One of America’s most prolific comedians of all time, Bill Cosby has dazzled generations of fans with his comedy routines, also captured on his iconic albums and best-selling books such as “Fatherhood” and the groundbreaking “The Cosby Show.” His comedy transcends age, gender and cultural barriers.

Cosby broke television’s racial barrier with a role in “I Spy,” becoming the first African American to costar on a television series and win three consecutive Emmys for “Outstanding Lead Actor” in the dramatic series. The veteran comic hosted the Emmy-winning cartoon “Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids,” which began airing in the 1970s and was made into a film in 2004. The show, based on Cosby’s childhood in Philadelphia, was designed to educate and entertain.

In the 1980s, he 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). The show garnered 29 Emmy® nominations with six wins, six Golden Globe® nominations with three wins and ten People’s Choice Awards.
