“Bill Cosby joins a short list of elite performers that have been to DPAC three times since our opening in 2008. It’s great to know that superstars like Cosby keep coming back, both because they love the atmosphere at DPAC and because Triangle audiences love to laugh. There is no better place to see great comedy than DPAC and this chance to present one of comedy’s legends is very special,” said Bob Klaus, GM of DPAC.

Perhaps Cosby’s greatest contribution to American entertainment and culture is The Cosby Show, about a close-knit, upper class black family. Cosby said his intent was to portray an American family. Time magazine called the show “an encouraging sign of maturity in matters of race.” The Cosby Show dominated the No. 1 spot for years, earning nearly unanimous critical praise. Life magazine described the program as “a gentle, whimsical, warmhearted” show whose “delicious ordinariness of its pleasures and tribulations has given millions a fresh, laughter-splashed perspective on their own domestic lives.”
