"The answer to why there is air is "to blow up basketballs with". At least,
in Bill's opinion, that is."

I thought it was volleyballs. Seems like Cosby was holding a volleyball on
the album cover, but yes, that is one fine comedy album.

I still have it, and wonderful it is, too. The answer to why there is air
is "to blow up basketballs with". At least, in Bill's opinion, that is.

I remember having this LP called "why is there air" or some such title. It
had him on the cover holding a volleyball.

Our resident Noah expert here says, "I've never seen a video version,
but I have heard an audio recording of the sketch. I don't remember if
the original was on LP or cassette. I have a hunch that if the Cosby
Noah segment ever was on video someone would have told me because over
the years I've gotten a lot of "tips" about commercials and other visual
media with Noah content."

I definitely came out on LP around 1967 or so because we had the record and
it was my favorite part. ("Lord...what's a cubit?") However, I do know he
did the routine on several television variety shows (Ed Sullivan?) at that
time and so who knows, it should be out there somewhere though maybe not
officially.
