Bill Cosby Live: Benefit Concert For SFJAZZ
Bill Cosby Live
“This is your place” Bill Cosby told the sold-out crowd at the historic, celebratory opening of the SFJAZZ Center. Cosby, whose improvisational approach to comedy is fueled by his lifelong passion for jazz, feels SFJAZZ is his place, too. He and his wife, Camille, were so taken with the new center and its vision that he promised to do a benefit for us.
We invite you to attend this very special solo evening of comedy by one of America’s most influential performers in support of the new SFJAZZ Center’s state-of-the-art facility. This is a rare chance to see this legend close up and in such an intimate setting.
Cosby came out of the Philly housing projects to become one of America’s most successful and influential performers, recording hit comedy records, shattering racial barriers on TV with his starring role on “I Spy” in the ‘60s and with the perception-changing “The Cosby Show” in the ‘80s, one of the most successful television series of all-time. A drummer and piano player who has been close with many great musicians, Cosby hosted the Playboy Jazz Festival in Los Angeles for 30 years and has put out his own funk-jazz records.
Premium tickets include a meet and greet reception with Bill Cosby. All tickets include a donation to support the SFJAZZ Center. Donation acknowledgments will be mailed to you following the performance.
