Bill Cosby Wants to Do Comedy Tour Again, Making Docuseries
Fresh out of jail, Bill Cosby is already working on a docuseries about himself, and plotting a return to standup comedy.
Cosby's rep, Andrew Wyatt says the comedian, at 83-years-old, wants to hit the road and tell jokes, and his reps have contacted several promoters and comedy clubs who they say are open to the idea.
Despite widespread backlash and outrage over his prison release, Wyatt claims, "The world wants to see Mr. Cosby."
Cosby is working on a 5-part docuseries covering his life, legacy, trial and prison experience -- and he'll be sitting down soon to do his interview for the project.
So far, producers of the series have shot interviews with Cosby's family, friends and other celebs.
Cosby was released from prison last week after Pennsylvania's high court overturned his sexual assault conviction.
Cosby also wants to go around the country making appearances in prisons, schools and neighborhoods, talking to folks about being better citizens and curbing violence.
Cosby's rep says the inspiration for a speaking tour draws from Cosby's own experiences behind bars, where he heard moving stories from other inmates, like a father and son serving time together.
