"Carlin remains the most daring and impassioned comedian around." -Richard Zoglin, Time Magazine
Jammin' In New York
This award-winning, Emmy-nominated show represents a new, higher level of standup. With a sharper social focus and a sense of carefully controlled anger, Carlin ventures into an openly aggressive style of attack comedy that still retains his sense of wonder and vulnerability. The clown is still there, the innocent child has not been lost, but the voice of a sure-footed social critic, newly tuned and focused, has now emerged. The government, male sexuality, the military, golfers, yellow ribbons, the upper class, eating disorders, the news media, environmentalists and average Americans all come under Carlin's crosshairs with hilarious effects.
Doin' It Again
George Carlin takes the stage in New Jersey for this entertaining and enlightening concert, which won the 1990 Cable Ace Award for Best Standup Comedy Special. With his caustic humor and unabashed honesty, Carlin's routine centers on his usual themes of language, common experience and social criticism. With a slightly more political edge (and a politically incorrect edge) he dissects and skewers a wide variety of topics, including offensive language, cancer, feminism, organ donor programs, and words. As he himself states in the beginning of the show, you can joke about anything, and he does so better than anyone!
