Published

Last week, comedian Hannibal Buress fired several shots at fellow comedian Bill Cosby and now he is addressing the comments and allegations made during his show.

During Buress’ set at the Philadelphia’s Trocadero Theatre on Thursday night, the New York native slammed Cosby, even going as far as to call him “a rapist” and “the fu**king smuggest old black man public persona that I hate.”

During an interview with Howard Stern on Tuesday morning, the Burress not only addressed the comments made about the 77-year-old, but also defended his jokes.

“It’s a weird thing,” he said. “Somebody filmed my show in Philly, [but] I’ve been doing that bit off and on for six months, talking about the Cosby situation. But it’s just information that’s out there, you know?”

In 2005, a woman filed a lawsuit alleging that Cosby had drugged and raped her two years earlier. 13 other women also come forward accusing the comedian of rape, but none of the complaints resulted in charges against the former The Cosby Show star.

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
