Young and Foolish is the second comedy album released by Northern Irish comedian and actor James Young.

The album cover features a picture taken by Stanley Matchett. In the picture Young and his business partner Jack Hudson are standing on the back of an Ulster Transport Authority bus. Each man has a speech bubble coming from his mouth. Husdon's states "James Young in" with Young's replying "Young and Foolish". The back cover features a poem and sleeve notes written by John Knipe.
