LOS ANGELES — Comedian Thomas Ward, who played Cliff Huxtable in X-Play's notorious porn parody "Not the Cosbys," has been selected as the opening act on the Las Vegas bill of Eddie Griffin now playing at the Rio Hotel & Casino.

If Ward's name sounds familiar it's because the Detroit born actor/director and funny man is America's number one impersonator of Bill Cosby.
 
"I have a lot of fun imitating Bill Cosby but nothing was as crazy as playing Cliff Huxtable in 'Not the Cosbys XXX' and now I get to open for Eddie Griffin in Vegas," Ward said. "I love my life because this shit is fun and Eddie is wildly funny and we're having a blast at the Rio."

Griffin is best known for his own rousing standup routines and acting roles in TV's "Malcolm & Eddie" and the "Deuce Bigalow" and "Undercover Brother" movies.
 
The show starts each night 7 p.m. with Ward hitting the stage in the King's Room at the Rio revving up the audience for Griffin. The spectators are pre-warned to expect a show that is "not for the faint of heart."  Tickets start at $71.50 and can be purchased at Ticket Master or from the Rio website and run from Sunday to Thursday.  The show is dark Friday and Saturdays and nobody under the age of 18 is permitted.

In addition to performing standup on this two-month Vegs run, Ward was recently lured back to Porn Valley by director Will Ryder to reprise his role as Dr. Cliff Huxtable and Bill Cosby in the soon-to-be released "Not the Cosbys XXX: Puddin' My Dick Where it Don't Belong." The movie will tackle the dozens of accusations thrown towards Cosby by an assortment of women all while maintaining his fatherly role as American's favorite dad. The movie will be available on VOD but will first be released on DVD by X-Play March 3 via Pulse Distribution.

"Puddin' My Dick Where it Don't Belong" is currently being edited so here is a quick look at Ward playing Cliff Huxtable in the SFW YouTube trailer for "Not the Cosbys XXX 2."

For upcoming wholesale DVD orders of "Not the Cosbys XXX; Puddin' My Dick Where it Don't Belong" contact Robert Plarski at Pulse Distribution at robert@pulsedistribution.com.
