Over the past century, few entertainers have achieved the status of William H. Cosby Jr. His successes span five decades. Now he’s coming to Charlotte for two performances on April 25.

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. In the 1980s, he again rocked the television world with “The Cosby Show.”

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