Joe Wertz: Bill Cosby Live at the Civic Center (Oct 14, 2010)

Bill Cosby is in Oklahoma City on Sunday, not that he’s a hard guy to find.  He’s everywhere. If there’s a credit — Bill Cosby has it.  There’s books, like the best-selling Fatherhood and 2007’s Come on People!, which comments on race and culture in America.

And albums. Cosby’s on dozens of them, both comedy and musical releases.  Awards, too.  Emmys and Grammys, a Mark Twain Prize for American Humor and a Presidential Medal of Freedom.  And, there’s television — a format that his comedy helped define with roles on “I Spy,” “The Electric Company,” “Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids,” and, of course, “The Cosby Show.”

Bill Cosby has been a part of popular culture for more than 40 years. These days, he’s pretty much like he’s always been. His act and delivery haven’t really changed that much over the decades, but don’t make the mistake of thinking Cosby might be out of touch or behind the times.  He’s a classic. And his live show still sells out theaters everywhere.

Cosby performs 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. Sunday at the Civic Center Music Hall in downtown Oklahoma City.  He’s a throwback act. The kind of larger-than-life entertainer who knows where he wants to take you and exactly what he wants to say.

For the Oklahoma Gazette, Central Oklahoma's independent weekly, I'm Joe Wertz.
