One of America’s most beloved comedians of all time, Bill Cosby, has captivated generations of fans with his comedy routines, iconic albums and best-selling books, such as Fatherhood and I Didn’t Ask to be Born (But I’m Glad I Was). In the 1960s, his stand-up act was a coast-to-coast sensation, spawning a string of hilarious, best-selling comedy albums, which went on to win 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 with The Cosby Show, a gentle, whimsical and hugely successful series that single-handedly revived the family sitcom (and rescued NBC).
