Bill Cosby

Receives standing ovation

21 Nov, 2014

Cosby’s show in Melbourne, Florida begins with a standing ovation from the sold-out crowd. Cosby discusses a local radio station offering cash and prizes to heckle the comedian in a pre-show interview with Florida Today.

So today I was informed of this radio station that is offering money for people to stand up and heckle in order to collect prizes and money. The thing is, these people are prodding and pushing people and asking people to have a frat house mentality. Now suppose someone brings a weapon or decided to do more foolishness. There will be announcements made and the stations made some disclaimers, but what if people don’t listen to what they said and they entice violence? That’s not good for anyone.
