On Friday night, Jerry Seinfeld appeared on “The Late Show with Steven Colbert,” and during his appearance, both Colbert and Seinfeld weighed in on Bill Cosby.

Seinfeld claimed that he was able to listen to Cosby’s standup albums without issue, but Colbert said that the allegations of sexual assault leveled against Cosby meant that he couldn’t do that anymore.

Seinfeld argued that Cosby as the “greatest body of work in comedy,” and Colbert responded that he, too, grew up listening to Cosby, even claiming that the comedian “saved my life” after a childhood tragedy. But even after listening to the albums “every night,” Colbert can’t do it anymore.

“I can’t listen to him now,” Colbert said. “I can’t separate it.”

“I know it’s tragic, but comedy, you know, there’s a lot of tragedy in comedy,” Seinfeld argued, pointing to Jerry Lewis as an example.

The two of them continued to talk even during the commercial break, with Seinfeld admitting when the cameras were rolling again that, after the chat, he had “realized it would bother me” to continue listening to Cosby’s albums.
