Description
In this hilarious collection of observations, Cosby brings us more of his wonderful and wacky insights into the human condition that are sure to become classics. In the tradition of Fat Albert, I DIDN'T ASK TO BE BORN offers a host of new characters, including Peanut Armhouse and Old Mother Harold. Not since Mushmouth, Dumb Donald, Bucky and the Cosby Kids has there been such a memorable cast. Over the past century few entertainers have achieved the legendary status of William H. Cosby Jr. His success spans five decades and virtually all media-remarkable accomplishments for a kid who emerged from humble beginnings in a Philly housing project. In the tradition of his bestselling books, Fatherhood and Cosbyology, the doctor of comedy holds forth on everything from first love to the Bible. Bill Cosby may not have asked to be born, but we're sure glad he was.

display_description The author, a well-known funnyman is back with his first humor book since the bestselling Cosbyology. In this new collection of observations, he brings us more of his wonderful and wacky insights into the human condition. In the tradition of Fat Albert, he introduces a host of new characters, including Peanut Armhouse and Old Mother Harold. Not since Mushmouth, Dumb Donald, Bucky and the Cosby Kids has there been such a memorable cast of misfits. Over the past century few entertainers have achieved the legendary status of William H. Cosby Jr. His success spans five decades and virtually all media, remarkable accomplishments for a kid who emerged from humble beginnings in a Philadelphia housing project. The doctor of comedy holds forth on everything from a game show contestant's confusing origins to a grandchild with a Godzilla infatuation, to his first love Bernadette, and many more delightful digressions.
