OK, not exactly. The Cos was not actually listening to Sweet Lights while busting the dance moves you see below. It’s entirely possible that he’s not familiar with the infectious pop-rock hooks of Shai Halperin’s latest musical project. But mixing up an iconic Philly comic and a contemporary Philly musician was such a well-played, insanely satisfying video concept, that the announcement of Bill Cosby’s appearance at The Keswick Theater next spring is reason enough to resurrect the clip. Watch it below; if you haven’t already seen it, you’re in for a treat. And get your mouse-clicking fingers ready, since tickets go on sale at noon today for Bill Cosby’s appearance at the Keswick Theater on Sunday, April 3, at 3 p.m.
We featured Sweet Lights in a My Morning Download last week; you can download that song here. Below, listen to my favorite sketch from Bill Cosby’s mid-60s stand-up era.
