    I have noticed that a large amount of George Carlin [​IMG] material has been released this week including a 5 disc box set. This got me thinking about other comedians. Does anybody know when and if any of the Bill Cosby material will be released on DVD ? I would love to own "Bill Cosby, Himself" on DVD [​IMG]

    Gordon,
    I'm w/ you. This is a classic and I want it on DVD too, but the recent HTF chat w/ Fox's Peter Staddon didn't bring very good news about it.

    That is too bad about Bill Cosby on DVD.
    I would love to have "Himself" to put into my player.
    What a funny, funny man!

    I'll second that. Bill Cosby's on-stage comedy material is outstanding and really deserves a treatment on DVD.

    Thanks for the info from the Fox chat. I am really sorry to hear that no work is being done to release the Cosby material. This is one of the best pieces of comedy I have seen.

    I watched Bill Cosby: Himself this last weekend. Very funny.

    While I am glad my TiVo captured it, I would rather have this film on DVD. Any news for this year?

    "I said, 'Isn't that the head?'"

    He said, 'Yeah.'

    'I said, 'Well, go get it!'

    He says, 'It's stuck!'

    I said, 'Well, get the salad spoons, man!'"

    I have this on VHS, too, and even though I practically have the thing memorized, I'd love to have it on DVD, as well.

    I love this too, and would love to own it. The first time I saw it, I was surprised when he said asshole, because I never thought of Bill Cosby as one who used profanity at all in his acts. He definitely doesn't need to use it to be funny, because he's funny without it.

    Count me in also as one who would jump in on the DVD ... I remember the original HBO broadcast of Bill Cosby-Himself years ago and thought it was (and still IS) the funniest thing to hit TV.

    It is very, very funny.

    Cosby: (paraphrasing)..."for years I thought my name was Jesus Christ or Damn it as this is what my dad always said to us....DAMN-IT, WILL YOU GET IN HERE! JESUS CHRIST!"...
