Bill Cosby: Himself is a 1983 stand-up comedy film featuring Bill Cosby. Filmed before a live audience at the Hamilton Place Theatre, in Hamilton, Ontario, Cosby gives the audience his views ranging from marriage to parenthood. The film also showcases Cosby's trademark conversational style of stand-up comedy. For most of the performance, Cosby is seated at the center of the stage, only getting up to emphasize a joke.
The film is regarded by many as "the greatest stand-up concert movie ever."
Nearly all of the movie concerns the trials and tribulations of raising children, frequently illustrated with anecdotes involving his own family. Occasionally he compares these with stories from his childhood. Other topics include grandparents, going to the dentist, and people who drink too much or take drugs.
