Time to Break Out Your Cosby Sweaters

If I had a nickel for every time my zippity zop flim-flammed my shim sham, I’d be Bill Cosby. The sweater-loving, saggy-pants-hating patriarch is coming to South Florida. Everyone knows him from The Cosby Show, but he’s also a bestselling author and broke many a racial boundary by costarring in I Spy — the first African-American to do so on television. That earned him three Emmys and the Hollywood cred to create shows like Fat Albert that targeted the often-ignored (at that time) demographic of African-American families. He successfully paved the way for shows like Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and gave children the greatest gift of all: Jell-O. On Sunday at 7 p.m. Cosby brings his transgenerational sense of humor to Hard Rock Live, located at 5747 Seminole Way in Hollywood. Tickets range from $54 to $84 and are available through Ticketmaster. Call 954-327-ROCK (1685), or visit seminolehardrockhollywood.com.
