Iconic comedian and actor Bill Cosby is returning to the Palace Theatre this weekend to celebrate 50 years of laughter. Cosby last performed at the Palace in 2008. Mike Moran, Executive Director of the Palace Theatre, says he's looking forward to Cosby's arrival.
Moran says Cosby has a talent for engaging his audience. According to Moran and countless reviews, Cosby is known for his storytelling approach to comedy, setting up detailed scenarios before hitting the audience with the punch line.
During a phone interview, Cosby says he realized he had a knack for storytelling after his Remedial English college professor praised him for a 750-word paper he wrote. Cosby says his essays later became comedy routines.
The comedian also recalled his elementary school days. Contrary to popular belief, Cosby says he was far from a class clown. Cosby spoke of when he got his first big break on the tonight show, performing a routine called karate. Today family life is a common topic in Cosby's performances.
Cosby will take the stage Saturday at 8 p.m. For tickets and more information, visit www.SCAlive.org
