In ten years Mike Birbiglia has grown from struggling comic to a popular talk show guest to a groundbreaking, origi- nal storyteller. The results? Two criti- cally-acclaimed COs, three Comedy Central Specials and a Nathan Lane- produced Off-Broadway show called "Sleepwalk with Me" that was recently nominated for both a Drama Desk Award and an Outer Circle Critics Award for "Best Solo Performance." One thing has remained constant: Birbiglia puts on one of the funniest, most unique live shows in comedy. Said Nathan Lane of Birbiglia, "Every once in a while, someone comes along who renews your faith in the art of stand-up comedy. It happened when I first saw Mitch Hedberg, and it hap- pened again when I saw Mike Birbiglia." BILL COSBY -- August 16. Over the past century, few entertainers have achieved the legendary status of William H. Cosby Jr. His successes span five decades and virtually all media, r.emarkable accomplishments for a kid who emerged from humble beginnings in a Philly project. In the 1960s, his stand-up act was a coast- to-coast sensation, spawning a string of hilarious, best-selling comedy albums, which went on to win eight Gold Records, five Platinum records and five Grammy Awards. His role on TV's I Spy made him the first African- American to co-star in a dramatic series, breaking television's racial barrier and winning three Emmy Awards. In the 1980s, he again rocked the television world with the The Cosby Show, a gentle, whimsical and hugely successful series that single- handedly revived the family sitcom (and rescued NBC). With hit movies like Uptown Saturday Night and best- selling books like Fatherhood, Bill Cosby is quite simply a national trea- sure with the unique ability to touch people's hearts.
