Bill Cosby at the Riverside Theater
The crazy-sweater-wearing, pudding-peddling comedian comes to Milwaukee May 18.

Between his crazy sweaters, pudding peddling and eight seasons spent teaching Theo about responsibility while perfecting the art of making sandwiches, it’s easy to pigeonhole Bill Cosby in the role of TV dad. But before his 201-episode run as Cliff Huxtable on “The Cosby Show” and array of quotable Jell-O ads, Cosby spent decades delighting audiences the world around, selling millions of comedy albums and inspiring comedians with his sidesplitting anecdotes and showmanship. Even at a spry 75, the groundbreaking funnyman, author, actor and scholar can still bring down a house, while maintaining his all-age appeal and even sprinkling in a lesson or two along the way.

➞ Bill Cosby (May 18). Riverside Theater. 116 W. Wisconsin Ave., 414-286-3663, riversidetheater.org.
