Win Bill Cosby CDs

Five copies of Fat Albert up for grabs

Bill Cosby’s classic Fat Albert album is to be rerelased on CD later this month.

The album, recorded in Reno, Nevada, in 1973, includes a number of anecdotes about his teenage pal Fat Albert, as well as some family yarns.

The character of Fat Albert, which started in Cosby’s stand-up routine in 1964, was made into a Saturday-morning cartoon series in the States, which ran for 12 years from 1972.

This album, a typically relaxed style of suburban stories, is being re-released by Spectrum on March 21,

But we have five copies to give away to readers who can answer the following question by March 18.

Good luck.

Emma Sidi has taken great care to replicate the authentic feel of 1980s Spanish-language telenovelas in this spot-on parody, set in contemporary small-town England and which she describes as 'a bit Acorn Antiques, bit Garth Marenghi'.

At her mother's untimely funeral, Becky Hello (a typical British millennial as imagined by Mexican writers who have never been to the UK) discovers she has inherited a fortune. But it isn't long before nefarious family members begin to circle, and Becky must keep her wits about her if she is to avoid the same fate as her mother.
