Bill Cosby practically raised a generation with his hit TV show, The Cosby Show. It should come as no surprise then that Cosby is channeling his character of the all-American dad and is lecturing fellow inmates about parenting, drug abuse, and life, in general.
According to Cosby’s rep Andre Wyatt, the famed actor/comedian has been holding his lecture series for about three months now and lectures around four times a week. He’s said to be urging inmates to reconnect with their children as a way of preventing another generation of men behind bars and has spoken to inmates about the importance of finding post-prison work. Cosby also spoke about staying clean and offered tips on living a drug-free lifestyle during his lectures that mix comedy, and paternal wisdom. Wyatt stated, “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.”
