Legendary entertainer to perform in Murray

Fans of the iconic Bill Cosby have a chance to see him once again when his tour, “Far From Finished,” will make a stop at Murray State for Homecoming.

“I had called his agent several years ago trying to see if we could get his schedule to coordinate with our Homecoming schedule,” said Shelley Todd, director of the CFSB Center. “We were excited to learn about nine months ago that our offer had been accepted and Mr. Cosby would be available Oct. 11.”

Cosby was the University’s first choice for a Homecoming show and have tried to book his tour for several years with Cosby’s booking agent.

However, ticket prices may be a factor in some students’ decision to see the actor in person. Ticket prices for the event range from $27 to almost $95 depending on the seat, however. The show is open to the public.

Cosby’s role on “The Cosby Show” as well as other jobs in stand-up comedy, television production and music have made him the public figure he is today.

Said Brenden Breen, junior from Murray: “When I was a kid I would always watch ‘The Cosby Show’ and I always enjoyed it, so it would be great to see him in person.”
