Title: IS A VERY FUNNY FELLOW RIGHT?
Street Release Date: 01/24/1995
"I used to have ALL of Bill Cosby's recordings on LP when I was a kid, including this one. My brothers and I listened to them over and over again, and we would laugh ourselves silly each time. Our mother could never understand how we could listen to the same routines over and over and over again and still find them funny, but we DID! We listened to them so many times, we had them all memorized, and we never got tired of them.I don't know what happened to my old albums - I think my Dad got rid of them - but I sure am glad to see this recording here! I listened to some of the snippets and laughed myself senseless all over again. Bill Cosby's humor never gets old."
What's a cubit?

"This was Bill Cosby's very first album. It sold over a million copies, and the rest is history. Most of this material holds up well today, but the bits about athletes doing razor blade and hair tonic commercials are a bit dated. The absolute classic routines are the ones about Noah. This is a very funny album. Recommended to fans of classic comedy. Right!"
Hilarity for any generation.

"The thing I appreciate the most about Bill Cosby is that he appeals to so many types of people. He can be hilarious to a person of any age, which is very rare nowadays. Part of the reason is that he's always been a clean comic; no turning the air blue like so many others do. I am in my 20's and I think he is great! I bought this album about a year ago, but I'd heard many of the skits when I was six or so because my mother had them and I thought he was hilarious then! As you get older, you realize that there are some jokes that only someone older would get, but everything is done tastefully.This album features Bill's very famous Noah and the Lord routine, which I've loved since the first time I heard it. "Superman" is one of those jokes that has a tinge of adult humor to it and it is great! "Hoof and Mouth" is a short, clever little skit that makes it seem that cows aren't as dumb as they look. "Karate" is my personal favorite on this one. It just gets funnier and funnier as it goes on.Every routine is a classic as is this album, Bill's first. What an awesome way to start! If you like funny jokes that don't require offending the listener, than this is for you. HIGHLY recommended!"
Cosby Circa 1963 As Funny As Now

"Bill Cosby's gifted comedically in ways the average sitcom actor dreams of, and has created a level of standup few compete with. He is a master artist, and no mere funnyman. "Bill Cosby Is A Very Funny Fellow... Right!" is one of his best efforts.
Having found "Himself" to be hilarious, I expected more of the same. It is isn't. Instead of stories about his childhood, or his family's adventures at home, he gives us a story about Noah and God talking over how the ark should be built, how his coach would inspire the team, the trouble Superman might run into while changing in the tollbooth, and two cows discussing the dilemma of having hoof and mouth disease. Then there's his story about riding the subways, finding a nut in every car, and the advantages of knowing karate.
As always, Cosby makes the mundane incredibly funny.
The drawback of the CD is there's no video. While Cosby isn't as physical of a comic as some, he still uses the stage, mike and chair as props. A DVD version of this must be great.
I fully recommend "Bill Cosby Is A Very Funny Fellow... Right!" It is Bill Cosby at his best, but he's always at his best.

"Bill's Noah is a classic. Nut in Every Car is a wonderful bit about his experiences in a NY subway car. It's probably a better description than John Rocker's ignorant ravings about NY subways. It's a must for every Cosby fan."
