Generations of Americans grew up with Bill Cosby as the wise-cracking, eye-rolling but tender dad during "The Cosby Show's" eight-year run and years of repeats. Cosby had a rich and varied career before he became known as "America's Dad." His performances at San Francisco's legendary nightclub, hungry i, in the early '60s helped launch his standup career before he got his big break in 1965 playing an undercover agent in the TV series, "I Spy." Now he's 77 years old and still doing standup with his current tour, "Far from Finished." We talk to Cosby about his career as a comic, his new family comedy slated for 2015 and his thoughts on race and culture today.
