The Houston Symphony Presents Bill Cosby, 1/24
The Houston Symphony is excited to announce a new addition to its 2014-15 Season. On January 24, 2015, one of America's most beloved comedians of all time, Bill Cosby, is coming to the Jones Hall stage for a special, one-night-only performance at 7:30 p.m.
Mr. Cosby has captivated generations of fans with his comedy routines, on his iconic albums and in his 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 I Spy, becoming the first African American to costar on a television series, winning three consecutive Emmys for "Outstanding Lead Actor" in the dramatic series. Perhaps Cosby's greatest contribution to American entertainment and culture is The Cosby Show, about a close knit, upper middle class black family, which was the top rated series for years in the 1980s.
