Funny as Hell - Bill Cosby routine - Netflix
On October 16, 2014, at the Philadelphia club The Trocadero, Buress was recorded doing an extended routine about existing rape allegations against comedian Bill Cosby. Buress addressed Cosby's legacy of “talk[ing] down” to young black men about their style of dress and lifestyle. Buress criticized the actor's public moralizing by saying, “Yeah, but you raped women, Bill Cosby, so that kind of brings you down a couple notches.” The audience appeared to respond to Buress's accusation with incredulity; he encouraged everyone to search for “Bill Cosby rape” when they got home. Buress had been doing the same Cosby routine for the previous six months with little response, but the October performance went viral after being posted on Philadelphia magazine's website. A media firestorm ensued, with numerous publications tackling the question of how Cosby had managed to maintain, as Buress called it in his set, a “Teflon image” despite more than a decade of public sex-abuse accusations. Comedian Eddie Murphy later referenced Buress's role in the allegations coming to light while impersonating Cosby during his 2015 Mark Twain Prize for American Humor acceptance speech, mockingly playing Cosby as threatening Buress's life. (Cosby himself won the Twain Prize in 2009, after having refused it twice.)
