WARREN, Ohio (AP) – Two of Bill Cosby’s upcoming shows have been canceled, but his promoter says three other dates this month remain on the comedian’s schedule.

Cosby’s upcoming shows in Warren, Ohio, and Lexington, Kentucky, have been canceled. Promoter Carlos Larraz said in an email Monday that he, Cosby and the venues mutually agreed to the cancellations. Four of Cosby’s shows last month also were canceled.

Larraz said upcoming shows in Wheeling, West Virginia, Charleston, West Virginia, and Baltimore remain on Cosby’s schedule.

Cosby has become a target of criticism and canceled shows as the number of women who have accused the 77-year-old comedian of drugging and sexually assaulting them has grown. Cosby has denied the allegations through an attorney, and no criminal charges have been filed against him.
