Comedian Hannibal Buress calls Bill Cosby a rapist during stand-up routine
Comedian Hannibal Buress called Bill Cosby a rapist during his stand-up set in Philadelphia last week.
Last Thursday at the Trocadero, Buress referred to the allegations of sexual assault made against Cosby by multiple women.
The comedian suggested it was hypocritical of Cosby, who played the upstanding Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable on The Cosby Show, to give younger men or “black people” advice.
Philadelphia Mag first posted the video of the Cosby bit the day after Buress’ show.
Thirteen? And it’s even worse because Bill Cosby has the fucking smuggest old black man public persona that I hate. Pull your pants up, black people. I was on TV in the ’80s. I can talk down to you because I had a successful sitcom. Yeah, but you raped women, Bill Cosby. So, brings you down a couple notches. I don’t curse on stage. Well, yeah, you’re a rapist, so, I’ll take you sayin’ lots of motherfuckers on Bill Cosby: Himself if you weren’t a rapist.[…] I want to just at least make it weird for you to watch Cosby Show reruns. […] I’ve done this bit on stage, and people don’t believe. People think I’m making it up. […]That shit is upsetting. If you didn’t know about it, trust me. You leave here and google ‘Bill Cosby rape.’ It’s not funny. That shit has more results than Hannibal Buress.

Thirteen women have accused Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting them during incidents that date back to the 1970’s.
