  • 5.0 (9)
Bill Cosby, one of the most popular and influential standup comics in history, takes center stage in the concert film Bill Cosby, Himself. Featuring routines about parenthood, childhood, and dentists, the film debuts on DVD sporting both a widescreen transfer that preserves the original aspect ratio and a full-screen version for those who wish to relive their experiences of watching the film on cable. English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital Stereo and Dolby Digital Mono. The only extra is the film's original trailer, but this gem of a performance makes the DVD well worth viewing.

Bill Cosby, Himself
Some critics carped that the star of Bill Cosby, Himself delivered his nearly two-hour monologue while sitting down. "Look how lazy Cos has gotten!" went the complaint. Well, we can tell you that Cosby exudes more energy and charisma from a seated position than most younger comics do while jumping around the room. As an appreciative audience roars with laughter, Cosby holds court on any number of subjects, ranging from childbirth, to his views on substance abuse. Bill Cosby, Himself isn't really a movie, but fans of Cosby (both casual and fervent) will be thoroughly satisfied. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
