"Filth Flarn Filth" Never Happened, Says Cosby

raw21.jpgRyan Cormier of the Delaware News Journal scores a Bill Cosby interview which may debunk a legendary bit, from the times when historians will tell you that Eddie Murphy had comic chops, never woke up on the couch in a fat-suit-still-on sweat, and was allowed the leeway to harpoon Michael Jackson and raid his closet at the same time:

What about when you become part of their act? I guess the most famous one is Eddie Murphy’s “Raw.” Did he clear that with you first or did you hear about that when it first came out?

I heard about it when it first came out. But Eddie is a liar. And Malcolm-Jamal Warner was in the room in Lake Tahoe and heard me talk to Eddie on the telephone. And Malcolm knows that is not what I said to him.

Do you think that’s just Murphy stretching it out to make a good 20 minute part of his show about it?

No, this is a very nasty, nasty liar. Period. It wasn’t necessary. It was between us and what I was trying to explain to him. On top of that, there’s a reference to Richard Pryor and Richard called me later…Richard called and said, “Hey Bill, the thing that Eddie is saying I didn’t say that.” And I said, “I didn’t think you did.”

If you need a reminder as to significance of the words “Filth Flarn Filth” or “Tell Bill I said ‘Have a Coke and a Smile'” then you probably need to be told that this is some Not Safe For Work video material as well:

    I don’t think anyone ever assumed that Bill said that to Murphy. I didn’t. Comedy is an exaggeration, and that’s all Murphy was doing.

    If it came from anywhere, it came from Bill’s own standup comic show “Himself” in which Bill is talking about censoring yourself as a parent, and that you don’t want to say to your kids: “What the filth and I’ll bust your filthy-foul and I’ll filth your face, and yeah, you filthy-foul foul, and I’ll filthy your foul-filth.”

    IF it came from anywhere, it came from that. I really don’t think people should interpret any comic sketch as literal.
