For the first time in three years, Bill Cosby is entertaining during a live performance. 

The embattled comedian who has faced sexual assault charges performed on Monday at the LaRose Jazz Club in Philadelphia. Cosby delivered a comedy act as part of a night honoring jazz musician Tony Williams. 

Cosby could be returning to the courtroom as prosecutors are pressing charges again against the comedian after his first trial ended in a mistrial in 2017. Jury selection for Cosby's case begins on March 29. 

Nearly 50 women have come forward accusing Cosby of sexual misconduct since the mid-1960s. 

NPR reporter Bobby Allyn was in attendance Monday at Cosby's performance.
