My Sides Hurt

Tip of the hat to The Center For The Arts.  They made a great decision when it came to grabbing Bill Cosby for a show!

This was my second Cosby performance.  First time I was 19, and thought I got what he was talking about.  Oh the hubris of youth!  This time, a few years older (like 36) I KNEW exactly what he was talking about!  I laughed until tears came more than once.  As a matter of fact, my sides hurt until Sunday afternoon.

I thought his salute to Nelson Mandella was touching.  His story of his meeting Mandella was both insightful and funny.

There was a story he told about how it’s really her house, which had both my wife & I in tears.  Once she gained control I was informed, “It’s not that funny.”  Then she laughed even harder.

Some of my earliest memories of humor are thanks to Bill Cosby, he still has it!
