning to enjoy this a little bit. I mean, hey, the statute of limitation is king. He's getting more media attention than he has in decades. He's getting lavish amounts of love and vocal support from his true-believer fans. He's still got hundreds of millions of dollars to play with. A wife who's still besotted by him. Co-workers and colleagues loudly championing his virtues. It's a strangely comfortable place to be for him. Weird. I think I might go stick my head in the toilet for a while and see if that doesn't make me feel better.
