Bill Cosby Is Coming To East Texas
TYLER- Few entertainers have achieved the legendary status of William H. Cosby Jr. His successes spans five decades and virtually all media; remarkable accomplishments for a kid who emerged from humble beginnings in a Philly project. Whether it be through concert appearances or recordings, television or films, commercials or education, Bill Cosby has the ability to touch people’s lives. His humor often centers on the basic cornerstones of our existence, seeking to provide an insight into our roles as parents, children, family members, and men and women.
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).
Bill Cosby is quite simply a national treasure with the unique ability to touch people’s hearts.
Cosby is coming to East Texas this April for two shows. Cosby will speak at the UTT Cowan Center, located at 3900 University Blvd in Tyler, on April 14, at 3:00 p.m. and again at 7:30 p.m.
