"…high quality…Cottonelle or equivalent?"

The Smoking Gun has ferretted out a contract for Bill Cosby’s personal appearances that is of special interest because in it, Cosby “now forbids promoters from advertising his hometown concerts in either the Philadelphia Inquirer or the Philadelphia Daily News.” A similar ban also exists on advertising in the Boston Globe. Cosby is/was upset about those newspaper’s coverage of his recent sex assault lawsuit.

Other requests include chilled Evian water, one roll of “high-quality toilet paper” and two bars of Neutrogena Bath soap (“Please remove the cardboard package and cellophane wrapper.”). Fascinating. And all we usually request is a waist-high stool onstage.
