THAT THE WORD “LEFT” IS SO OFTEN ASSOCIATED WITH NEGATIVE
THINGS– TWO LEFT FEET, LEFT-HANDED COMPLIMENT, WHAT ARE
WE HAVING FOR DINNER, LEFTOVERS. YOU GO TO A PARTY, THERE’S

SHOW.>>I LIKE THIS SHOW. I WATCH THIS SHOW A LOT.>>Stephen: YOU DO?>>YEAH, I DO, I REALLY DO.>>Stephen: I’M HONORED.>>THAT’S NICE. ( LAUGHTER )
MY FAVORITE PART OF THE SHOW IS THE UNCOMFORTABLE GREETING AT
THE STAIR WHEN THE GUEST COMES OUT.>>Stephen: OH, ME, TOO. YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT’S GOING TO
HAPPEN.>>IS IT HARDER WITH MEN OR WITH
WOMEN?>>Stephen: IT’S EASIER WITH
MEN BECAUSE, GENERALLY, IT’S A HANDSHAKE AND A LITTLE, LIKE,
AWKWARD BUMP. BUT WITH– BUT WITH MY FEMALE
GUESTS, I DON’T KNOW WHO IS COMFORTABLE WITH A HUG, WHO
WANTS– IS OKAY WITH A PECK ON THE CHEEK. IF IT’S A EUROPEAN ACTOR OR
ACTRESS, YOU KISS ON TWO WEEKS.>>I KNOW, I WATCH THAT– THAT’S
THE HARDEST– I’M FASCINATED BY YOUR AWKWARDNESS IN THAT MOMENT
( LAUGHTER ).>>Stephen: SO AM I. AND SOMETIMES I SAY BACKSTAGE,
“SO WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO?” YOU IDENTIFIED RIGHT THERE.>>WHEN I CAME OUT I SAID, “WHAT
DO YOU WANT?”>>Stephen: AND I SAID HOW
ABOUT A GENTLE LITTLE HUG.>>WE RECEIVED THE SOPRANO
TWO-HIT. REMEMBER THEY WOULD DO THAT ON
THE “SOPRANOS.”>>Stephen: I DON’T REMEMBER
THAT.>>THEY WOULD MEET AND IT WAS
TWO HITS ON THE SHOULDER BLADE, AND THAT WAS ALL “SOPRANOS”
MEETINGS. REALLY? NOBODY, “SOPRANOS?>>Stephen: THAT WAS WELL
STUDIED. THE GUY PAID ATTENTION TO HOW
UNCOMFORTABLE I AM.>>THAT’S THE ONLY THING I’M
INTERESTED IN –>>Stephen: BECAUSE YOU’VE
HEARD EVERY JOKE IN THE WORLD. THERE’S NO JOKE YOU HAVEN’T
HEARD.>>I LIKE AWKWARDNESS. I LIKE PEOPLE NOT FEELING GOOD. I LIKE THAT.>>Stephen: I DO, TOO. I LIKE PUTTING MYSELF IN AWKWARD
SITUATIONS AND KIND OF HUFFING THE DISCOMFORT.>>THAT’S COMEDY. YOU FIND THE COMEDY THERE.>>Stephen: GOING INTO AN
ELEVATOR AND SINGING, LIKE JIMMY BUFFET IN A CROWDED ELEVATOR
DOESN’T GO OVER WELL.>>WHO WAS IT– I THINK IT WAS
JEFF ALTMAN– DO YOU KNOW JEFF ALTMAN.>>Stephen: I DO KNOW HIM BUT
I DON’T.>>IF YOU GET ON AN ELEVATOR
