Ferrier, a model, has said previously she was assaulted by Cosby and recounted her story at a news conference shortly before the comedian took the stage Saturday.
Ferrier told People.com in 2006 that following the drugging incident she remained in a consensual relationship with the comedian for months.
The 77-year-old comedian is facing sexual assault accusations from at least 15 women, with some of the claims dating back decades. He has denied the allegations through his attorney and has never been charged with a crime.

Inside the theatre, Cosby was greeted with a standing ovation.
Lawyer Gloria Allred, who represents several of the alleged victims, was at the Saturday demonstrations.
“For most of these women,” Allred said, “They were not actresses, didn’t want to be actresses. They were typical women.”
More than 100 people chanted “Rape is not a joke!” and “No means no!” outside the theatre.
On Friday, about two dozen people protested outside a venue where Cosby was performing in Pueblo.MORE NEWS: Two Drug Dealers To Plead Guilty In Mac Miller's Studio City Overdose Death
