Bill Cosby's appearances at casinos in Las Vegas and Tucson, Arizona have been canceled amid widening allegations of sexual assault.

Officials at the Treasure Island hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip say they've mutually agreed with comedian Bill Cosby to cancel his upcoming performance.

Treasure Island spokeswoman Michelle Knoll said "it wasn't a good time" for the Nov. 28 performance. She added that ticket holders will be given refunds.

No reason was given by Diamond Desert Casino in Tucson, Arizona for the canceled Feb. 15 show.

In the past week, numerous allegations of sexual abuse by Cosby from a number of women have led to canceled interviews and NBC and Netflix projects. "The Cosby Show" also was pulled off the air on TV Land. Cosby issued a statement Sunday discrediting decades-old accusations and his attorney has denied four of the allegations.

Thursday night, he appeared in Bahamas at a benefit for a women's service organization.

Including an appearance in Melbourne, Florida tonight, Cosby is slated to perform at least 36 shows between now and May 2015.
