What Kind of Fool Am I and Other Show-Stoppers is a 1962 studio album by Sammy Davis, Jr.
Riding off the success of the title single which was at #18 on the Billboard Hot 100 after 8 weeks on the chart, the album entered the Billboard Top LPs chart at #82 in the end of October 1962. It peaked at #14, staying on the chart for 22 weeks, the last of which was the week Davis' 1963 live album Sammy Davis Jr. at the Cocoanut Grove entered the Top LPs chart.
