Funny story from the oral history of "A Different World"

Vanity Fair:

Sinbad (Walter Oakes): I heard they were looking for a stand-up comic to warm up the studio audience, so I met with the producers, and Bill Cosby was there. I lied so much. They asked me if I’d done stand-up for a studio audience before and I said, “Yes, for Magnum, P.I.” They said, “Magnum, P.I. didn’t have a studio audience.”
