One of America's all time most beloved comedians, Bill Cosby has captivated generations of fans with his comedy routines, iconic albums and best-selling books like Fatherhood. His comedy transcends age, gender and cultural barriers. Perhaps Cosby's greatest contribution to American entertainment and culture is The Cosby Show, which dominated the #1 spot for years. Cosby's first television special in 30 years, Far From Finished, premiered on Comedy Central last fall. As always, Cosby crafts stories around topics such as marriage and parenting with his singular point of view and renowned sense of humor.
