Bill Cosby to take stage at ECU
● By Kathryn
East Carolina University and the S. Rudolph Alexander Performing Arts Series present Bill Cosby on Thursday, September 20, 2012 at 8:00 pm in Wright Auditorium on the campus of ECU.
Bill Cosby is one of the most influential stars in America. Author, comedian, rapper, actor and JELL-O spokesman, Cosby has a unique ability to touch his audiences’ lives. Cosby’s humor often centers on the basic cornerstones of our existence, providing an insight into our roles as parents, children, family members, and men and women. The Cosby Show, which aired from 1984 to 1992, earned him the famous title of America’s Dad.
Cosby has come to a point in his career where the world just wants to shower him with praises. In addition to his eight Gold Records, five Platinum Records, five Grammy Awards, and three Emmy Awards, he received a Kennedy Center Honor Lifetime Achievement Award in 1998, a Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2002 and the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor in 2009.
On February 12 of this year, Cosby was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame for his second comedy album, I Started Out As A Child. His collection of awards also includes Golden Globe, People’s Choice, and BMI among others.
