From Philly.com:

NOT EVERYBODY knows what it’s like to be roasted by Bill Cosby, but Pamela Browner-White does.

The comedian went into a five-minute bit about her gown (by local designer Melani Von Alexandria) after the Marian Anderson Award chairwoman introduced Cosby to the crowd dining at the Kimmel Center before last night’s ceremony honoring Cosby for his humanitarian efforts.

Cosby gave special thanks to Gavin White, longtime Temple University track and football coach whom he credits with giving him an athletic scholarship to Temple. “I got a 500. After they saw my 300, they loaned me 200,” joked Cosby, who wore a T-shirt from Central High, his alma mater, as he addressed the crowd. At Temple, “I was in remedial English, remedial math. Remedial swimming.”
