Bill Cosby Appears to be relishing his time behind bars where he’s been lecturing fellow inmates on staying out of trouble and being a role model for their kids, according to his spokesman.
The comedian has been doling out advice to crowds of more than 100 prisoners in as many as four lectures a week,
“These are the types of men he has wanted to get his messages across to for years, and now he has a totally captive audience,” said his spokesman Andrew Wyatt.
Most of Cosby’s work is with Man Up, a group for inmates who are about to be paroled, where he pontificates about life lessons and not getting arrested again.
The fallen funnyman, who weaves humour into his talks, also urges inmates to set good examples for their children and gives advice on finding work post-incarceration and job interview tips. The prison talks touch on substance abuse and how to stay clean.
The 81-year-old felon formerly known as “America’s Dad” was convicted last year of drugging and molesting Andrea Constand and sentenced to three to 10 years.
