Bill Cosby is still alive and kicking and on Comedy Central. His Comedy Central special Far From Finished, airs this weekend November 23 at 8 p.m. The Cos says he’s in pretty good company on that night.
“You just turn on the TV to Comedy Central and Kevin Hart is on at 7, I’m on at 8. And then comes Dave Chapelle with his show and then Chris Rock. There’s no reason for your listeners not to be there,” Cosby told the Tom Joyner Morning Show.
It’s Cosby’s first comedy show in more than 30 years and its directed by Robert Townsend of Hollywood Shuffle and Parenthood fame. Darryl M. Bell, who played Ron on A Different World is an executive producer. Thirty years ago, Cosby’s concerts were spun off into The Cosby Show, the groundbreaking NBC series that established middle-class Black families as a staple on television and gave many viewers more insight into that world. Cosby says another spinoff could be in the works.
“I’ll spin off anything if you put the contract down and let me read it.”