WITH HIM AND IT’S JUST THE TWO OF YOU AND SOMEBODY ELSE COMES
IN, HE WILL SAY, “SO I SAID TO MY DOCTOR, ‘WHY AM I VOMITING UP
SO MUCH PUSS? ‘” THAT’S WHAT HE WOULD DO TO
YOU IN THE ELEVATOR AND WANT PERSON IN THERE WOULD FREAK OUT. OH, MY GOD. IT IS SO VILE. EVERY WORD IN THERE IS SO VILE.>>Stephen: SURE. WELL, THERE’S SOMETHING– I
LIKE– I LIKE THE LEANING INTO THE AWKWARDNESS– THAT’S COMEDY
TO ME BECAUSE I HAD A VERY AWKWARD CHILDHOOD. LIKE, YOU SAW THE PHOTO OF ME
BEING AN AWKWARD CHILD OUT HERE.>>YEAH.>>Stephen: YOU’RE NOT
REVISITING BEFORE YOU WERE FAMOUS JERRY SEINFELD, WHEN YOU
WERE A WORK COMEDIAN–>>I WASN’T WORKING.>>Stephen: YOU WEREN’T
WORKING?>>WELL, I WAS PERFORMING, BUT
WORKING IS YOU GETTING MONEY. I WAS TRYING– TRYING TO BE A
COMEDIAN.>>Stephen: SO THAT JOKE WE
HEARD YOU SAY IN THE– IN THE LEAD-IN, WHEN I WAS ANNOUNCING
YOU, YOU DIDN’T GET PAID FOR THAT JOKE?>>NO. I DID JUST RECENTLY BECAUSE IT’S
ON THE NETFLIX SPECIAL.>>Stephen: THIS IS LITERALLY
THE MATERIAL YOU WERE WORKING ON WHEN YOU TRIED TO BREAK IN.>>THIS WAS THE MATERIAL I WROTE
FROM MY BEDROOM WHEN I GREW UP TO THE FIRST TIME I GOT ON
JOHNNY CARSON. EVERYTHING THAT GOT ME THROUGH
THE CLUBS, THROUGH ALL THAT HIERARCHY, THROUGH ALL THAT, YOU
KNOW, LITTLE STRUGGLE– WHICH WASN’T A STRUGGLE TO ME BECAUSE
I LOVED IT. I WAS IN IT. I JUST WANTED TO BE IN IT. BUT THAT WAS THE JOKE I WROTE ON
A PIECE OF PAPER AND I SAID IT TO TWO FRIENDS IN COLLEGE, AND I
READ IT TO THEM. I SAID, WHAT DO YOU THINK OF
THIS?” AND THEY SAID, “THAT’S FUNNY.” EVERYBODY LAUGHED. AND THEY SAID, “THAT’S FUNNY.” AND IT’S THE FIRST TIME I
THOUGHT, “MAYBE I COULD BE A COMEDIAN.”>>Stephen: DID YOU SHARE
THAT. HOW LONG HAD YOU BEEN
HUSBANDING–>>THAT’S WHERE I START GLD HOW
LONG HAD YOU BEEN HUSBANDING THAT DREAM?>>”HUSBANDING?”
>>Stephen: IT’S A TERM–>>IT’S LIKE GIVING BIRTH TO A
CALF.>>Stephen: HOW LONG HAD YOU
BEEN NURTURING? HOW LONG HAD YOU BEEN NURTURING
THAT DREAM OF BEING A COMEDIAN?>>IN MY MIND PERSONALLY.>>Stephen: YES.>>PROBABLY SEVEN, EIGHT YEARS
OLD.>>Stephen: REALLY?>>YEAH, WHEN I WAS A LITTLE
KID– WHEN I FIRST SAW COMEDIANS ON TV– I THINK I FIRST

