Bill Cosby Coming to Van Wezel, 3/16
One of America's most beloved comedians of all time, Bill Cosby will be at the Van Wezel for two shows on March 16, 2014 at 3PM and 7PM.
Few entertainers have achieved the incredible status of Bill Cosby, including five decades of success and remarkable accomplishments especially for a child of humble beginnings, growing up in the Philadelphia Projects.
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.
Arguably one of Cosby's greatest contributions to American entertainment and culture is The Cosby Show. The show dominated the number one spot for years, earning nearly unanimous critical praise. Life magazine described the program as "a gentle, whimsical, warmhearted" show whose "delicious ordinariness of its pleasures and tribulations has given millions a fresh, laughter-splashed perspective on their own domestic lives."
In addition to hit movies, like Uptown Saturday Night and best-selling books, Cosby has received a string of prestigious awards including: the Kennedy Center Honors, the Presidential Medal of Freedom (American's highest civilian honor), the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, and the Marian Anderson Award.
Don't miss the opportunity to see this national treasure with his unique ability to touch people's hearts with his wholesome fun and laughter.
