Cosby was raised in Philadelphia and left school at the age of 15 to join the Navy, eventually earned his diploma, and went on to earn a doctorate in Education at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. 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 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. His second sitcom, Cosby, aired from 1996 – 2000 and during this time, Cosby also returned to his stand-up roots, hosting programs such as Kids Say the Darndest Things, as well as several game shows. He also became a popular spokesman, representing brands like 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. 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.
