WATCH: Bill Cosby’s Bizarre Appearance on Colbert Report
Bill Cosby, who’s working on a new NBC sitcom and was recently the subject of a long profile in The New Yorker, appeared on The Colbert Report last night. And he did a very weird bit.
“Betsy Ross asked me if she wanted to — if she could do a flag,” Cosby says to open the interview. “And I said no. Betsy Ross did the flag because George Washington heard that I had turned her down.” He eventually gets Colbert to rip up his cards, and makes silly noises with his mouth. It’s a classic rambling Bill Cosby bit. The best part is probably how he refuses to let Colbert praise him as a comedy legend.
There’s an extended cut, too.
