Kenan Thompson has been keeping his Bill Cosby impression in storage lately. It was a wise move in the wake of the sexual assault allegations against Cosby, but the situation has changed a bit since last month's guilty verdict. While 35 women have accused Cosby, he's now been convicted on one count and will reportedly serve three to 10 years in jail.
Granted, that sentence came down a few weeks ago, so when a shrouded-in-darkness Kenan addresses his new cellmate Seth Meyers, it's not immediately obvious who he's supposed to be. Until Meyers says an almost-swear:
Meyers: I've never done time before. This friggin' sucks.
Thompson: Hey! You don't come in here with your filth and your foul, foul filth. You need to get a job!
At this point it's finally obvious who he is, and as Meyers sums it up, "Wow, Bill Cosby. On behalf of every one of your fans, it is so disappointing to be meeting you now." But Cosby doesn't seem to be as let down by prison:
I'm in jail and loving it! No kids with the darnedest things. Limited interactions with Camille. And when I was fighting incarceration, I had no idea that one of the staple foods of the prison system is Jell-O.
From there Thompson goes on to depict a pretty deranged and likely senile Cosby who has no idea why he's in jail or even apparently how jail works. Meyer's character actually sums up the skit quite well at the end, when he tells Cosby that under normal circumstances he'd feel bad for a senior citizen so out of touch with reality. But then... it is Bill Cosby.
