By Daniel Wallis DENVER (Reuters) - Bill Cosby thanked hundreds of fans who turned out for shows in Denver on Saturday as a small gathering of protesters outside the theater denounced the comedian, who has been accused of sexual assault by more than a dozen women in the past three months. The star of NBC hit 1980s family sitcom "The Cosby Show" denies the allegations, many of which are decades old and fall outside the statute of limitations for criminal or civil cases. His lawyer has called the claims "discredited" and "defamatory." Cosby has never been charged over any of the allegations. Outside the Buell Theatre in downtown Denver, about 40 protesters chanted "No more jokes!" and some pointed and shouted "Shame on you!" and "Rape supporters!" at ticket holders as they lined up to get in for the first of two shows.
