    The comedy club at Foxwoods Resort Casino has postponed Bill Cosby's upcoming show scheduled for Jan. 31, 2015.

    Comix Comedy indefinitely postponed his Grand Theater performance, according to Marc Wiesenthal, of Comix Entertainment.

    NBC Connecticut inquired about the reason for the decision, but the comedy club has not provided a response as to the reasoning at this time.

    Foxwoods joins several other venues canceling Cosby's scheduled performances following sexual assault allegations against him, according to NBC News. It has not been confirmed that the claims prompted the Connecticut postponement.

    Cosby's attorney issued a statement refuting the accusations against his client.

    "The new, never-before-heard claims from women...have escalated far past the point of absurdity," Attorney Martin D. Singer said. "These brand new claims about alleged decades-old events are becoming increasingly ridiculous."

    Cosby most recently performed in Florida Friday night as part of his comedy tour and was received with a standing ovation, according to the Associated Press. 

    No new date has been scheduled at this time for him to perform at Foxwoods.

    Comix Comedy will notify ticket-holders and provide refunds "on an expedited basis," Wiesenthal said.
