What does Bill Cosby have in common with the Easter Bunny? They will both be on Maui in March! There are a lot of great events on Maui in March, below is a list of the notable happenings for our island…
Bill Cosby at the MACC on March 29th (Friday) at 7:30 PM.
A national treasure of comedy, television, literature and recording arts, Bill Cosby’s career spans five decades and virtually all media. In the 1960s, his stand-up act was a coast-to-coast sensation, spawning a string of hilarious, best-selling comedy albums, which went on to win five Grammy Awards. His role on TV’s I Spy made him the first African-American to co-star in a dramatic series, breaking television’s racial barrier and winning three Emmy Awards. In the 1980s, he again rocked the TV world with The Cosby Show, a hugely successful series that single-handedly revived the family sitcom. Since then, Cosby has been writing, teaching and touring. Ticket prices will be $45, $55, $75, $85, $115 (plus applicable fees).
