(Bill Cosby, US 1983, 105 min., 35mm)

Holidays. In his distinct conversational style, Bill Cosby brings a Hamilton, Ontario, audience to hysterics as he discusses a range of topics, including weekends, drugs, dentists, and of course, the peculiar activities of his family. A precursor to The Cosby Show, Bill Cosby: Himself is close to the real thing, as his insightful brand of stand-up comedy is presented with a candor that can usually be attained only through a live performance.
