Humour - Released January 1, 1992 | Motown

This is by no means an essential collection of Bill Cosby's finest moments, instead assembling selected Cosby standup routines from the '80s and '90s from various records originally released on Universal. The main problem with compiling extracts from multiple Cosby standup records lies in the fact that his delivery and sequencing of material are quite smooth in any of this individual releases, so the transition from track to track on this compilation disc can be comparatively jarring at some points, especially with the William Shatner-esque "Grover Henson Feels Forgotten." While this disc certainly has its moments, those looking for a more definitive look at Cosby's comedic genius would be well served in checking out 1969's classic The Best of Bill Cosby. © Rob Theakston /TiVo

The early '70s saw comedian Bill Cosby branch out into the educational aspects of television. In 1969, he first starred as an original cast member of the Children's Television Workshop PBS series Electric Company -- which also boasted the innumerable talents of Rita Moreno and Morgan Freeman. Then Cosby developed his own Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids animated series, airing Saturday mornings on CBS affiliates from September of 1972 to August of 1984. The show was based upon the adventures of the Fat Albert character first introduced on Cosby's '60s standup albums -- most notably his 1967 release, Revenge. With the overwhelming response and acceptance garnered -- from both young and old fans -- Cosby returned to the standup nightclub stage of Harrah's in Reno, NV, to document more fables and tales. While a majority of Fat Albert centers around the exploits of Albert and the gang, the disc also includes two pieces, "My Wife and Kids" and "Fernet Branaca," dedicated to his adult life as father and husband. There is an inherent beauty in the obvious affection that Cosby relates in these yarns. Without a doubt this is why children of all ages and ethnic backgrounds are so enamored with not only the characters, but also the hilarious situations they constantly find themselves in. Several of these stories have since become cornerstones in Cosby's repertoire of observational humor. Among these are "Fat Albert's Car," "Fat Albert Plays Dead," and "My Brother Russell." These reach back and bookend the decade of stories begun on I Started out As a Child (1964) and ending on this volume. Despite the obvious endearment of these recordings, Cosby would not revisit Fat Albert as subject matter of his future comedy albums, choosing to seek a more mature audience with monologues dealing with parenthood and married life. © Lindsay Planer /TiVo
