Hot damn! This is great news for everybody, to include your grandparents. Bill Cosby has a new comedy special that is set to air on Comedy Central on November 24 this year. This will be his first stand up special in thirty years. Most people may only know him now for his acclaimed and beloved TV show The Cosby Show but once upon a time the man told jokes. In fact his last special Bill Cosby:Himself is what set the ground work for his hit show to begin with. You can view the special in its entirety on youtube right now. The special was directed by Robert Townsend, some one you may not have heard of but should now look up because he is pretty great as well.
Cosby’s first acting role was in the 60′s TV show I Spy, which was made into a not very good movie a few years ago with Eddie Murphy and Owen Wilson. Over the last thirty years Cosby has stuck to TV and movie roles, as well as making various old guy complaints about youth culture. Those who have seen his recent stand-ups in clubs while he has been on tour say that he is still really funny. I will definitely be watching this special.