THERE BY HIMSELF AND TELLS JOKES? THAT’S THE GREATEST THING I HAVE
SEEN.>>Stephen: DID YOUR MOTHER

THAT WAS THE ONLY PLACE YOU COULD SEE THEM.>>THE SULLIVAN SHOW.>>Stephen: HERE IN THIS
BUILDING, THE SULLIVAN SHOW. MY MOM WOULD LET ME STAY UP IF
JOHN BIENER OR DAVID BRERN –>>Stephen: DID YOU LIKE
STAND-UP COMIC?>>Stephen: OH, YES. I NEVER DID IT, STAND-UP.>>IT’S A CERTAIN GENE, AN
ANIMALISTIC GENE THAT PUSHES YOU TO TAKE THAT RISK, I THINK.>>Stephen: WHEN YOU WERE A
KID AND SAID, “I WANT TO DO THIS?”
WHO WAS THE COMEDIAN.>>THE COMEDIAN WAS BILL CAUSE
BEE.>>Stephen: WONDERFULNESS.>>WHY IS THERE AIR? GREATEST– WHAT’S WORD– BODY OF
WORK, I THINK, IN COMEDY IS HIS.>>Stephen: YOU CAN STILL
LISTEN TO HIS COMEDY?>>OH, YEAH.>>Stephen: YEAH, I GREW UP ON
HIS STUFF. I THINK HE SAVED MY LIFE.>>RIGHT.>>Stephen: BECAUSE WHEN I WAS
A KID, I HAD A TRAGEDY IN MY LIFE, BUT FOR THE NEXT TWO YEARS
I LISTENED TO BILL COSBY ALBUMS EVERY NIGHT BEFORE I WENT TO
BED. I WOULD HIDE THE SPEAKERS UNDER
MY PILLOW SO MY MOM COULDN’T HEAR IT. YOU COULD DROP A NEEDLE EYE
CAN’T LISTEN TO IT NOW.>>YOU CAN’T.>>Stephen: NO, I CAN’T
SEPARATE IT.>>YOU CAN’T?>>Stephen: BECAUSE THERE’S
LOVE THERE. THERE’S LOVE– THERE’S LOVE
THERE.>>I KNOW, IT’S TRAGIC.>>Stephen: YEAH.>>BUT COMEDY– THERE’S A LOT OF
TRAGEDY IN COMEDY –>>Stephen: THERE’S COMEDY
BECAUSE OF TRAGEDY.>>THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO
HAVE TRAGIC LIVES.>>Stephen: SURE.>>I KNOW. THE JERRY LEWIS THING HE DIDN’T
INCLUDE ANY OF HIS SONS IN THE WELL. HOW DID YOU FEEL ABOUT THAT?>>Stephen: KIND OF HILARIOUS
( LAUGHTER ) NOW, DENIED THEM MONEY, THAT’S
NOT THE SAME THING AS SLIPPING THEM A ROOFY.>>THAT UPSET ME BECAUSE I
ADOREDDED JERRY LEWIS. BUT I’M NOT GOING TO NOT WATCH
THE BELL BOW.>>Stephen: “SAILOR BEWARE,”
ONE OF THE FUNNIEST MOVIES.>>I NEVER SAW THAT.>>Stephen: I TAUGHT MYSELF
SOME OF THE MOVES FROM “SAILOR BEWARE” WHEN I WAS A KID.>>WE WANT TO SEE YOU DO THEM
SOME DAY.>>Stephen: SOME DAY.>>NOT NOW. POLISH IT UP A LITTLE.>>Stephen: WAS THERE SOMEBODY
WHO GAVE YOU THE BENEDICTION– I DON’T MEAN TO DO THIS TO YOU. BUT WAS THERE SOMEBODY–
