Bill Cosby at the Filene Center at Wolf Trap: Wow

Email  Print Print  

Last Friday I had the good fortune of winning tickets, through my company’s ticket giveaway program, to see Bill Cosby at Wolf Trap in Virginia. I, like many in my generation, am huge fan of the comedy icon that is Dr. Huxtable so seeing him live was a real treat. What was also nice was that because they were corporate tickets, we had access to the Encore Circle. The Encore Circle consisted of a few tents and a cabin beside the amphitheater and it was really nice to have a place to hang out an hour before and half an hour after the performance. They had complimentary coffee, tea, lemonade, soda, etc. and the tickets came with some free cocktails too. After the performance, they even had cookies!

Seeing Bill Cosby live was incredible and seeing him do stand-up (though he sat most of the time) for two and a half hours was unreal. The man is less than two weeks from his seventieth birthday and he was doing stand-up comedy for two and a half hours. At one point he was on his hands and knees giving some folks in the front row a nice grilling about parenting that had the crowd rolling.

His comedy is definitely for the older crowd, versus the just out of college crowd, but it was hilarious. If you ever have the opportunity to see him, snatch it up, he’s pretty good and the man is a legend!

    Very lucky of you to win those tickets. I didn’t know Bill Cosby was going on his 70th birthday. Hopefully I’ll be around for his next public appearance.

    My husband and I took my mother and aunt (both 70+ in age) to this performance. And I was most pleasantly surprised at how much I laughed. I knew he was funny, being 37 and of the ‘COsby Show’ generation, but I guess I wasn’t sure what he would be like at 70 years old. Well….WOWWW!!! We especially loved his marriage and child-raising stories….it made my husband and I realise we were typical in our idiosyncracies! 😀 I wish I could remember the name of old WWII Veteran he brought on stage though. I can’t wait to see his story if it is indeed being made for the movies. Can you recall his name?

    The veteran’s name is Lanier Phillips. He was one of only 42 survivors when the U.S.S. Truxtun sank off the south eastern coast of Newfoundland (the Burin Peninsula) in Chambers Cove, Ash Wednesday, February 18, 1942. The men of the Truxtun were rescued by the miners and citizens of St. Lawrence. The U.S.S. Pollux was also lost off of Lawn Point, but 142 sailors were rescued by 8 fisherman from the town of Lawn. In total, 203 men died from the two ships.
