Bill Cosby Speaks Out Against Allegations, But Is Anyone Convinced?

A small pocket of the audience at the show in Hamilton, the third and final stop on Cosby’s brief tour, is reported to have stood up and chanted “we believe the women”. Cosby remained calm and urged the audience not to react to the protestors, and they were shortly ushered out by security. The comedian’s supporters shouted in kind “we love you, Bill” and attempted to drown the hecklers out.

Tina Fey Amy Poehler Bill Cosby Taylor Swift

So, Bill Cosby jokes – too soon? Or are they getting old now? Well, as far as Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are concerned, it’s neither, so the comedic duo will not hesitate to poke fun at the disgraced sitcom star.

Bill Cosby Returns To The Stage In Canada


Bill Cosby

Embattled comedian Bill Cosby made his stage comeback in Ontario, Canada on Wednesday night. While things went off without a hitch in the Centre in the Square theatre in Kitchener, scenes outside were rather more divisive.

Protestors had gathered outside the venue in sub-zero temperatures to shame ticket-holders as they made their way inside, on the grounds that the 77 year old entertainer is facing serious allegations of sexual assault from more than a dozen women.

Bill Cosby Sort Of Speaks Out On Accusations In First Interview


Bill Cosby

After all the outrage surrounding the Bill Cosby case, the former sitcom star has finally spoken out to the media and, more importantly, his wife. Here’s what Cosby had to say about the rape accusations to the New York Post’s Page Six.

Bill Cosby
Cosby failed to address the accusations head on and commented instead on the resillience of his wife.

"Let me say this. I only expect the black media to uphold the standards of excellence in journalism and when you do that you have to go in with a neutral mind," Cosby told the publication's Stacy Brown, who noted that he frequently writes for African-American publications.

Roseanne Barr's Bill Cosby Tweet: Did She Really Have To Go There?


Roseanne Barr Bill Cosby

Roseanne Barr has a sick and twisted sense of humor – but that’s why her fans love her, right? The comedienne made more than a few people cringe with a couple of tweets recently. Bonus points – she referenced the highly publicized Bill Cosby case from the past couple of weeks. Posting a picture of her bloody, swollen face, Barr added the caption “Got in a tussle w Bill Cosby. U shoyld see that mfer.”

We can't actually show you the tweet, because, you know, she deleted it. But once you put something online, it's there forever, so you can see a screenshot over on New York Daily News. So was Roseanne's tweet bold and gutsy for challenging Cosby on the rape allegations, or just plain insensitive to actual victims of violence? Discuss.

"Weekend Update's" Michael Che Hits The Nail On The Head With Bill Cosby Scandal


Michael Che Bill Cosby

So last night’s Saturday Night Live was a heavy hitter. And not because of Cameron Diaz, who was a perfectly fine host, but because Michael Che used the Weekend Update segment to address... I can hear you groaning already... the Bill Cosby thing.

Bill Cosby
After all the attention directed at Cosby recently, SNL went there.

While Che, much like many others, isn’t really sure where he stands on the scandal (more about that here) his speech was pretty much the most honest piece of media to hit the internet over the past week. Here’s what Che had to say, in a nutshell:
“TV Land pulled all re-runs of 'The Cosby Show. I don't know how to feel about that because I don't know Bill Cosby, but Cliff Huxtable practically raised me. I love that dude!”

After Another Rape Accusation, Bill Cosby Achieves Meme Status


Bill Cosby Hannibal Buress

Bill Cosby has fired back at the comedian, who roasted him during a standup a couple months back. And if you know anything about Bill Cosby – all tweens look away now – you’ll have guessed already that it was NOT pretty. Unfortunately for Cosby – and really, for anyone involved in this story at all – defending yourself against rape accusations is a bit different from defending yourself against a particularly harsh punchline.

Bill Cosby
Bill Cosby is in major PR trouble these days.

On Thursday, Cosby was hit with a rape accusation bMoy fellow comedian Barbara Bowman. The woman, who worked with Cosby back in the 70s,  published an essay in the Washington Post, alleging that he assaulted her on numerous occasions. Bowman was 17 at the time and an aspiring actress, while Cosby was at the height of his TV career.

Last night (October 22, 2012), Ellen Degeneres, 54, was awarded the 15th Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.

Her wife, the actress Portia DeRossi, was one of the first to congratulate Ellen and told reporters on the red carpet “I am very, very proud of Ellen. She's not only the funniest person I know, but she's such a good person.” She added, affectionately “I really like those little moments that only I recognize as her being her true self, when I can see she's being vulnerable.”

Portia wasn’t the only star to attend the bash at the John F Kennedy Centre for Performing Arts. The Will & Grace actor Sean Hayes said “like to think that Ellen made Will & Grace possible. And Will & Grace made it possible for Modern Family. (DeGeneres') fearlessness was her contribution and it continues to be.” The Glee star Jane Lynch said “She's the one who went in with the machete and did it all by herself,” whilst the singer Jason Mraz referred to DeGeneres as his “favorite aunt,” USA Today have reported.

Fat Albert Review


Terrible
If you grew up in the 1970s and early '80s and were allowed to wallow in the guilty pleasures of Saturday morning cartoons, you remember Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids. It had fantastic characters - the aptly-named Mushmouth, hat-faced Dumb Donald, pint-sized "You're like school on Saturday" Russell, and - of course - the jolly main man himself. These guys had wacky voices spouting colorful, funny dialogue. And, as the funk-tastic theme song stated, if you weren't careful, "you might just learn something" from its feel-good storylines.

So, when I first heard Hollywood was remaking Fat Albert, I had high hopes for this live-action version of one of my favorite old-school cartoons. Maybe, just maybe, it could be a clever, slightly-edgy spoof a la The Brady Bunch Movie. Sadly, Fat Albert turns out to be just a bloated and feeble after-school special that's even too sappy for kids.

California Suite Review


Very Good
This Neil Simon tragicomedy features four groups of people who converge on a L.A. hotel on the eve of the Oscars. Three stories are pretty funny -- especially Walter Matthau's unfaithful husband to Elaine May, but it's the Fonda-Alda weep-fest that opens the movie that almost ruins the show completely. Still, it's salvagable, something of a Four Rooms... still not done quite right.

Jack Review


Weak
Robin Williams gets to play at being a kid again -- and this time it's not a metaphor: He's a 10-year-old child who has aged at four times the normal rate. Watch for J. Lo as Jack's teacher, then try not to fall asleep. Not exactly Francis Ford Coppola's (who directed this film simply because he could do so in his neighborhood) crowning achievement.