>>I DON’T MIND. ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) WELL, YES, THERE WAS A GUY– I
DON’T KNOW IF THE AUDIENCE REMEMBERS JACKIE MASON.>>Stephen: SURE.>>OKAY, SO JACKIE MASON– WHEN
I HAD JUST WROTE THAT “LEFT” JOKE. I STARTED GOING AND SAYING–
COULDN’T EVEN GO TO THE CLUBS THAT HAD ENTERTAINMENT. THERE WERE RESTAURANTS THAT
WOULD HAVE, LIKE, AN OPEN-MIC TALENT NIGHT AND I COULD GET ON
THERE. AND JACKIE MASON WAS IN THE
AUDIENCE. I WAS DOING IT, LIKE, TWO
WEEKS– AND THIS IS ALL TRUE. AND HE CAME OVER TO ME AT THE
BAR, AFTER THE SHOW, AND HE SAID, “YOU ARE GOING TO BE SO
SUCCESSFUL, IT MAKES ME SICK.” ( LAUGHTER )
AND WE– AND I DIDN’T KNOW REALLY EVEN WHAT HE MEANT, YOU
KNOW. BECAUSE I THOUGHT HOW COULD HE
EVEN SEE ANYTHING? I DIDN’T EVEN– I COULD BARELY
SPEAK. AND FROM THEN ON, AND I’VE KNOWN
HIM FOR MANY YEARS SINCE THEN. YEAH, THAT WAS TWO WEEKS IN. THAT WAS A VERY BIG DAY IN MY
LIFE.>>Stephen: THAT IS GREAT.>>YEAH.>>Stephen: I UNDERSTAND YOUR
DAD HAD THIS SAYING CALLED, “BREAK A FACE.” THAT WAS IN SALES, RIGHT?>>YEAH, THAT WAS IN CASE.>>Stephen: WHAT DOES “BREAK A
FACE” MEAN?>>HE WOULD TALK TO A GUY HE
KNEW HE WASN’T GOING TO SELL TO THE GUY, THEY HAD FACE LIKE A
ROCK, AND HE JUST WANTED TO BREAK THAT FACE, YOU KNOW. JUST SAY SOMETHING TO THE GUY
THAT WOULD MAKE HIM LAUGH. IT WAS EVEN BETTER TO HIM THAN
GETTING THE SALE. HE REALLY HAD A GREAT COMEDIC
GIFT HIMSELF.>>Stephen: DID HE– DID HE
TEACH YOU HOW TO BREAK THE FACE? DID HE TEACH YOU JOKES AS A KID.>>I DON’T KNOW IF HE COULD
TEACH IT, BUT HE WAS A GREAT JOKE TELLER. ONE OF THE JOKES HE USED TO TELL
ME, A MAN COMES HOME, HIS WIFE IS IN BED, HE GOES INTO THE
BATHROOM THERE’S ANOTHER MAN BEHIND THE SHOWER CURTAIN AND HE
SAYS TO HIM, “WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?”
AND THE MAN SAYS, “EVERYBODY’S GOT TO BE SOMEWHERE.” ( LAUGHTER )
I LIKE THAT JOKE.>>Stephen: AS A CHILD, DID
YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT THAT JOKE WAS ABOUT?>>NO, NO. ( LAUGHTER ).>>Stephen: WE HAVE TO TAKE A
BREAK. WHEN WE COME BACK I’M GOING TO
FIND OUT WHAT ANNOYS YOU.>>OKAY, THAT’S EASY.>>Stephen: JERRY SEINFELD,
EVERYBODY.

