BOSTON (WTNH) — Bill Cosby did not appear in Boston Sunday night for a planned stand-up comedy show.

He was set to appear at The Wilbur Theater, but hours before the show the theater announced the cancellation on its website. The theater also promised to refund the price of the tickets.

No reason has been given for the cancellation, but protests were expected to be held outside the theater. All this comes as Bill Cosby has been accused of sexually assaulting more than a dozen women. Cosby has denied all the accusations and has not been charged with a crime.
