Cosby To Receive Special Honor During American Comedy Awards On NBC

(NBC) In the world of stand-up comedy almost everyone who followed Bill Cosby owes a debt to Bill Cosby.

He'll receive a special honor, the Johnny Carson Award for Comedic Excellence, tonight during the American Comedy Awards on NBC.

"What I love about what I do is that it does show up, the response from the audience to me," Cosby says.

It's a response earned through Cosby's iconic TV series, numerous hit movies and a legendary career ignited when he first appeared on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in the 1960s.

Now 76-years-old, Cosby has nearly three dozen concerts in the months ahead.
