Bill Cosby did his first comedy routine since 2015, when more than 60 women began to accuse him of sexual assault and abuse, according to Page Six.

Page Six reports that the small crowd at the LaRose Jazz Club in Philadelphia was largely sympathetic, and that he didn’t talk about the accusations. Bill Cosby Shows His Support For Philadelphia Eagles In Rare Appearance

Cosby, 80, quit performing when he could no longer tell jokes without being interrupted or heckled by audience members. He stuck to familiar lines about his family, his host city and his personal challenge of losing his sight. The Tony Williams Jazz Quartet shared the stage with Cosby, according to Page Six.

Cosby is expected to be back on court on April 2 for a retrial in which he is accused of sexually assaulting a woman in 2004. The last trial ended in a hung jury.
