Over the past century, few entertainers have achieved Cosby’s legendary status. His successes span five decades and virtually all media, remarkable accomplishments for a kid who emerged from humble beginnings in a Philly project.
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 “The Cosby Show,” a gentle, whimsical and hugely successful series that single-handedly revived the family sitcom (and rescued NBC).
With hit movies like “Uptown Saturday Night” and best-selling books like “Fatherhood,” Bill Cosby is quite simply a national treasure with the unique ability to touch people’s hearts.
