Lopez Jokes About Poor Childhood, Thanks Bill Cosby (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Dec 1st 2010 7:00AM
George Lopez Thanks Bill Cosby on 'Lopez Tonight'When Bill Cosby visited 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS), the subject of the host's humble beginnings came up. At Thanksgiving, they would have 14 people in the home, but food for about three, Lopez said chuckling.

"They tried to tell me that a Cornish game hen was a turkey from far away -- [that] when they took a picture of [the turkey] the camera was close, that's why it looked bigger." So the family gathered around the hen. "There wasn't even stuffing -- it was a wet roll inside," he joked.

"Why are you laughing? This is sad, man!" Cosby said. But the comedian noted, "You found humor somewhere." Lopez replied, "I turned it into comedy -- thanks to you and your influence on me."

What the heck does his skin color matter? (I am white btw) You need to get off that bandwagon already.

Cosby is the only black who will lash out at blacks for dropping out of school, getting pregnant as teens, selling crack, and blaming whites for their predicaments.

Bill thinks he is the voice of the black people in America. In truth, he is what black people despise--a star that has mde bucks and now thinks that all blacks should follow his path. Face it, Crosby had an easy life and probbly never had to answer to the bros in the hood why he was not hanging with them and now he berates his brothers for not being as fortunate. Plastic, phoney and off the radar with what is really happening Cosby needs to forget TV and join Andy Rooney, Dave Letterman and Bill O'Reilly in the bus to the home.

Bill Cosby had a huge influence on my life growing up also. I grew up poor in a dysfunctional setting. He gave me hope through his TV show "the Cosby Show" that there was a "normal" out there, and you could be whatever you wanted when you grew up if only you were willing to work hard. Yeah, it was a script, but he made it very believable to a kid. I live a successful and happy life right now. Thanks Bill!!! (and books)

Cosby might make a great secretary of education.I think he would make a huge contribution in turning the system around.
America ,depending on what report you read,is ranked between 27th and fiftieth in the world in education.

I am sorry but it woudl hlp for people to know the truth. George you were given the Tv opportunity by Governor Bill Richrdson who took the state of New Mexico tax papers moeny to apply taxes fromt eh citizens of New Mexico to the Film industry and you were hand picked by him.

The entire city of Santa Fe is loaded with Hollywood
and this is actually how you got into television- this my friend was before Bill Cosby came on your show- Just be honest- that is all people want . No gushy fake story. You had a horrrible self serving governors help. And you had some talent and you have goen from there. The people of New Mexico paid for your opportunity. Have a good career. but get real.
