Just watched it, and it was freakin' amazing. One of my favorite Carlin HBO specials of all time, his rant on "Child Obsession" is gold. A must-see for any fan of comedy. Carlin at 70 is better than any comedian in the world in his prime. Like I said, just do yourself a favor and watch the goddamn special, and laugh your ass off, like I did.
It was way better than his last special. His last show was ok, but no grreat. This one was funny from start to finish. I caught it by accident flipping through the channels. I had no idea it was on and just happened to flip over to HBO just before it started.
I loved it. He had me rolling for almost the whole time, and when he didnt he mad making really good statements about society and shit. He is the best there is, hands down, thats it. Carlin is the man.
Yeah I agree. His last show was godawful for a george carlin show, but still better than a lot of the crap out there. The new one wasn't up to the standards he set throughout the 90's, but it was still one of the best I've seen in recent years and probably in the top 50 of all time.
Best line was "You remember my neighbor with the burns on 90% of her body? Well she burned the other 10% now. She was lighting a fart and her bush caught fire".
maybe I wasn't that much into it but I didn't find it all too funny. But I was at work and doing other shit. I loved his earlier work and happened upon it accidentally but it seemed to let me down some
