Larry Wilmore's 'Nightly Show' Airs "People v. Bill Cosby" Sketch
"That’s right motherf—er, I haven’t forgotten about you."
On Tuesday's Nightly Show, Larry Wilmore mocked Bill Cosby in a sketch that combined the popularity of The People v. O.J. Simpson with Cosby's case.
"I was watching Super Bowl 50 on Sunday, and I had the same thought that I’m sure most of you did," said Wilmore. " 'Hey, that’s the same number of women who have accused Bill Cosby of rape.' "
The Nightly Show host added, "That’s right motherf—er, I haven’t forgotten about you."
"I remember in the late '70s, early '80s, my mom met Bill Cosby down in San Diego at this tennis tournament," he added. "She came back and said, 'We asked him for his autograph, and he was so mean, so nasty. He said, 'I don't do that.' ' I was like, 'Man, what an asshole.' My opinion of Cosby at that point was like, 'What a jerk.' I never even watched The Cosby Show. I always thought, "That's great that that show is on," but about him I was like, 'Whatever, Cosby.'"
In Tuesday night's sketch, Wilmore parodies Cosby. He meets with his defense team to talk about how to defend himself and constantly offers his attorneys drinks including coffee, a smoothie and snow cones.
"You were just trying to mentor them, you're the real victim," offers up one lawyer before she also succumbs to fake Cosby's drinks.
"Cosby you did it again," says Wilmore's character, chuckling to himself as he stares at all the lawyers he has drugged.
