Bill Cosby

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

Bill Cosby’s role as the lovable dad everyone wished they had in The Cosby Show has seen a definitive shift over the years. Today, Cosby has taken on more of a tough-love role, demanding higher standards of education and responsibility from black America. To Cosby, the issue boils down to accountability, while his critics say the multi-millionaire comic is ignoring systemic inequities of race and class. Cosby recently took a public stance on the George Zimmerman verdict, maintaining that the case was not a racial issue and there is no reason to call Zimmerman a racist. (Really, Bill?) Despite his controversial views, Cosby remains an in-demand performer. Material from Cosby’s current tour will be included in his first comedy special in 30 years, Far from Finished, set to air Nov. 24 on Comedy Central.
