Bill Cosby Returns To Comedy Before Rape Retrial

Not funny.

Accused rapist and one-time American TV legend Bill Cosby performed a comic set with new material on getting older and going blind on Monday night at Philadelphia’s LaRose Jazz Club. Cosby’s standup was part of a variety performance in honor of jazz musician Tony Williams, and he also engaged happily with the band behind him, scatting along with the music and briefly playing the drums.

He joked, “I used to be a comedian” in the hourlong set, as he wore his trademark “Hello Friend” sweatshirt.

One of his jokes was about his own loss of vision, according to The Morning Call, a local paper.

“Let me tell you something about people talking to blind people, you sighted people,” Cosby said. “If you see a blind person walking into a pole or something, if you speak perfect English,

All you can do is laugh, right? You know, when a U.S. Senate contest comes down to a choice between a Democrat (Doug Jones) whose legal career includes prosecuting the klansmen responsible for the 1963 Birmingham 16th Street Baptist Church bombing, and a twice fired Republican former judge (Roy Moore) who’s a noted “birther,” homophobe, anti-Muslim bigot, and—oh yeah—is now accused of being a serial pedophile. And when the upcoming special election race is rated a dead heat. And when polls show a significant number of Alabama Republicans and evangelical Christians are more likely to vote Team Underage since the Washington Post report on Roy Moore’s thoroughly documented history of predation against young girls came out. With all these facts and more

The Comedy Studio admits mistake in allowing convicted pedophile to appear at open mic night

Last month The Comedy Studio, a cathedral for local comedians, announced it would soon be closing its doors while actively looking to relocate from its home of more than 20 years over the Hong Kong Restaurant in Harvard Square. Nostalgia, support, and real estate suggestions flooded in following news of the decision, with members of the Cambridge community getting behind the effort to keep the comedy club in the city of Cambridge.

Now that attention has shifted from The Comedy Studio finding a new home to scrutiny over a controversial booking that has sparked outrage.

On September 21, one-time Boston comedy club regular Chris Allen Oake was confirmed to appear at the Comedy Studio alongside 10 other comedians. Oake was in 2012 convicted of multiple counts of child pornography and sentenced to 64 months in prison. According to the Department of Justice, the Acton man pleaded

Comedy Central Guy Calls Barron Trump A ‘Date-Rapist-To-Be’ With A ‘Small PP’

Comedy Central contributor Stephen Spinola tweeted Friday morning, the morning of President Donald Trump’s inauguration, that his 10-year-old son Barron looks like a “date-rapist-to-be.”


Spinola followed up his now-deleted tweet with a second now-deleted tweet in which he said he hoped Barron would one day rape his mother.

“I don’t want my Mom to get raped, but if she does I hope it’s by Barron Trump,” he wrote. “Small pp [sic] would be painless and we’d win lots of money in court.”

The stand up comedian — and self-proclaimed “Master of Cum” — would go on to apologize Monday morning.
