Cosby was raised in Philadelphia and left school at the age of 15 to join the Navy, though he eventually earned his diploma and went on to earn a doctorate in Education. Cosby debuted his stand-up act in the clubs of Philadelphia, which led to national exposure on The Tonight Show and a series of successful comedy albums in the 1960s—Cosby won seven Grammy Awards for Best Comedy Performance between 1965 and 1987. His act's success led to television roles on The Dick Van Dyke Show and the action series I Spy, for which he won three consecutive Emmy Awards.

He also became a popular spokesman, representing Jell-O, Kodak, Ford, and Coca-Cola. Cosby has been married to wife Camille since 1964, and the couple have four daughters and one late son.
