(Source) CH: Oh, I was in Atlantic City playing, doing stand-up, and he was doing stand-up in Atlantic City in the same hotel, and at like three o’clock in the afternoon, someone from the hotel came down and said, “Oh, you know, Mr. Cosby would really like to meet you up in his hotel suite.” And I thought, That’s really weird. This was like ten years ago. And I said, That’s really weird. I don’t want to go alone. I go, I don’t know him. So the three guys I was with—thank God these guys were with me. One was filming and one was like a producer; we were filming something—I brought them up with me to his room and thank God I did, because now I know what would’ve happened if I went up there alone. And I forgot about it when all the stories about Bill Cosby came out. I was like, I didn’t even think of it. Then my friend texted me the other day saying, “Do you remember that night we went up to, or that afternoon we went up to Bill Cosby’s and you were so freaked out you made us come with you?” And I said, Yeah, and he said, “Hello! You could’ve been one of his victims if we weren’t there.” And I went, “Oh my gosh …” Yeah, so yeah, he’s guilty.




I’m still in shock at the turn Bill Cosby’s career has taken. He went from America’s Dad, to everyone’s favorite Jello obsessed Uncle, to the guy who interviewed little kids saying stupid shit, to basically a verb for the word rape. Like this story I think is said partially in jest, especially the “Yeah, so yeah, he’s guilty” part, but still. I read it and thought, this is weird, you can’t really say this Chelsea but yeah, you probably did almost get Cosby’d there. Wild wild ride. A year ago Bill Cosby was the old guy who would pop up every time Temple University made the NCAA tournament now he’s the guy we all just assume eats rape for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. He’s full on Tyson Zone but specifically for rape. We’re at the point where people can say, oh yeah, I met Cosby, he didn’t rape me but he was thinking about it, and everyone is like ehhhhh, yeah probably, you’re probably right.




Nick Offerman was also part of this interview and this was like rape joke inception. Lets talk about rape jokes and how they are difficult to deal with also here’s a sneaky rape joke. I wish I was that smart.
