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 2015, when at least ''55'' women came forth accusing him of [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil sexual assault]], [[BrokenPedestal permanently damaging his public image]] [[OvershadowedByControversy and more or less]] ending his career.

* ArsonMurderandJaywalking: During Bill's wife's labor pains. She stands up on the table in the stirrups, grabs Bill's bottom lip, yells at him for morphine, and tells everybody in the delivery room that his parents were never married.

* LoopingLines: Happens at least twice on the album version of ''Bill Cosby: Himself''. In addition to removing the entire skit on drugs and abridging several others (most notably the "natural childbirth" skit, which fades in on the TitleDrop), a flubbed line about "brain damage" is re-dubbed, and in the "chocolate cake for breakfast" skit, his accidental reference to being awakened at 4 o'clock in the morning instead of 6 has the correct time of "6 o'clock in the morning" looped in from later.



* ManipulativeEditing: The album version of ''Himself'' is seriously chopped down from the actual performance. The entire skit on drugs is removed, and many of the other tracks are abridged. But perhaps the most egreious edits are: at one point, a flubbed line about "brain damage" (see below) is re-dubbed, and in the "chocolate cake for breakfast" skit, his accidental reference to being awakened at 4 AM instead of 6 has the correct time of "6 o'clock in the morning" looped in.
