Fat Albert (1973) is the 15th comedy album by Bill Cosby.

After six years of recalling memories of his childhood friend "Fat Albert" Robertson in his stand-up routines, this would be the final album in which Fat Albert is mentioned.

Two tracks on the album were previously released (and edited differently) on When I Was a Kid: "Fat Albert Got a Hernia" (as "My Hernia") and "My Brother, Russell."

Unlike some of his other albums, the album had more kid-friendly humor on it.
