The Roots audition for Bill Cosby's funeral during the legendary comedian's latest appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. The Cos stages a mock wake on the set after explaining to The Roots that he doesn't want them to play "Sweet Georgia Brown" (his walk-on music). He announces that he would instead prefer one of their sandwiches. After being chided by Cosby for a drumroll, ?uesto counts the crew in while Black Thought drops gems worthy of a jazz funeral. Bill Cosby lies on the floor fixing his suit jacket and soaking it all up before stopping the band to tell them how mediocre they are. The most difficult part of his visit comes when it's time to get up off of the floor. Check the footage below to watch Bill Cosby and The Roots on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Stay tuned for more.
