Fun fact: Before he hit it big as a big-screen director, Judd Apatow kept busy on the stand-up comedy circuit. On Monday, he tried out some new material based on his off-camera roles as family man, member of the tribe, and one of Bill Cosby’s most vocal critics in Hollywood.

Apatow flexed his comedic chops on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” closing a short and boisterous set with a series of zingers about Cosby’s alleged history of sedative-aided sexual assault. The “Knocked Up” helmer’s convincing Cosby impression shows that Apatow has done a close study of his subject, and he’s clearly not about to let Cosby off the hook.
