Comedian, author and television pioneer Bill Cosby will return to Bangor on Friday, Sept. 12 for his first ever performance at the Cross Insurance Center.

The star and co-creator of "The Cosby Show," Cosby became a staple in U.S. households for eight seasons as Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable. Of course, that was after captivating audiences with his stand-up shows and entertaining generations of children with his "Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids" cartoon series.

Cosby is a comedy icon, no doubt, and his stage performances are not to be missed.

Ticket prices start at $43.50, and go on-sale Friday, May 2 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased online at Ticketmaster.com, by calling 1-800-745-3000, or at the Cross Insurance Center Box office at 515 Main Street.

As a bonus, here is perhaps the best episode ever of the Cosby Show, "The Slumber Party," from the first season.
