WATCH: Larry Wilmore Absolutely Giddy Over Bill Cosby's Arrest

Larry Wilmore couldn’t stop excitedly shouting after opening his favorite present this holiday season: Bill Cosby’s mugshot.

“This is exactly what I wanted! How did you know?” the late-night host gleefully exclaimed as he held the framed photo to his chest.

Wilmore has had Cosby, who is accused of raping more than 50 women, in his comedy crosshairs for months now. His joy over the arrest of the man once considered “America’s Dad” was no surprise to anyone who has watched his frequent Cosby takedowns.

“We didn’t forget about you, motherfucker!” Wilmore shouted after showing news media footage of Cosby’s perp walk. “Neither did the justice system!”