  1. Sorry, I’m not watching Lewis or Cosby they’re both shits.
    And that’s the legacy not MDA, screwing your sons.
    Is Cosby still redeemable? Doubtful.

  2. IF YOU WANT TO DISOWN EVERYONE WHO HAS COMMITTED SEXUAL ABUSE WHOLESALE…LET US START WITH THE IMPEACHMENT OF TRUMP…AT LEAST COSBY BROUGHT US HUMOR!!!!

  3. these two guys are at OPPOSITE poles… one's a legend and the other is a pretender waiting to be outed for his lack of ability to provide anything of substance to society. Seinfeld was just being nice when he said he watches Colbert

  4. I can separate it. I still love theBill Cosby special “ Himself “. Very funny. I separate for him everyone except for Kanye West. I find him insufferable and annoying despite the fact that his first three albums where great. In general you will often be disappointed if you dig too deeply into famous people’s personal life. Especially Musicians.

  5. thats peace that Seinfeld didn't throw the Cos under the bus…or should eye say thats shalom…the Sein gets extra credit points for that

  6. Well, Bill Cosby saved my sanity with his humor, but now it all seems phony and calculated to me — how could the same person slip women drugs and rape them?

  7. The joke that Jerry's father told him with the punchline, "Everbody's gotta be someplace" is an old Myron Cohen Joke.

  8. Stephen doesn't know Jeff "do you see a hummingbird on a rhinoceros in my nose?" Altman? Well, I'm going to kick you into next week!

  9. this is so dumb.   COsby is a comic great.  if he raped all them women why the hell they get him on some damn Benadryl.

  10. Judge O’Neil white racist trained by FBI FUSION CENTER IN PHYCOLOGICAL WARFARE THE MEDIA AND LEGAL SYSTEM ARE A DISGRACE. Bill Cosby is %100 innocent! Those women accusing him were paid by contractors from the CIA/FBI Fusion Centers. Bill Cosby helped Black people. So Bill Cosby must be destroyed. The FBI MAFIA has a team of hundreds of beautiful black woman who entrap black businessmen. There was a Readers digest verified story by a FBI woman who after testifying against a Black Businessman in Chicago said this. I didn’t really think he was that bad. They asked me to do the same thing to another black man, I said no. The rest of my career (the black FBI female agent said) was spent in the back offices doing paperwork… Of course Bill Cosby laughed because he was innocent %100 and the trial was a a complete setup and disgrace. The woman was a liar. The judge was a paid puppet who hated Bill right from the beginning. Sounds really cool but this is NOT justice!!! Watch! Bill will be released. These witnesses are paid actresses. Bill Cosby is a handsome rich famous Blackman? DO YOU REALLY THINK BILL COSBY HAD TO RAPE BLACK WOMEN WHO FELL AT HIS FEET?! That is why Bill laughed at the guilty verdict. NO RAPES HAPPENED. NO POISONING HAPPENED. All prefabricated by the anti black man USA government…

  11. I think what Cosby did was monstrous…but I can kinda watch his old show unhinged……i just accept that what he did was wrong, and just look at the intended message, rather what horrible stuff was going on off camera. I dont have to like him or admire him, I just treat that Cosby, as characters….you be be a terrible person, yet play a great character…and no matter how great a character you play, being positive, you can still be equally as monstrous. I admit, broke my heart to know he did that.

  12. Hey Hey Hey, Here is hoping Bill Cosby isn't a master of his own domain & is getting a daily dose of prison puddin' pops up his poop chute daily.

  13. I get the feeling Seinfeld hasn't experienced much suffering in his life. Nor has he had a mother, sister, child molested or raped. Comparing it to not giving a grown kid money? Um, yeah, no. Kudos to Stephen for having a really good heart. Meanwhile, Seinfeld has no problem at'all continuing to enrich the lowest form of life, preying on, violating in the most contemptible, degrading, vile, and evil way, young women who completely trusted and admired him. Sure, let's go enjoy his comedy. Day-um.

  14. Thought experiment: What if someone chooses to re-record Cosby's material and these re-recordings get shared around?

  15. I’ve never been a fan of Seinfeld, he’s an asshole. Comparing Jerry Lewis not leaving Money to his sons with Bill Cosby who sexually abused women, shows just what an asshole Seinfeld is! He’s an arrogant person who thinks he’s funnier than he is!

  16. Stephen Colbert was so hilarious and talented back in the day. Now he´s just a boring mouthpiece for propaganda, mainstream media bullshit and stifling political corrrectness. And yes, you guessed correctly, I am a nazi.

  17. yeah Jerry, drugging and raping women is not comparable to leaving your children out of your will. For starters one is legal and the other isn't.

  18. Jerr is sooo unfunny it upsets me deeply when I see him/ponder how he became an icon. Probably like how Cosby the rapist cornball rose to super stardom. Jerry makes no sense either. Making fun of your own tragedy in your comedy set, and raping women/performing super corny wholesome sets, are two verrry different things.

