Bill Cosby is one of America’s most beloved entertainers. Over the past century, few performers have achieved the legendary status of William H. Cosby, Jr. He is one of America’s most beloved entertainers with successes that span five decades and virtually all media. Cosby returns to Texas Performing Arts for two performances of classic stand-up, October 28 at Bass Concert Hall. In the 1960s, Cosby’s stand-up act was a coast-to-coast sensation, spawning a string of hilarious, best-selling comedy albums, which went on to garner eight Gold records, five Platinum records, and five Grammy Awards. His role on TV’s I Spy made him the first African-American to co-star in a dramatic series, breaking television’s racial barrier and winning three Emmy Awards. In the 1980s, he again rocked the television world withThe Cosby Show, a hugely successful series that single-handedly revived the family sitcom and NBC ratings. With hit movies like Uptown Saturday Night and best-selling books likeFatherhood, Bill Cosby is quite simply a national treasure with the unique ability to touch people’s hearts.
