    Default Bill Cosby, a serial rapist.

    October 28, 2014, 8:14 AM

    Hannibal Buress, a stand-up comedian who made headlines in the past week by reviving allegations of more than a dozen rape cases against fellow comedian Bill Crosby will play Sands Bethlehem Event Center, it was just announced..

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hannibal_Buress

    Buress, the 2012 winner of Comedy Central’s award for Best Club Comic, made national news when, during an Oct. 16 Buress performance at Philadelphia’s Trocadero Theatre, he noted the irony of Crosby criticizing black youth for such things as wearing droopy pants while he has been accused over the years of sexual assaulting women.

    Thirteen women filed a 2004 lawsuit accusing Cosby, now 77, of drugging and sexually assaulting them, and settled under undisclosed terms in 2006.

    "It's even worse because Bill Cosby has the f-----g smuggest old black man public persona that I hate," Buress told the Trocadero crowd in a routine of which a video is posted on YouTube.

    " ‘Pull your pants up, black people. I was on TV in the '80s. I can talk down to you because I had a successful sitcom,’” Buress says in the routine. “Yeah, but you raped women, Bill Cosby. So, brings you down a couple of notches. ... I've done this bit onstage, and people don't believe. People think I'm making it up. ... If you didn't know about it, trust me. You leave here and Google 'Bill Cosby rape.' It's not funny. That … has more results than Hannibal Buress."

    The routine has gotten international media attention.

    Buress co-stars with Eric André on “The Eric André Show” on Adult Swim and has been featured in “The Awkward Comedy Show” special on Comedy Central, the FX sitcom “Louie” and on Comedy Central programs such as “Live at Gotham” and “John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show.”

    Buress recently appeared on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” and has been on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “Late Show with David Letterman,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” “Conan” and “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.”

    Buress was a writer on “Saturday Night Live” from 2009-10, and briefly wrote for the NBC comedy series “30 Rock.”

    His first stand-up comedy album "My Name is Hannibal" was released in 2010 and in 2012 he released a second disc, "Animal Furnace," that also aired as a special on Comedy Central.

    I'm always suspicious of anyone that claims rape and then takes an "out of court settlement." If they were really raped, they wouldn't want him on the streets to do the same thing to someone else. Besides, if they got a criminal conviction they could sue in civil court and get monetary damages equal to or greater than whatever settlement they received.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    When that many people make similar allegations, my gut tells me Cosby isn't squeaky clean. Here's another story that is making the rounds...

    Well, Melissa Etheridge did cop to the fact that Cosby is her baby's daddy, and I don't think she willingly slept with him.

    MM, that would be David Crosby, not Bill Cosby!

    don't know why but this story and the womans claims dredged this thing out of my memory. Bill Cosby was being sued by a woman who claimed to be his illegitimate daughter and the whole thing was weird

    Cosby admitted to having an affair with the womans mother back around the time she would have been conceived. He paid her mother something like 100 grand. The "daughter" shows up in the late 90's wanting a relationship, but then things get darker and she tries to extort money from him (she was convicted) I believe during the extortion trial Cosby takes a blood test to try to clear the mystery up, but as I recall, and a quick google search seems to confirm, the girl refused to take a test.

    But the strange thing was that in the trial Cosby testified that he told the girl at the initial meeting " I am not your father, but I can be a father figure for you"....sound familiar? creepy.
