Bill Cosby, the legendary comedian and TV actor, has cancelled his two scheduled appearances this weekend at the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts.

The actor's management issued the following statement: "Bill Cosby is unable to make this date due to an unavoidable personal situation."

Cosby had been scheduled to make two performances of his stage show on Sunday.

A Cerritos spokeswoman said in an e-mail that the center will be working with Cosby to reschedule a new date.

"Our Ticket Office will be calling and e-mailing all ticket holders with this information, and will contact them again once the date has been rescheduled," said the spokeswoman.

Cosby, 72, regularly tours the country with his stage comedy acts. In October, he is scheduled to receive the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor in Washington.
