One of the most admired entertainers in the United States, Bill Cosby sits down with Jim Breuer for a rare, in-depth conversation to discuss significant moments from his life and career, including insight into his creation of the beloved character Fat Albert, bigotry he witnessed as a child, and the importance of storytelling in comedy. Cosby also discusses some of the comedians he admires most such as Redd Foxx, Lenny Bruce, and Jonathan Winters.

"For me, as a comedian, talking with a legend like Bill Cosby was fascinating," said Breuer. "I feel like I touched a god of comedy, it was phenomenal."

Breuer, a stand-up comedian and Saturday Night Live alum, hosts a daily afternoon comedy show, Breuer Unleashed, every Monday through Friday from 4pm ET to 6pm ET on Raw Dog Comedy Uncensored. Breuer's show - where he hangs out with friends and talks to callers about the funny side of family, work, and life-has been heralded by the Village Voice as the "Best Reason to Get SIRIUS (Besides Stern)."

"SIRIUS pioneered uncensored comedy on the radio-putting no limits on comedians, our hosts, our guests, or their creativity-and we are happy to be a home for comedy geniuses such as Bill Cosby, who has been a leader in free speech throughout his storied career," said Scott Greenstein, President of Entertainment and Sports at SIRIUS. "Jim's show is Raw Dog's flagship, and it was a pleasure to hear a conversation between these two comedians."

The hour-long interview airs Thursday, March 15 @ 6pm ET on Raw Dog Comedy Uncensored, channel 104.

Bill Cosby is one of the United States' most popular and admired entertainers. A veteran stand-up performer with a number of successful albums, including Bill Cosby Is a Very Funny Fellow, Right! and To Russell, My Brother, Whom I Slept With, Cosby moved on to television shows such as I Spy, The Bill Cosby Show, and The Electric Company. He also created the humorous educational cartoon series Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids and, from 1984 to 1992, produced and starred in The Cosby Show, which is considered one of the defining cultural sitcoms of the decade.
