    This is a favorite of mine. My little brother and I like to pop in our very worn-out VHS tape (recorded off of cable) once a year around the holidays and laugh our butts off.

    Am I dreaming to hope this performance is released on DVD someday?

    Very funny "stand-up" movie!

    I think it was mentioned in another thread that Cosby controlls the film, so it's up to what he wants to do.

    Heh. Great show; indeed a must-buy. [​IMG]
    I fondly remembered the "Johnny Bench" thing during my own son's birth! That, and every time I go to the dentist, I look for the string of rainbow spit from my mouth to the spit-sink. [​IMG]

    "Thibis ibis mybe botobom libip!!"

    "You just had...a lizard."

    "Will you stop touching me?!"

    I have this thing practically memorized, but it would be great to get it on DVD.

    Isn't this a Fox film? The Fox Movie Channel has been showing it recently.

    My favorites:

    "I'll beat you until you can't grow anymore"

    or:

    "Shut up! You keep quiet when I'm talking to you!

    You think I talk to hear myself talk?!?

    ANSWER ME!"


    This stuff is just perfection and I would love a simple clean transfer (no need for HD transfer or anything) and nice mono. Anybody agree with me?

    This is simply great, family-friendly, funny, stand-up material delivered by a comic genius. I'd love to have this on DVD.

    Cosby: Himself and Murphy: Delirious have to be the 2 most wanted stand-up DVDs around.

    Another quote:

    "For years I thought my name was Damnit or Jesus Christ"...

    Cosby's Father: "Damnit, will you get in here!"

    Cosby's Father: "Jesus Christ!"

    This is very funny stuff and clean. We need this on dvd!

    My first exposure to HBO/cable TV in the early 80's included this incredibly funny movie over and over.

    I used to have it memorized myself.

    "Oh toilet bowl, thanks for being cool on the side."

    This should be available on DVD!!!

    I'm right there with you. Been a Cosby fan since I was a kid. I'd love this on DVD.

    How come there no Sinbad stand up either on DVD?

    Peace,

    It was filmed in 1.37:1.
    Good news, though: [​IMG]
    Only extra is the theatrical trailer.

    Oh my goodness, I really can't believe this. I am soooo pumped.

    Now maybe Sinbad's "Bellbottoms and Afros" will be on its' way too.

    Peace,
