Imagine if the world did not have great artists like Michael Jackson or Bill Cosby, everything would be much duller. Laughter has always played a huge part in any person’s life. William Henry Cosby Jr. or Bill Cosby as he is known in the entertainment business is known to be one of the best stand-up performers there is and is known for his $350 million net worth. While Cosby was studying, he discovered that he can make people laugh thus describing himself being the class clown. He too became an athlete being the captain of the baseball as well as track and field teams while at the Mary Channing Wister Public School. When he transferred to Fitz Simmons Junior High, Cosby tried out acting in plays but still keeping up with his favoured sports. He then went to Central High School but had to transfer because he can’t keep up with his schedule: studying his lessons, playing various sports as well as working before and after school. At Germantown High School, he failed at tenth grade and then decided to get a job at a shoe repair shop. Because Cosby wanted more in his life, he decided to join the Navy and there worked in physical therapy. He knew that education is something that he needed and eventually got a track and field scholarship at Philadelphia’s Temple University. There he honed his talent in making people laugh and everything started to fall into place. Before he knew it, he was doing some stand-up acts in bars and then eventually made his way to the stage and television. Cosby even starred his own sitcom, named The Bill Cosby Show, and was also able to create an education cartoon comedy series, Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids. Cosby has made a huge impact in the lives of people especially when it comes to laughter. It will not come as a surprise that Bill Cosby will be known by future generations.
