Bill Cosby Talent Agency Hosts Fewer Auditions

     Falling faster than the number of female auditions at a Bill Cosby talent agency are female auditions at Bill Cosby’s talent agency where aspiring young actors and models are passing on career advice from the entertainment legend due to concerns for personal safety.

Revelations about waning interest in Cosby’s theatrical instruction come after a judge ruled that three counts of aggravated indecent assault can proceed to trial against Cosby sometime in the following year.

Questions surrounding Cosby’s solvency are starting to arise as bribes, settlements, and mounting attorney fees weigh heavily on the actor/comedian’s fortune once thought to be worth $400 million.

Kevin Underman, business manager and CEO of Cosby’s production company “Take-A-Sip Talent”  is bleak on future prospects for his boss’s once exclusive entertainment empire.

“Despite fifty years of rape allegations the fact that we’ve been hemorrhaging money for ten years is a relatively new story for the news media,” said Underman, referencing the 2005 deposition where Cosby first admitted to giving women sedatives and messing with their privates.

Financial and legal experts question whether the star’s current earnings can keep pace with expenses from large legal settlements. “I burn up the phones looking for new talent,” Underman continued, “but most prospects cite mental images of Bill crawling over their drug-induced, comatose bodies as reasons for seeking out competing agencies.”

Cosby, in spite of numerous civil and criminal sexual assault complaints, maintains an active performance and speaking schedule within the entertainment and academic communities due to the majority of his victims being white.
