I’m not a big fan of revisions, especially since there are plenty of things that look different in context, but I’m having a very hard time negotiating the minefield that is Bill Cosby’s career, reconciling it with what we know now and what is still pending in the courts.
The original video is down, and I’m not going to replace it until after I know the outcome of the lawsuits. You’re welcome to find “Bill Cosby: Himself” (which is where this routine derived).
Sexual exploitation and lawsuits that allege same have existed since the first silent era films. Go look up Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle if you don’t know what I mean.
It’s sad, too, since this routine is one of the funniest in Cosby’s career.Comments closed
