The television show, "The Cosby Show," is one of Cosby's greatest contributions to American entertainment and culture. Dominating the No. 1 spot for years, the show earned nearly unanimous critical praise. Time magazine called the show "an encouraging sign of maturity in matters of race."
His work has captivated generations of fans with his comedy routines, iconic albums and best-selling books such as "Fatherhood" and "I Didn't Ask to Be Born, But I'm Glad I Was." His comedy transcends age, gender and cultural barriers.
Cosby has received the Kennedy Center Honors, the Presidential Medal of Freedom (America's highest civilian honor), the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor and the Marian Anderson Award.
