Bill Cosby Gets the Trial America Craves on Inside Amy Schumer


On last night’s episode of Inside Amy Schumer, Bill Cosby was finally taken to court—the “court of public opinion,” that is. Luckily for Cosby, he had the best defense in the business.

“Did anyone feel raped by that?,” Schumer asked the jury, after showing them a clip from The Cosby Show. “How about drugged? No? Me neither. I felt comforted by a familiar father figure. Nostalgia. Laughter. Not guilty.” Logic: Who needs it?! Certainly not Bill Cosby.

Her closing argument, though, is positively artful: “If convicted, the next time you put on a rerun of The Cosby Show, you may wince a little. And none of us deserve that. We deserve to dance like no one’s watching, and watch like no one’s raping.”
