Despite canceling multiple shows and facing dozens of sexual assault allegations, Bill Cosby has no intention of leaving the limelight.

The 77-year-old actor, who is scheduled to perform his stand-up set in Lafayette, Louisiana, on Friday, released a statement this week insisting that he's "far from finished" with his career.

"For 53 years you have given me your love, support, respect and trust," he said in a statement to fans, released through a rep. "Thank you! I can’t wait to see your smiling faces and warm your hearts with a wonderful gift -- LAUGHTER. I’m ready!"

“I thank you, the theatre staff (Heymann Performing Arts Center), the event organizers and the Lafayette Community for your continued support and coming to experience family, fun entertainment," Cosby said. "Hey, Hey, Hey -- I’m far from finished.”

Cosby's statement comes just days after yet another woman launched allegations of sexual assualt. On Tuesday, former model Heidi Thomas told CNN that, in 1984, she had a glass of wine and awoke to Cosby “forcing himself in [her] mouth."

More than 30 women have accused the actor of sexual assault, but Cosby and his lawyers continue to deny all claims.

Request for comment made to Cosby's lawyer has ret to be returned at this time.
