Few can deny the impact Dr. Bill Cosby has made in entertainment. From being the first African American to play a leading role in a TV show on NBC’s I Spy (1965-68) to making his self titled series The Cosby Show No. 1 on the same network almost 20 years later, he has withstood the test of time in Hollywood as a writer, producer, director, actor, composer and more. More than just an entertainer with over 2.3 million Twitter followers (@BillCosby), Cosby has managed to evolve his sphere of influence and remain relevant through his philanthropic efforts, advertising, public speaking, business acumen and involvement in academia.
