Warner ("The Cosby Show," "Malcolm & Eddie" "The Sherri Shepherd Show") was advertised as a headliner, but the show was a revue featuring multiple acts. He only spent 15 minutes on stage after intermission. Still, the crowd lapped up his sensual verbal aptitude, backed by a jazz band.
At one point, someone yelled, “One more, Theo!” He looked peeved and started haranguing the crowd in less-than-pleasant terms for referencing his character from years’ past. The audience hushed. But then he broke into that Cosby-esque smile, indicating he was just messing with them. “Theo,” he said, “has been good to me.”
