* SecretWeapon: Buck Buck, a game about who can get dogpiled longer without falling down. Bill and his friends had crazy endurance, and so did the kids from [[WrongSideOfTheTracks "the rough part of town"]], (to the point of [[NoSell no-selling]] it). The thing is, those kids didn't have Fat Albert - described by Cosby as weighing 2,000 pounds and causing earthquakes when he ran up.

** His account of tasting some of the local chili sauce in Mexico, during his "Foreign Countries" routine:
--->And so then they brew this old chili sauce and everything, and right away the smell starts getting to you. And you say, "Oh, man, I gotta have some of that." And your stomach says, "No, you don't." But your mouth says, "Yeah, gimme some." ...And you drink an orange soda, right, and the next thing, '''PAIN!!''' Then you die.

In November 2013, Cosby did his first stand-up special in nearly 30 years, ''Far From Finished'', which aired on Creator/ComedyCentral. To date, this has been his last hurrah. While Cosby had been dodging sexual assault accusations since 2002, things kicked into high gear in 2014 and 2015, when a young comedian brought it to public attention and least ''55'' women came forth accusing him of sexual assault, [[FallenCreator permanently damaging]] [[CreatorKiller his public image]] [[OvershadowedByControversy and more or less ending his career]]. As of July 2016, he has also lost his eyesight and is considered legally blind. He was charged with several sexual assaults and is set to go on trial for them in 2017; a conviction WILL end his career for good.

* HarsherInHindsight: In one of his 80s comedy skits, Cosby told the audience how his daughters were furious at his son Ennis for not lifting the toilet lid. "I don't think he's going to live much longer," Cosby said. In 1997, Ennis Cosby was shot to death in Los Angeles during a failed robbery attempt.

* ControversyProofImage: Subverted in the end, but it's easy to forget that Cosby had rape accusations levelled against him for ''decades'' before they finally stuck. Most of the allegations, for various reasons, simply never got traction in the press and even when one made it to trial in 2004 (ultimately settled out of court), no one seemed to pay it much mind. Up until 2015, he was still considered a well-regarded, family friendly icon.
