I Started Out as a Child is Bill Cosby's second album, released in 1964. It is the first Cosby album that features his childhood memories in his comic routines, but many of the tracks are still observational humor.

Recorded live at Mister Kelly's in Chicago, Illinois, the album won the Grammy Award in 1965 for Best Comedy Album. It was added to the National Recording Registry in 2009.
