Hi I'm Ethan and I like audiobooks.
George Carlin read this when he was older so his voice is better, I think. In fact, he read it at the perfect time - when he was old enough to develop a certain kind of comedic voice without getting too old like he was during his last HBO special.
Any of his stand-up material. In fact, too often he repeats the exact same things from his stand-up material. There is new material, but half of the time the new material is one-liners. There's no real transitions besides a piano roll at the end of each chapter, and what's even worse, is that the chapters aren't even very coherent themselves sometimes.
Much of this is exactly the same as his stand-up material. I have seen all his stand-up stuff as well as seen interviews with him, so not much is different than what I already know. There are a few major differences, however, between this and his stand-up comedy. For instance, there is no audience, he doesn't have the exact same passion as he does in his stand-up (although it is close), and as stated before, there are piano rolls at the beginning of each new chapter.
"Listen to George Carlin's jokes for over seven hours!"
If you like his stand-up material, you'll like this. This is a bargain of a price for over seven hours worth of jokes. However, if you've already seen all his stand-up, you probably won't need this. But for this is a must for any die-hard Carlin fan (as myself), and anyone looking for a good quote.
I was expecting 5 minute clips from a dozen big names that came out of the comedy store that would be worth the asking price. About half the program is describing what it was like to work for the comedy store. The rest mostly not the really big names or not doing their best stuff. It is like a cut rate documentary that could not afford to license good historic footage.
