Bill Cosby's list of sexual assault accusers now stands at 38 after three women came forward this week with new allegations against the comedian.

Janice Baker Kinney, Marcella Tate, and Autumn Burns appeared in a news conference Thursday with attorney Gloria Allred, The Wrap reported. All three women claim they were drugged and assaulted by Cosby in the late '70s and early '80s.

Baker-Kinney said Cosby assaulted her in May 1982 while she worked as a bartender at Harrah's casino in Reno, according to The Wrap. She claimed that she became a target for the comedian after being invited to a pizza party that he attended.

Tate was a model in 1975 when Cosby allegedly attacked her at the Playboy Mansion.

Burns insisted that Cosby forced her to have sex with him in 1970 when she was a 20-year-old game starter at the Sahara, The Wrap continued.

The women complained during the news conference that, despite the allegations, Cosby remains unapologetic. They also pointed out that he is even still on tour, though ticket sales for Cosby's "Far From Finished" comedy show have fallen recently, leading to cancellations.

According to Ticketmaster, Friday shows in Albany, New York, and Saturday's in Rochester, New York, have been canceled, but Cosby is still set to perform at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center in Atlanta on May 2.

The accusations bring the total number of alleged victims to 38, according to The Huffington Post, which noted that a vast majority of them date from the 1960s through the '80s.

Cosby's attorney, Martin Singer, has denied the previous claims in the past but has yet to comment on the latest allegations.

The renewed sexual assault claims against Cosby that started late last year cost the comedian a comedy special on Netflix and also led NBC to postpone a program it was developing with him, according to The Wrap.

Comedian Hannibal Buress renewed the attention to the sexual assault claims in October when he slammed Cosby during a comedy routine in Cosby's hometown of Philadelphia.
