William Henry "Bill" Cosby, Jr. (born July 12, 1937) is an American comedian, actor, author, television producer, musician and activist.
A veteran stand-up performer, Cosby in 1965 landed a starring role in the action series I Spy, becoming one of the first African-American performers to star as a main character in a scripted comedy or drama. He is also well known for creating Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids, a widely hailed animated series depicting a group of African-American teens growing up in a Philadelphia ghetto; and The Cosby Show, a 1980s situation comedy about an affluent African-American family living in Brooklyn.
He has also served as an advocate for African American youth and education, and is involved in many humanitarian causes.
Cosby appears in interject commentary regarding Cleveland's situation with his mother and father in the style of Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids in "The Way the Cookie Crumbles".
Cleveland imitates Bill Cosby twice in "Your Show of Shows", once pitching Jello pudding and again as his character of Fat Albert, although he claims to be Rosie O'Donnell.
While pretending to be a Muslim woman, Cleveland is forced to dance like Bill Cosby in The Cosby Show by a rich sheik in "Yemen Party".
Bill is voiced by Fred Tatasciore
