WATCH: Amy Schumer Defends Bill Cosby in Hilarious Comedy Central Sketch
On last night’s episode of Inside Amy Schumer, one sketch found star and creator Amy Schumer playing Bill Cosby‘s defense attorney in the “court of public opinion.” Once the prosecution finishes its case, Schumer flips on a jukebox playing a Cosby-esque ditty then dances around like the Huxtables did in the Cosby Show intros. “I’m talking about a beloved show that we love,” she pleads to the jury. “This is about us not punishing ourselves for loving great comedy. … Let’s remind ourselves what’s at stake here: If convicted, the next time you put on a rerun of The Cosby Show, you may wince a little. You may feel a little a little pang. And none of us deserve that!”
She also uses pudding pops and a bunch of Cosby sweaters to persuade the jury of Bill Cosby’s innocence. It’s all tongue-in-cheek, though, as you might imagine. In the end she outwardly declines a martini Cosby has delivered to her for defending his innocence. Check it out above.
Philly’s Abbi Jacobson and her Broad City co-star Ilana Glazer also starred in a sketch of Inside Amy Schumer last night, with Bill Nye the Science Guy. That’s below:
