Bill Cosby's dishing out parenting and life advice to his fellow inmates. Cosby works most with a group called "Man Up", inmates set for parole, talking life lessons, keeping out of trouble and not getting locked up again.
Remember he was convicted of drugging Andrea Constand, as well as aggravated indecent assault, for which he got a 3 to 10-year sentence.
Bill's rep, Andrew Wyatt, says the famous inmate's a busy man behind bars with as many as 4 lectures per week. He's been doing this for around 3 months ... with crowds that often swell to more than 100 fellow prisoners.
Cosby's pitch…that the inmate's lead by example for their kids and stay outta prison in the future. Cosby's urging the inmates to re-bond with their kids immediately upon getting out. Cosby's clearly trading on his all-American dad image from "The Cosby Show", and it's resonating with the prisoners, according to TMZ.
We're told Cosby's also lecturing on finding work post-prison, giving them tips on interviewing techniques. He also lectures on substance abuse -- tips on how to stay clean. As you know, Cosby was convicted of drugging Andrea Constand, as well as aggravated indecent assault, for which he got a 3 to 10-year sentence.
And, he's mixing in his life lessons with comedy, which is laced through the lectures.
And according to his rep, Wyatt: "These are the types of men he has wanted to get his messages across to for years, and now he has a totally captive audience."
