Growing up in New York City, George Carlin was always the class clown. He went on to become one of the great comedians of our time, with appeal that has spanned generations. His brand of provocative sociopolitical commentary and his scathing comic style have brought him four Grammy awards, most recently in 2002. He was the first-ever host of NBC's Saturday Night Live, and has starred in twelve of his own HBO specials. He continues to perform to sold-out audiences at venues across the country.
Back in Town, aired as a live broadcast from New York City's Beacon Theater. Features Carlin's trademark acerbic observations on topics such as abortion, capital punishment and bodily functions. His classic routines, "Sanctity of Life," "State Prison Farms" and "Free-Floating Hostility" are included in this hysterical stand-up comedy performance.
