What Larry Wilmore Thinks About Bill Cosby's Comedy Tour

The Nightly Show host also brings out comedian Mike Yard to share his thoughts.

Published January 21, 2015

New late night talk show host Larry Wilmore is off to a strong start as he kicked off the first episode of The Nightly Show on Monday night. After sharing his thoughts on the state of the Black protest on the debut episode, Wilmore is delving into more controversial territory with his second, discussing the recent Bill Cosby rape allegations.

The satirist starts the segment by mentioning actress Lena Dunham's comments comparing the Cosby scandal to the Holocaust. He then goes on to question why the public is not listening to the women who have since come forward.

After saying that it is in poor taste that Cosby continues his comedy tour and mentioning the recent heckling incident in Canada, Wilmore brought out comedian Mike Yard to humorously explain what the TV icon should have done.
