Artist: Cosby, Bill
Description:
Personnel: Bill Cosby (vocals). Audio Mixer: Phil Kaye. Recording information: Hamilton Place, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. The soundtrack CD to a 1982 concert film, HIMSELF was something of a comeback for Bill Cosby. For one thing, it was a late-night cable viewing of this movie that gave NBC's Brandon Tartikoff the idea for THE COSBY SHOW. More importantly, with HIMSELF Bill Cosby redefines his entire comedic persona. In the '60s, Cosby's stand-up comedy, as later reflected in his '70s Saturday morning TV show FAT ALBERT AND THE COSBY KIDS, was rooted almost entirely in stories about his childhood in Philadelphia. The comedy on HIMSELF is almost entirely about Cosby's experiences as a father, and the new focus gives the comedian a wealth of new areas to explore, from childbirth to parenthood. While it's odd to hear Cosby talk about drug use in one routine--and, just as incongruously, use obscenities in it--HIMSELF is remarkably funny stuff.
