Bill Cosby is currently behind bars after he was found guilty of three counts of aggravated indecent assault. From what reports claim, his experience has been quite peculiar. He’s reportedly acting like Dr. Cliff Huxtable and allegedly compared his stint behind bars to the great Nelson Mandela. While most people’s experience in prison isn’t the greatest, that doesn’t seem to be the case for Bill who’s spokesperson described his stint as an “amazing experience.”

Andrew Wyatt, Cosby’s spokesperson, sat down with WCAU in Philadelphia where he spoke about the comedian’s current prison stint. Wyatt said that Cosby’s been losing a lot of weight in prison — largely due to restraining himself from eating bread, dessert and drinking coffee. Wyatt also said that Cosby’s been working out while he’s in prison.
“He’s mentally strong, he’s just a strong man,” Wyatt said. “Despite the circumstances, he said that this is an amazing experience.”
Adding, “He used the term amazing experience.”
Wyatt also confirmed that he, aside from Cosby’s attorneys, is the only person who visited the comedian in prison. Cosby reportedly only speaks to his wife on the phone and has told her not to visit him while he’s imprisoned.
Cosby’s currently in prison for 3-10 years after he was convicted in September of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Costand at his home over 14 years ago.
