Sometimes we use humor to make a point so that it’s a memorable lesson.  There’s a comedian I’ve admired for many years whose comedy is like that.  He teaches us lessons about life.  The incomparable Mr. Bill Cosby is an incredible talent.  Here he is in an early episode of The Cosby Show teaching his son a lesson in economics:

I found a YouTube video of him hosting You Bet Your Life where a woman with a thick Southern accent talked about where she’s from.  She explained this confusing set of circumstances in a way that made it a bit MORE confusing.  As is Bill Cosby’s style, he just let her go and even encouraged the confusion.  It was hilarious, but the video is very long.  The funniest part is at the beginning where she explains where North, South Carolina is.  If you don’t have time to listen to the entire clip, just listen to the first three minutes!

  1. I’ve seen the second clip before and it’s great! I think I saw the first show when it aired originally, but I’d forgotten about it. He makes a good point! Bill Cosby has always been a favorite of mine as he’s a home boy. LOLOL He’s from not too far from my old neighborhood in Philly. He is one of the greatest humorists there is because he knows it works. You know it works, too, Say What You Mean Queen! :)

  2. BIll Cosby is such fun. I always enjoy seeing him. I have an old VHS of Bill Cosby Himself in which he uses only his communication talent and his adorable facial expressions to convey his comic genius.

  3. I’ve seen both of these and I LOVE them! Especially the southern accent one – so FUNNY!!

  4. That’s my favorite too, Cindy!
