FROM THE BACK OF THE JACKET

Bill Cosby
Volume III of Hilarious Reminiscences

Why Is There Air?
And Othe Marvelous Things

He shouldn´t be funny, because he doesn´t tell jokes. But he is funny.

Bill Cosby has fingers like tentacles, talks faster that a scared mule, and has a heart bigger than dumbo, the Flying Pink Elephant. Mules and tentacles are fine.

But that heart, man, is the gas. That´s one of the qualities that makes Bill so Cosby. Makes him so warmly accepted.

You identify with Bill´s material. It´s not about rocket ships and mother-in-law worse than Lucretia Attila.
For instance Bill can do eight minutes on his first car - the same one you had, with no low gear, remember?

And when he talks about things we all have gone through, and then forgot, he just...talks. No big set ups. No knock-em-dead zingers. And when he takes up a situation, like Kindergarten, he doesn´t exaggerate. If anything, Bill underaggerates. No topical jibes. No White House gags. Just plain ole Mankind on Review.

In previous albums, Bill has recalled lots that we´ve all forgotten about life. Things like hustled-up street football games. ("Arnie, go down ten steps, and cut left behind the black Chevy"). Now a line like that isn´t exactly what most comedians would call boff. How big a laugh would Hope, or Benny, or Sahl get with that? About this big HEE-HO. How come?

He´s a guy with total recall. He remembers incidents none of us mortals do. He´s told more about his past life than Proust.

Is woodshop funny? What´s so hilarious about football? Or first grade?

For the answers, listen to this album, fans. It´s about the only way you´ll hear Bill for a while, anyway, Because right now (´65 - ´66) he´s temporarily out of circulation.

Bill´s in this little tiny, humid dressing room out in Hollywood, co-starring on the "I Spy" television series, and will be for a goodly spell.

There will be more to come, of course. Bill hasn´t yet told us The Truth about his nights tending bar, of Good Humor free sticks, or chemistry class, or his honeymoon.

That´s the Niceness Of The Week: Bill hasn´t even scratched the surface.
