SPRINGFIELD - Popular comedian and actor Bill Cosby will perform at Sangamon Auditorium at the University of Illinois Springfield on October 5th, 2014.
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. May 9th, 2014.
The nine-time Grammy Award winner is on his "Far From Finished" tour. A recording of his recent television special went to No. 1 earlier this year on the Billboard comedy albums chart.
Cosby rose to fame in the 1960's on the strength of his comedy albums "Bill Cosby is a Very Funny Fellow … Right!" "I Started Out as a Child," and "Wonderfulness." His 1983 album "Himself" contains one of his best-known comedy routines, "The Dentist."
Cosby is also an Emmy Award winning actor for his role on the 1960's TV series "I, Spy." But he's probably best known for playing Dr. Cliff Huxtable on the enormously popular 1980's sitcom, "The Cosby Show."
Tickets cost $39.50, $49.50, $59.50 and $69.50. Tickets will be available starting May 9 at www.sangamonauditorium.org, or from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at 206-6160, or at the auditorium box office.
