Bill Cosby at The Morrison Center 

Friday, April 4

Dig into your grandfather's closet, or run to the nearest thrift store and pick out the best funky-fresh grandpa sweater you can find, because America's favorite TV dad, Dr. Huxtable, is coming to town.

At 76 years old, comedic legend Bill Cosby hasn't slowed down; if you doubt his physical stamina, witness Cosby's March 26 appearance on the Tonight Show, when he carried host Jimmy Fallon across a tightrope--on his back. The title of his current tour says it all: "Far From Finished."

Drawing on a lifetime of material, including raising five children of his own and almost 10 years as the eponymous pater familias of The Bill Cosby Show, Cosby has throughout his career gravitated toward the comedy inherent in childhood and family life (he also created the show Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids, starred in the kids' TV show The Electric Company and did a two-season stint as host of Kids Say the Darndest Things).

Though some of his material may be less family friendly than what we know from The Cosby Show, his observations remain as wry and true-to-life as ever.

Don't miss this chance to see one of America's most revered and beloved comedians--a Television Hall of Fame inductee, winner of the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor and recipient of a Presidential Medal of Freedom--when he comes to Boise Friday, April 4.
