Bill Cosby joked 'Don't tase me, bro'" as he was being escorted by security officers on his way into a Philadelphia courtroom.

The actor and comedian entered the courthouse for a hearing on whether prosecutors will be able to call more than a dozen accusers as witnesses at his upcoming sexual assault trial.

Lawyers for Cosby are trying to limit the number of other accusers who can testify at a trial involving accusations by Andrea Constand.

Prosecutors want to show Cosby had a pattern of drugging and molesting women.

The defence will attack their credibility and relevance to his 2004 encounter with Ms Constand.
