Bill Cosby: Another One of My Favorite Comedians

The reason I think he is such a funny comedian is because he is. He does not cuss, or say anything bad. He talks about stuff in real life that has actually happened to people. He talks about stuff that happened to him that's probably happened to dozens of others. And the way he talks about it, it's funny. He's one of my favorites because he is just funny and also a good actor on TV
