Judd Apatow Slams Bill Cosby On ‘Tonight Show’
Judd Apatow took to the stage on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday night, and delivered a funny but dark stand-up routine that tore Bill Cosby to pieces.
Judd Apatow Slams Bill Cosby In ‘Tonight Show’ Stand-up
Cosby continues to be mocked and razed in the press, after the release of his 2005 court deposition, in which the comedian admits to buying drugs for the purpose of having sex with young women.
Apatow has been leading the charge against Cosby for months. The Trainwreck director, 47, did a stand-up routine on The Tonight Show for the first time since he stopped telling jokes on-stage at the age of 24.
Apatow started his routine off by poking fun at himself. “I know it’s not that exciting to see me, since I’m not that famous. This is my level of fame — If I’m walking down the street and someone says ‘Are you Judd Apatow?’ If I say ‘No’ they just go, ‘Alright!,’” the director joked.
Apatow then told the audience hilarious stories about his family life. “I live with three women. Three ages of the same women actually, and I’m like the weird guy in the house because they have so many things in common they can talk about,” Apatow explained.
Apatow’s stand-up act took a bit of a serious turn when he mentioned Cosby. “Cosby is still out on the road. Isn’t that weird? He’s like doing stand-up. What do you think his act is like? Do you think he’s still talking about it?” Apatow asked, before transforming his voice into a Cosby impression. “You ever been in trouble with the wife? You ever get into the dog house with the wife because of something you did?”
The director continued his Cosby imitation, but also added an impersonation of Bill’s wife, Camille Cosby. “The next day my wife said to me, ‘What is this in the paper about the raping and the drugging and the women?’ And I said, ‘Do you like your life? Do you like the house, the jet? Then have a cappuccino and shut the f—- up!’” Apatow ended with a bow.
