BILL COSBY CONCERT SPECIAL, "FAR FROM FINISHED," TO AIR ON COMEDY CENTRAL(R) NOVEMBER 24, 2013

"Far From Finished" Is Cosby's First Televised Concert In 30 Years

"Far From Finished" Is Directed By Robert Townsend

NEW YORK, July 12, 2013 - Bill Cosby's first television concert special in 30 years, "Far From Finished," will air on COMEDY CENTRAL November 24, 2013. Robert Townsend directed the show, which will be compiled from material that Cosby performed at the Cerritos Performing Arts Center earlier this summer.

Darryl M. Bell, Judi Marmel, Robert Hartmann and Stu Schreiberg are Executive Producers of the concert event, a production of Levity Productions.

"Bill Cosby Himself" aired three decades ago and is considered one of the landmark comedy specials of all time. "The Cosby Show" was in part an evolution of the "Himself" routines.

Commenting on his return to the form, Cosby said, "Because . . . funny is funny."

One of America's most beloved comedians of all time, Cosby has captivated generations of fans with his comedy routines, iconic albums and best-selling books such as "Fatherhood." His comedy transcends ages, genders and cultures. Cosby went around television's racial obstacles with "I Spy," becoming the first African American to costar on a weekly, dramatic television series while winning three consecutive Emmys(R). Cosby created and produced the Emmy Award(R)-winning cartoon series "Fat Albert and The Cosby Kids," which began airing in the 1970s and was made into a film in 2004. The show, based on Cosby's childhood in Philadelphia, was designed to educate and entertain. Perhaps Cosby's greatest contribution to American entertainment and culture is "The Cosby Show," about a close-knit, upper middle income Black family. Cosby has received the Kennedy Center Honors, the Presidential Medal of Freedom (America's highest civilian honor), the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor and the Marian Anderson Award.

COMEDY CENTRAL is the number one brand in comedy.
