TURLOCK, Calif. (AP) - Bill Cosby has performed a sold-out show in the Central California town of Turlock, where he was greeted warmly and left with a standing ovation.

The Modesto Bee reports only one protester showed up to Cosby's performance at the Turlock Community Theatre on Sunday. Suzette Sims, who held a sign that read "I Believe The Women," said she was disappointed there weren't more protesters but she said she felt she had to stand up for Cosby's accusers.

The 77-year-old comedian is facing sexual assault accusations from at least 15 women, with some of the claims dating back decades. He has denied the allegations through his attorney and has never been charged with a crime.

Cosby's stand-up tour stop in Turlock was booked months before the controversy began.
