Far From Finished hits Comedy Central on November 24–Bill Cosby’s first special in 30 years.
“Because… funny is funny,” Cosby stated as his reason to return to the stage after so long. Cosby performed Bill Cosby: Himself
in 1983 which was his last stand up. The routine was mainly poking fun at family life influenced by first hand experiences. His stand up is now considered a classic and influences many aspiring comedians today.
Followed by his 1983 act was The Cosby Show which premiered on NBC in 1984 and became his most well known claim to fame. Far From Finished will be directed by Robert Townsend. Bill Cosby’s original 1983 routine can be found on YouTube in two parts if you would like to see it.
As a side note, Cosby is hosting a sweater tournament on his website.
