Bill Cosby told a woman to "be careful" about drinking around him at a stand-up show last night

The comedian appears to have been making light of his recent sexual assault allegations.

LAST NIGHT, BILL Cosby played the second of three scheduled stand-up shows in Canada.

The show took place in Ontario and attracted numerous protesters who opposed the theatre’s decision to allow Cosby to perform in light of his recent rape allegations.

While the show appears to have gone reasonably well for the most part, there is one incident that has got everyone talking.

During the show, a drunk female audience member apparently interrupted Cosby’s set.

According to journalists who were present at the show, this is how Cosby opted to respond:

It was apparently the second time Cosby had made the remark over the course of the performance.

A man was ejected from the show after calling yelling, “You are a rapist!” at Cosby.

Otherwise, Cosby received a standing ovation from the crowd. After the show, the comedian released a statement in which he addressed the incident.

Dear Fans: One outburst but over 2600 loyal, patient and courageous fans enjoyed the most wonderful medicine that exist for human-kind. Laughter. I thank you, the theatre staff (Budweiser Gardens), the event organizers and the London, ON Community for your continued honor and support. I’m Far From Finished.

Since October, at least thirty women have come forward making accusing the comedian of sexual assault. Cosby has vehemently denied all allegations in statements issued through his attorney, but has yet to directly address them himself.

His decision to make light of the allegations last night has not sat well with many.

The comedian will play the final of his three shows in Canada tonight.
