This is the classic Bill Cosby grandparents stand up bit that has made generations of comedy fans laugh until they cry. Bill talks about how his parents have changed from the time when he was a child to now, when they are grandparents. If he asked his dad for a nickel, he had to hear his life story and he ate dirt. He had to hear about how his dad used to walk to school each morning uphill both ways in the snow. And he was thankful. But now, when his parents comes to visit their grandchildren they hand out money to the kids as much as he can. The Bill Cosby grandparents bit has the classic line that these people aren't the same people he grew up with. These are old people who are trying to get into heaven now.
Bill Cosby is one of the most hallowed comedians and actors in the history of comedy. He is a giant when it comes to not only stand up, but TV sitcoms as well. He has been active for over five decades in some form of entertainment. Any comedian who is known at all has Bill Cosby as an influence. Even though he has worked clean (he rarely swears, as you can see in this classic stand up clip), everyone from Eddie Murphy to Louis CK to Jerry Seinfeld have mentioned Bill Cosby as someone who helped shape their stand up or helped get them into doing stand up comedy and becoming a comedian. Bill is one of the greatest of all time without question. He has taken real life experiences and put them into hilariously classic stand up bits. Anyone between the ages of 30 and 60 probably grew up listening to his comedy records.
