Hannibal Buress Spoofs Bill Cosby's "Kids Say The Darndest Things"
And so it continues. Wednesday night saw Hannibal Buress once again pointing his creative crosshairs on Bill Cosby, this time with an outright parody of Kids Say The Darndest Things, which the disgraced 78-year-old comedian hosted regularly for over two years. Striking out onto the streets, Buress dubbed his new segment “Children Say Things That You Don’t Expect Them To Say Sometimes,” and quizzed the nation’s youth on matters of jokes, hip-hop lyrics, NBA stars, The Wire, Taylor Swift, television shows and plenty more.

You haven’t really laughed today until you’ve watch Buress stare a child in the face and ask “Do your parents put the Netflix kids filter on yours, so you can’t watch 9/11 documentaries?” See the full clip below and watch how coy coyness can get. The kids, well, they’re also just way too damn cute.
