OK, maybe “standup” is too strong a word. But Bill Cosby: Far From Finished (Nov. 23 at 8 p.m. on Comedy Central) will be the Cos’s first in-concert TV special in 30 years. That’s a long time, even for a legend.

So Philly’s favorite son – a Germantown High graduate – sits down through most of this 90 minute performance. The man is 76. And still hilarious. So he’s earned his seat.

In this clip, he drolly recounts the reaction he got when he told people which channel would be showing this long overdue special. Watch how he makes the audience fall out with a simple facial expression. Yep, still got it.
