I never thought he'd perform again.  This takes some balls.

http://www.vulture.com/2018/01/bill-cosby-does-surprise-stand-up-at-philly-club.html?utm_content=buffer99a35&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer

Bill Cosby surprised some in the audience in Philadelphia  tonight when he performed a stand-up routine at Club LaRose on Germantown Avenue. The 80-year-old comedian is back in Philadelphia where he will face aggravated indecent assault charges alleging that he drugged and sexually assaulted a woman in his Montgomery County home. The trial against Cosby ended in a hung jury last June. The second trial gets started April 2.

Montgomery County D.A. Kevin Steele recently filed a motion to allow as many as 19 women to testify in the second trial. Each of the women has accused the comedian of drugging and sexually assaulting them. There’s no word on whether Judge Steven O’Neill will allow the witnesses. O’Neill is the same judge who presided over the first trial against Cosby, and he did not allow a similar motion last year. There are rumblings that things could change, however, in light of other allegations against famous men, as well as the efforts of both the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements.

Cosby didn’t discuss his impending trial during his set, which he announced only a few hours before on Facebook. Instead, the event kicked off at 5 p.m with music by the Tony Williams Jazz Quartet, and Cosby joined the band to tell a few jokes that were very reminiscent of his classic stand-up. He told stories that mostly centered on funny anecdotes from his own childhood, like the time he asked his Uncle William why he wasn’t white like the baby hanging from the stork’s beak. “Coffee,” the uncle told him. He also poked fun at his visual impairment.

Wearing a sweatshirt that said “hello friend” in multicolored letters, Cosby performed for a little more than an hour. At different times throughout the act he referred to his wife Camille and his daughter, who he called “a very intelligent lady.” The audience seemed to welcome him at the intimate club. One young man at the bar said he stopped in for a drink and had no idea he would see Dr. Huxtable telling jokes.

Before meeting with a few audience members for handshakes and photos, Cosby sat in with the band, playing the drums and at one point bringing the 11-year-old son of the bassist on stage. When Cosby asked the boy if he knew who he was, the boy told him, “You used to be a comedian.”

I don't care what anybody says, I still like Bill Cosby. And I don't believe everybody that has come out against him. If he did it to one woman, it's one too many, but I think there are a bunch of women that wanted a payday and some attention, and then there is maybe the one or two that he screwed over at a time when he was probably screwed up himself (not that it's an excuse).

Considering over 50 woman have accused him, even if more than half are lying he still raped a couple of dozen minimum. Plus he’s been taped confessing to drugging women with ludes. Come on.

I still like him.  And in the ‘70s, there’s no doubt the women were freely and gladly taking qaaludes- and I guarantee that you personally know at least one somebody 10-15 years older than you that got some chick fucked up on ludes and then fucked the living shit out of her, because I do.  And it was not a big deal then.  Rape back then was beating the piss out of a Chick before you ripped her clothes off, there was no such thing as date rape.
Doesn’t make any of it right, doesn’t mean Bill Cosby was right for doing it, but come on...at some point, the statute of limitations should have run out on this.

I feel like even in the '70s it was frowned on to actually knock a woman unconscious and fuck her.  Pretty sure that holds true for both the 1970s and the 1870s, too.

You are missing the point of the '70s being a time when women were freely taking qaaludes to get fucked up before they fucked.  And you aren't going to make me dislike Bill Cosby.  The only thing that ever made me dislike Bill Cosby was when he introduced the Brown Hornet to the Fat Albert cartoons...automatic channel changer.

But that's totally different than what Cosby did.  These women weren't consenting to taking ludes to get fucked up or to get fucked, they were getting slipped mickeys and woke up wondering why they were naked.  The stories are consistent enough with over 50 women saying the same thing that it's very clear that was Cosby's MO for many years.  Even if you think half of them are lying/exaggerating, and some certainly are, Cosby's still a serial rapist with a couple dozen victims.  This is not a Woodstock situation where everyone there was about drugs and free love and didn't give a shit about what happened or who it happened with.

50 women didn't say the same thing  it is the same issue with Weinstein stories come into one when some of them aren't close to the same issue. 
My opinion of Cosby is Quaaludes was his thing just like some guys use weed and alcohol  and some of these females who messed with him were cool with it back then but feel a certain way about it now but  nobody will tell me Cosby was drugging white woman in 1968 and he was so powerful she was terrified to tell when just few yrs prior a kid got hanged for whistling at a white woman and successful blacks neighborhoods were burned down off the strength of a white woman accusations can't believe those ones.

You have to be more specific. Are we talking about being knocked out by Rorer Quaaludes or Lemmon Quaaludes?

Cosby was a money machine in the 1960s. He was making millions for Warner Brothers Records, NBC, the Vegas casinos. He had a lot of big money and power behind him.
