WATCH: Amy Schumer Defends Bill Cosby in Mock Rape Trial, Might Be the Next Bachelorette
If there’s anyone who would have gone there, it’s Amy Schumer.
In Tuesday’s (May 26, 2015) episode of Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer, the comedian played the role of Bill Cosby’s defense attorney, in a fictional representation of his trial in the Court of Public Opinion.
Let’s remind ourselves what’s at stake here. If convicted, the next time you put on a rerun of The Cosby Show you may wince a little. Might feel a little pang. And none of us deserve that. We don’t deserve to feel that pang. We deserve to dance like no one’s watching, and watch like no one’s raping.

But if life as a lawyer doesn’t work out for the 33-year-0ld, she can always be next year’s Bachelorette. After earning rave reviews on social media for her guest appearance on this week’s episode of The Bachelorette, ABC senior vice president Robert Mills offered her a spot on the popular show.
