Once beloved and now embattled comedian, Bill Cosby, is not giving up on his career amid the ever growing controversy that has surrounded him since the fall after more than 20 women came forward with allegations of sexual assault spanning back several decades.

While Cosby has remained mostly silent throughout the scandal, he broke his silence to reassure fans that his shows will go on in a clip that aired on ABC’s Good Morning America on Monday March 9.

In what has become custom in any messages from the actor/comedian, he didn’t mention the allegations or his legal woes in the clip and instead kept things upbeat and funny, penning a note along with the video stating, “Dear Fans, I hope you enjoy my wonderful video message that’s filled with laughter… Hey, hey, hey, I’m far from finished.”

In the video Cosby appears to be chatting on the phone with someone discussing an upcoming comedy gig. He states, “Yes, I’m going to be in Wheeling, West Virginia, Capitol Music Hall. 8 o’clock show, that’s right. You know I’ll be hilarious. Can’t wait.”

Cosby has continued performing, even as more and more women come forward, and has received mostly warm welcomes at venues aside from a few protesters. However some of his scheduled dates have been outright canceled by venues who don’t wish to support Cosby while the investigation continues.

Cosby has three performances scheduled for March and in May continues his tour in Atlanta.