  19. He can probly still listen to Cosby, because he too can roofie and rape women, then go perform comedy to his witless, tasteless fans

  20. Jerry Seinfeld is a smug prick,  just watch his interview with Larry King. Watch how Jerry responds to Larry King about the way Seinfeld went off the air. Also I think the show's success is due to LARRY DAVID'S excellent comedic writing skills not Jerry's, it's obvious that he road L. David's coat tails in that regard. Let's not forget (how could we) Jerry's crappy acting. Oh & he has not done one good TV show or Movie since, coincidence i think not.

  21. The Cosby segment begins at 5:53.

    Seinfeld was very sensible about separating the artist from transgressions made by the artist in personal life. Colbert's opinion in not being able to do so is respectable as well, but the way those as him feel could be a sign of our hypersensitive times, where we have been conditioned to be "moral" over the slightest matters. For example, when people get up in arms because Miley Cyrus jokingly poses for a photo with the corners of her eyes pulled back, what is really going on, at least subconsciously, is that the outraged, when they react in such a knee-jerk manner, are in a rush to display their own "moral superiority."

    (That Miley Cyrus example was not meant as an equivalent to the crimes Cosby has committed, of course, but as a way to explain how people are now in a rush to condemn, often calling for the highest penalties, such as resignations for public officials, or calls for the accused to get fired from their jobs.)

    I was watching the film Lost Highway recently, and thoroughly enjoyed Robert Blake's performance; when I watch the "Naked Gun" movies, I get a kick out of O.J. Simpson. Neither man was found guilty for the charge of murder, naturally, but there is that gnawing feeling among the public that justice has not been carried out.

    In an effort to find a more direct parallel, I looked up this page entitled, "49 Celebrities Who Have Killed People" https://www.ranker.com/list/celebrities-who-have-killed-people/celebrity-lists (Many listed were car accidents. There were some ridiculous choices, such as Jimmy Stewart and Oliver Stone who killed in war. They were soldiers, and that was their job. The ones who make up these lists are rarely fair and reliable; for example, both O.J. and Robert Blake have been included, but no one can say with certainty whether they were guilty.)

    Two examples I was not aware of were actor Charles S. Dutton (always a joy to watch; apparently he served seven years in prison, for killing a man) and actor Gig Young (who killed his wife, then himself). Now as despicable as what Cosby has done is, what he has done is not as serious as murder/manslaughter. The next time I watch Dutton or Young in a movie or television show, will I turn off the set? No.

    President Andrew Jackson, the one on the twenty dollar bill, has now become known only for the Trail of Tears, where thousands of Cherokee Indians were allowed to die. (As if every other U.S. president has been loving and caring about the Indians.) This is a wonderful example of political correctness run amok. Jackson was behind some laudable measures (he was against predatory banks, choosing instead to side with the people), and he may have saved the country, in the Battle of New Orleans. Nothing else matters, as society's false moralists must now equate him, as the definition of his being, with the Trail of Tears.

    Here is an example of wrongdoing hardly anyone in my nation of the United States is aware of. After WWII, the USA carried out a "genocidal" policy of allowing for the defeated Germans to die from hunger and maltreatment. (Henry Morgenthau Jr. and Bernard Baruch were evidently the architects of this plan; only the impending Soviet threat saved the German people from a slow annihilation).

    One of the country's greatest presidents, FDR, evidently approved of the plan. One of the country's greatest heroes, the commander behind D-Day, Dwight Eisenhower, implemented much of it. (He refused to release hundreds of thousands of German POWs, and reclassified their status in order to avoid feeding them, thus bypassing Geneva Convention stipulations.)

    Now that is serious. Yet will I lose my appreciation of FDR and Eisenhower? No.
    .

