Today we celebrate top American stand-up comedian and actor Bill Cosby!
The world famous Stand-up comedian became known for starring on his own sitcom The Bill Cosby Show, which aired from 1984 to 1992. He later created the comedy series Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids which were warmly received across the globe as well.
In 1965, he starred in I Spy, and a couple years later he won a Best Comedy Performance Grammy Award for his album To Russell, My Brother, Whom I Slept With.
The star has been the subject of publicized sexual assault allegations which consequently led to numerous organizations severing ties with the comedian with previously awarded honors and titles revoked.
Cosby’s trial started on June 5, 2017, and ended in mistrial on June 17. However, upon failing to reach a verdict last month, Bill Cosby has not been let off the hook as another trial has been scheduled for November.
He married Camille Hanks in 1964, and they had five children named Erika, Erinn, Ensa, Evin, and Ennis.
Here’s wishing Cosby a Happy 80th Birthday!
