Jimmy Kimmel Invites Bill Cosby to the Stage at the Emmys 2016

Jimmy Kimmel Invites Bill Cosby to the Stage at the Emmys 2016

Jimmy Kimmel had several jokes up his sleeve at the 2016 Emmy Awards held at the Microsoft Theater on Sunday (September 18) in Los Angeles.

The 48-year-old comedian and host of the show tonight gave the crowd a shock when he introduced an unexpected award presenter.

“Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Bill Cosby,” Jimmy announced.

After some gasps and stunned looks from the audience, Jimmy clarified, “He’s not really here. I just wanted to see what you guys would do.”

Bill, of course, was definitely not at the show tonight, as he faces trial next year for numerous alleged sexual assault allegations.