  22. Seinfeld publicly dated an underage girl. He is certified worse than bill cosby but he is still on tv because he is white

  23. I think what people hold against Cosby is the way he tried to cover it up, and/or because they can't reconcile his clean image with depraved acts.

    However, I think the reaction against Cosby is out of sync with how other celebrities are handled. Lots of prominent comedians and celebrities went to the Playboy club in the 70's; Cosby surely wasn't the only one doing questionable things. I'm sure Hef is always the perfect gentleman…. but the only person we look into was Bill Cosby. It's like he became this scapegoat. Rick James was never sent to prison. why not? because it was only one woman? Listen to him and Charlie Murphy talk about their exploits with women and try to tell yourself that everything was consensual and above board… but nobody says word one about Charlie Murphy except that he's funny.

    so I ask: what's the difference?

  24. Don´t know what it is about Seinfeld, but i never liked him, and never found him that funny compared to other comedians like Murphy, Spears, Bill Burr etc.

  25. Yeah, even though Cosby was really funny, I couldn’t listen to him now because I wouldn’t separate it either. One likes to admire the creator of the art, and you can’t admire Bill Cosby.

  26. I'm not surprised Jerry is able to separate Cosby the comedian from Cosby the sexual predator. Jerry has never been nor ever will be a humanist. He possesses an underlying lack of empathy. You saw it in "Seinfeld". You see in "Comedians in cars getting coffee". But he has an incredible capacity to turn that lack of empathy into humorous observations of the banal minutiae of everyday life.

  27. you know Jerry is not into the politically correct crap like the crowd and Stephen Colbert LOL. what you mean you cannot separate are you idiot or moron or what?

  28. It would be idoitc not to like something out of prejudice. You can't like Bill Cosby art because he raped. That's not true, you can't like it because you egolistically think protesting a rapist makes you a good thing. It doesn't.

  29. Any comedians they’re comedy when they’ make People laugh but when the time past they’re become funny to watch 🙂

  30. I grew up on Cosby, nothing really I hear stops me from enjoying his comedy and shows. I don't concern myself w their personal lives, they're entertainers, their life outside that is not my business. I don't let the media shape my opinions.

  31. ok,,,,i oved and grew up with Bill Cosby. But no choice….forget him….. come on Jerrry. what if Hitler was a comendian.. sorry lost me

  32. Jerry, you make my skin crawl. Cosby not only drugged women he drugged a lot of women then rapped them, no one knows what other things he did. I bet if one of these women had been your daughter or your wife now you would have a different outlook. Cosby is and was a predator a vile and disgusting predator. I'll bet all the women he drugged and rapped were at one time his fans also. Jerry ask his victims if they still like his comedy? Seinfeld comparing rape to a will where children don't get any money Boo Fucking Whooo. Get a job.

  33. Last i checked cosby was accused…no proof was presented….95pct of the women were found to be lying. Now im not saying he didnt do it. I know that in hollywood most of the men….including all ur beloved actors and producers etc were exploiting women….even in recent times..ie weinstein….but u support them…hmm…if he never attempted to buy nbc im sure the story wouldve been different. And about his comedy being fake. Thats the most ignorant thing ive heard…inauthentic…lol….are your kids stupid….my point exactly…if he did it, those are his actions to be judged by God not you. Last point i will make is that if you read up on the salem witch trials…those people died still thinking that all those women they burned were witches….because of heresy

  34. Colbert is naturally funny… but I didn't believe his words about Cosby for a second. It just felt like he was mirroring Jerry back to himself to keep the conversation going.
    I LOVED Cosby as a kid, and it was really hard for me to accept that he might just be a horrible person. I fought the thought for YEARS, well into adulthood. But I rediscovering his old material in long form on Youtube, like Chicken-heart and the Gokart story, and was immediately enraptured back to my childhood, listening to his records with my father. Amazing use of sound effects, voices, pacing, characters, just astoundingly hilarious, self deprecating, colorful. It makes me sad to think how wrong we all were, but the facts are still the facts, is best material is still gold.
