Bill Cosby - Coronado Performing Arts Center
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. His comedy transcends age, gender and cultural barriers. Cosby broke television's racial barrier with I Spy, becoming the first African American to costar on a television series while winning three consecutive Emmys. He created and produced the Emmy-winning cartoon Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids, which began airing in the 1970s and was made into a film in 2004. Perhaps Cosby's greatest contribution to American entertainment and culture is The Cosby Show, which dominated the #1 spot for years.
