Cosby won seven Grammy Awards for Best Comedy Performance between 1965 and 1987. His success in standup led to television roles on The Dick Van Dyke Show and the action series I Spy, for which he won three consecutive Emmy Awards. In the 1980s, Cosby launched one of the most successful sitcoms of all time called The Cosby Show. The show ran from 1984 to 1992 and is one of only two sitcoms to remain at the top of the Nielsen ratings for five consecutive seasons.

Cosby has been married to wife Camille since 1964, and the couple have four daughters and one late son. Since 2000, Cosby has been accused by numerous women of sexual assault and rape. He has denied the allegations, stating that the incidents were consensual, and has never been criminally charged. Most of the acts alleged by his accusers fall outside of statutes of limitations for legal proceedings. However, in 2015, two lawsuits against Cosby are pending, including one for defamation of character.
