Bill Cosby has been a household name in terms of comedy for the past four decades, and this October 12th, for one night only, you'll have the chance to see his stand-up live at The Oak Ridge Boys Theatre.
While Bill Cosby's talents may shine through best when he's in front of a crowd and on a stage, he may be most noted in popular culture for his television career. He landed a co-starring role in I Spy (1965-1967) during a time that was extremely difficult for African-American artists. I Spy successfully helped Cosby launch his own show, The Bill Cosby Show. Throughout the seventies, Cosby went on to star in a number of movies and also created the iconic character Fat Albert. However, it was the 80's where Cosby began to fully realize his fame. From 1984 to 1992 Bill Cosby starred in The Cosby Show, which still runs in syndication to this day.
