Bill Cosby to perform in Fort Wayne

Statement as issued Tuesday by the Embassy Theatre for the performance at 7 p.m. March 30:

Bill Cosby is coming to Embassy Theatre on Sunday, March 30th, and tickets are on sale this Friday, Dec. 6th at 10AM.

A legend that needs no introduction, Bill Cosby recently was seen on Comedy Central in his first television concert special in 30 years. Bill Cosby: Far From Finished premiered on Saturday, Nov. 23. As always, he crafted stories around topics that are familiar to most – relationships, marriage, and children – that he addresses with his singular point of view and renowned and celebrated sense of humor. Bill Cosby Himself aired three decades ago and is considered one of the landmark comedy specials of all time. The Cosby Show was in part an evolution of the “Himself” routines. One of America’s most beloved comedians of all time, Cosby has captivated generations of fans with his comedy routines, iconic albums and best-selling books such as Fatherhood. His comedy transcends ages, genders and cultures. Cosby went around television’s racial obstacles with I Spy, becoming the first African American to costar on a weekly, dramatic television series while winning three consecutive Emmys. Cosby created and produced the Emmy Award -winning cartoon series Fat Albert and The Cosby Kids, which began airing in the 1970s and was made into a film in 2004. The show, based on Cosby’s childhood in Philadelphia, was designed to educate and entertain. Perhaps Cosby’s greatest contribution to American entertainment and culture is The Cosby Show, about a close-knit, upper- middle- income Black family. Cosby has received the Kennedy Center Honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom (America’s highest civilian honor), the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor and the Marian Anderson Award.
