*Either Bill Cosby has a big pair or he likes playing with fire. Or maybe he’s just being … Bill.
OK, what we’re talking about if you haven’t heard is that on Thursday evening Cosby, who’s under scrutiny for allegedly drugging and taking sexual liberties with women decades ago, went for it and made a funny quip that alluded to his predicament during the second of three shows in Canada.
Dude was on stage doing his shtick when he cracked a joke to a woman, warning her that she should be careful about drinking near him, according to the Associated Press.
More specifically, the incident occurred in an off-the-cuff moment when a woman got up near the stage and started making her way past him when he asked where she was going. She explained that she was heading to the lobby to get a drink.
Uh oh, that’s when he came with the comical crack:
“You have to be careful about drinking around me,” the comedian said. His joke was met with enthusiastic applause.
Well, like they say, you have to give the devil credit for living in Hell, so you have to give Cosby props for making fun of his own very serious situation.
As EUR has previously reported, the funny man has been accused by 29 women of sexual assault. Many of their allegations include stories of the comedian drugging them via a drink before assaulting them. Even though he hasn’t publicly rebutted the charges, Cosby has maintained his innocence through his lawyer, and recently both his TV daughter (Keshia Knight Pulliam) and TV wife (Phylicia Rashad) have vouched for him.
