When the sexual assault allegations against Bill Cosby began emerging en masse in November , Conan O'Brien ended up being the first mainstream late night host to lampoon the situation via his "Celebrity Survey" segment. As it turns out, though, he's been busting on Cosby since he was a year-old college student at Harvard. O'Brien stopped by the Howard Stern Show Wednesday to relay a bizarre tale about a prank he pulled on Cosby in the early s that had the comedian thinking he had just won a Lifetime Achievement in Comedy award from the school's humor magazine, the Harvard Lampoon. A big fan of Cosby's at the time, O'Brien says he simply really wanted to meet the comedian and was willing to do so by any means necessary. That apparently means picking up Cosby, one of the biggest comedy stars in world, from the airport in a ratty old station wagon he borrowed from his parents. A fitting tribute, considering that Cosby arrived that day to Boston via a private plane at Logan Airport, all while wearing a tuxedo due to the "award" he was about to receive.
Comedian Hannibal Buress caused a stir this week when jokes he made about rape allegations against Bill Cosby recorded during a set in Philadelphia. It was just something I was doing at that venue, right there. Buress said that this is the first time in his year comedy career that his material has generated major controversy. In fact, he noted that he had been performing the bit about Cosby "off and on for six months" before it went viral. The "Broad City" star said that he created the bit after reading about the sexual assault allegations against the legendary comedian.
Janice Dickinson spoke about allegedly being raped by Bill Cosby long before officially coming forward Tuesday with the accusations against the comedian. Stern began his radio show Wednesday morning with audio tape of that interview in which Dickinson was asked about her relationship with Cosby. She claims Cosby asked her to come to Lake Tahoe, where he was performing and that he suggested opportunities for her to work with him. Dickinson says Cosby then gave her wine and a pill that caused her to pass out. However, she says she does have some memory of being raped by Cosby. Cosby or any of his attorneys were ever told by Harper Collins that Ms. Dickinson had supposedly planned to write that he had sexually assaulted her, and neither Mr. Cosby or any of his representatives ever communication [sic] with the publisher about any alleged rape or sexual assault about the book. Cosby was asked during a recent National Public Radio interview about these allegations but he refused to answer any questions, choosing instead to remain silent and shake his head.
In retrospect, I believe I was being led to my current spouse. Where do you find Mormon girls. I have recently seen too much of these false promises that people use to make others feel good. Some of the guests talked about the importance of helping hard core mormons to be open and accepting to ALL their brothers and sisters in the church, regardless of sexual orientation.
