One star of NBC’s Thursday night television tradition will salute another with the nation’s top humor prize during a ceremony next month in Washington.
Jerry Seinfeld, who starred in the iconic series “Seinfeld” on Thursday nights, will honor Bill Cosby of “The Cosby Show” on Oct. 26 with the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, reports the Associated Press.
“The Cosby Show” originated the Peacock’s tradition of airing its highest-rated sitcoms in a two-hour block on Thursday nights.
Seinfeld will be joined by Chris Rock, “Cosby” co-stars Phylicia Rashad and Malcolm-Jamal Warner and others for the presentation, which will be broadcast nationally Nov. 4 on PBS.
When it comes to fellow R&B singers and others coming at his title “The R in R&B” and perhaps the ‘King of R&B,’ R. Kelly says he’s like Ali.
“It’s like Ali: When you get to a certain status, you never have to throw a punch,” Kelly said at a special listening party for his forthcoming album “Untitled”.
Kelly’s statement follows a controversial diss/mixtape track released by Grammy-nominated singer Trey Songz.
On the song, the “Successful” singer went as far as singing “He’s a legend but I’m fresher”…. “Trey songz coming where Kelly… who”.
In related news, R. Kelly’s “Untitled” listening party went off without a hitch at his Illinois estate Monday.
Sources in attendance say the “Number One” singer celebrated with friends and industry tastemakers while also shedding light on his future.
“May the best of past, be the worst of our future,” Kelly shared.
“By the grace of God, I’m still here doing it big,” he added. “I’m trying to get back on top of that mountain and roar like the Lion King.”
