Well, Bill Cosby seems to be doing OK, considering his current situation.

The comedian, who has been in the middle of a lot of controversy in recent months (as you probably know), reportedly poked fun at his ongoing sexual assault allegations during his stand-up routine in London, Ontario, tonight.

At one point during his Budweiser Gardens appearance, Cosby saw a woman exiting the front row and asked where she was going. She responded that she was going to grab a drink and asked if he'd like one (oh, that's nice).

Cosby reportedly replied, "I already have one," pointing to a bottle of water next to him on stage, and added, "You have to be careful about drinking around me."

His joke cued some gasps which was followed by claps and laughter.

However, not everyone was amused. Two men were also ejected from the show after one of them yelled, "We don't love you, Bill!" As security pulled him away, the man screamed, "You are a rapist. I'm being ejected because you are a rapist."

The audience booed the man until Cosby urged them to stop. In fact, Cosby faced a largely receptive audience on the second day of his short Canadian tour.

The crowd cheered loudly when he first entered the stage just after 7:30 p.m., and laughed throughout his entire show. At the end of the nearly two-hour set, the audience rose and gave him a standing ovation.
