Bill Cosby's show in Ohio draws a few protesters

The Associated Press

SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) Bill Cosby's stand-up tour has stopped in northern Ohio, where it drew several protesters before the show. The comedian himself received standing ovations before and after his performance.

Police in Sandusky had extra officers at the theater while Cosby performed Friday night.

The 77-year-old face sexual assault accusations from at least 15 women, with some of the claims dating back decades. He denies the allegations and has never been charged with a crime.

Bev Penfield was holding a sign reading "Respect women, rape is no joke." She tells The Blade (http://bit.ly/1683JDs ) she felt she had to be there. Protester Cece Hesch says it's about valuing entertainment over "doing the right thing."

Cosby's performances in other states have drawn protests; some have been canceled.

He didn't address the allegations during the show.
