Cosby’s successes span five decades and virtually all media, a remarkable accomplishment for a kid who emerged from humble beginnings in a Philly project.
In the 1960s, his stand-up act was a coast-to-coast sensation, spawning a string of hilarious, best-selling comedy albums that won eight Gold records, five Platinum records and five Grammy Awards. His role on TV’s “I Spy” made him the first African-American to costar 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 gentle, whimsical, and hugely successful series that single-handedly revived the family sitcom. His hits continued with movies like “Uptown Saturday Night” and the best-selling book “Fatherhood.”
