Hey, Hey, Hey! It’s Bill Cosby!

“Don’t consider yourself too hip to see me.” That was Bill Cosby’s confident message in a promo for his current standup comedy tour. In response, it would be a funny move for all attendees to rock their ugliest/hippest Cosby sweaters to the show. He will be at Seminole Hard Rock (1 Seminole Way, Hollywood) on Thursday. (Just a suggestion.)

It is through his role as the lovable Dr. Huxtable in The Cosby Show, his radically wholesome standup, and, of course, his sweet-as-puddin’ Jell-O pimpin’ that Cosby has chuckled his way deep into the psyche of the past two generations of Americans. Though “the Cos’" is coming up on his 75th birthday, he hasn’t slowed down a bit on the trail of comedy and mentoring. Recently, he has received lots of attention, positive and negative, for his criticism of black youth and parents, calling on them to “hold [themselves] to higher standards.” A well-rounded family man, he has always drawn on his memories of being a kid and his experiences as a husband and father for inspiration for his various projects. And there’s always been an intention to educate as well as provide a good laugh through his work. The doors open at 7 p.m., and tickets cost $39 to $69.
