Editor reviews

George Carlin's Grammy Award-winning Jammin' in New York, recorded over two days in 1992 at the Paramount Theater in New York, offers a hilarious snapshot of this crassly funny comic's sharp humor. Carlin's raspy-voiced delivery makes him seem the grouchy everyman, and his observations on America's warlike ways, the divisions amongst the various classes, and airport lingo all hit home. Though some of the current events, such as the Gulf War, may no longer be topical, many of the themes remain eerily relevant today, making it obvious why Carlin's humor is the stuff of legend.

Summary

Here's George Carlin's eighth HBO special, taped on April 24 and 25, 1992, at the Paramount Theater, on the grounds of Madison Square Garden in New York City. Topics include the recently ended Persian Gulf War, similarities and differences among average Americans, language used at airports, and more.

Tracks:
1. Rockets And Penises In The Persian Gulf
2. Little Things We Share
3. Airline Announcements
4. Golf Courses for The Homeless
5. The Planet Is Fine (The People Are F****d)

Nothing new here.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Not sure

What was most disappointing about George Carlin’s story?

This was not cleaver or funny. Mostly loud and overwrought.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No. It was old material served up again and again.
