Frequently Asked Questions
What topics does Bill Cosby like to cover in 2014?
Bill Cosby is traditionally a rather clean comedian, contrary to his opposite, the late Richard Pryor whom Cosby has openly admitted enjoying and respecting. But Cosby’s squeaky clean persona and insightful points on life is not without some raw introspection. It may not be traditionally dirty, but it is important and true. One of Cosby’s most popular comedic tropes is his 50+ year marriage, which he covers with self-deprecating truthfulness.
He also touches often on his time in the 90’s, on the Bill Cosby Show and Fat Albert. He wraps this rich history of character in his act by doing impressions and providing some behind-the-scenes contextual humor.
Bill Cosby is from a bygone era, and a lot of his humor comes from this vintage 40’s flair, touching on racial stereotypes and parenting in this time period. He also loves to touch on his old age in a very self-deprecating way, which is part of Cosby’s charm. The fact is, his style and approach remains rather consistent, and he leans into his rich history and favors his own image to the comfort of the audience.
How long is a Bill Cosby set?
Bill Cosby hit a rather impressive 90 minute set length, which is a bit longer than the more typical 60-65 minutes in 2012 and sets preceding. But he has beefed up his 2014 shows. Firstly, it is one of the larger tours he has done in the last half a decade. His show reaches close to two hours long. It is worth saying that Cosby does pad his show with some video footage. He opens the set with about five minutes of edited together footage following clips and stand-up bits from Cosby’s four decades in comedy and showbiz. He then takes a break halfway through the set, and shows video footage of his days on Kids Say the Darnedest Things. Cosby also inter-disperses video footage of various couple interviews which help place a certain bit in context. Ultimately, it is 90 minutes of stand-up with roughly 30 minutes of relevant and always entertaining video.
Is it true Bill Cosby sits the whole show?
It is true, and interestingly, it works perfectly. When Cosby is talking about the clichés of being married and the troubles of raising five children, he does it in this laid-back and relaxing manner. Bill Cosby is not playing a character in this sense. He is exactly who he says he is and he has done exactly what he says he has done. It is not necessarily the most popular comedic style in 2014, but Cosby has earned it over the years. Cosby is not a punchline driven comedian. He weaves long and detailed stories about his childhood and fatherhood, and uses his whole body in a way that expounds on the story.
What is Bill Cosby working on now?
Fans looking to stay updated with Cosby’s work may be a bit disappointed. The comedian has stayed rather quiet in the last couple years. He has done a few small theatre tours, but has remained outside of showbiz in general. He recently released his first stand-up special in close to thirty years. It is called Far From Finished, and it was released in November of 2013.
This is what bill Cosby is actively touring in promotion of, and a lot of the topics covered in the special are reenacted in a slightly modified form for his 2014 tour.

“Cosby, who at 75 looks like an affable every-grandpa, used the creation story in the Bible and his long marriage to build his sold-out set on Friday in Overture Hall, where he stopped as part of a national tour. Perceptive, goofy and unfailingly clean, Cosby has built a career on finding the humor in tiny domestic moments, from making breakfast for his kids (or not) to changing the thermostat in “the room she gave to you.” – Lindsay Christians of Madison Entertainment
“Take note, young comics and wannabe-comics, Cosby did a show that clocked in at twice the length of many comics’ sets, and had the crowd roaring with laughter throughout the evening, without even once using the “F-word” or the “S-word” or any of the other standard “urban” obscenities. Instead of using the “four-letter” and “six-letter” and “12-letter” words that so many comics rely on Cosby used his skill as character actor to create a cavalcade of characters that percolated through his storytelling.” – John Berger of Honolulu Pulse Star Advertiser
“Bill Cosby took the sold out crowd at Centerstage for a ride Friday night. As the elder statesman of comedy told meandering stories about his childhood and adolescence, he took off his shoes, crawled on the floor, knocked over a tissue box and just when you thought he forgot where he was going, you were there. And yes, getting there was half the fun.” – Craig Belcher of Style Weekly
