Bass Concert Hall

Part of the 2012-2013 Texas Performing Arts Season

One of America’s most beloved entertainers makes a return to the Bass Concert Hall stage for an evening of classic stand-up. Over the past century, few performers have achieved the legendary status of William H. Cosby, Jr. His successes span five decades and virtually all media.

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 garner 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 hugely successful series that single-handedly revived the family sitcom and NBC ratings.

With hit movies like Uptown Saturday Night and best-selling books like Fatherhood, Bill Cosby is quite simply a national treasure with the unique ability to touch people’s hearts. These performances are certain to sell-out!

‘’He shows us the delicious truths of our ordinary lives.’’
