Bill Cosby show canceled at Arizona casino

"We regret any inconvenience to our guests over this cancellation," said Treena Parvello, a spokeswoman for the casino, according to the Tucson Sentinel. Casino representatives didn't give a reason for calling off the show, which was part of Cosby's "Bill Cosby 77" tour.

Those who purchased tickets with a credit card will automatically be refunded, and those who paid in cash can return to get a refund at the casino.

This is the latest in a number of Cosby projects to be scrapped or postponed in the wake of a growing number of sexual assault accusations made against him. Netflix postponed a stand-up comedy special, NBC scrapped a TV series it had in development and TV Land pulled reruns of "The Cosby Show" from its lineup.

Cosby has refused to comment on the charges.
