About Bill Cosby

The legendary comedian, actor and author makes his Music Hall debut after a career spanning five decades in virtually all media. In the 60s, his stand-up act was a coast-to-coast sensation, spawning a string of hilarious, best-selling comedy albums, which went on to win five Grammy Awards. His role on tv’s I Spy made him the first African-American to co-star in a dramatic series, breaking tv’s racial barrier and winning three Emmy Awards. In the 80’s he starred in the hugely successful The Cosby Show, a gentle, whimsical approach to the sitcom. It’s clear – Bill Cosby is a national treasure. Don’t miss this show!
