Bill Cosby Knows Why We Laugh


Bill Cosby has joined a who’s who of black comedians for the Robert Townsend-directed documentary Why We Laugh: Black Comedians on Black Comedy, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The Codeblack Entertainment doc, inspired by a book by comedian and writer Darryl Littleton, is a no-holds-barred, raw, uncensored and truthful look at black comedy and its cultural influence. It also takes a critical examination of the social impact of black comedy and its notable artists.

Cosby joins a cast of comedians that include Chris Rock, Steve Harvey, George Wallace, Paul Mooney and Katt Williams, among others.
