    If one George Carlin audio is funny, then two are funnier and three must be funniest, right? That's our thinking behind this new collection. t's a HighBridge library of laugh-out-loud, award-winning recordings featuring George himself performing many of his best bits.

    Rick says: "Like a Cast of Thousands"
    "George swaps wit and humor for crude cheap laughs."

    What would have made George Carlin Reads to You better?

    I became board and offended by this (formally) intelligent man continually reverting to crude and intentionally offensive language to support his continually weaker and weaker propositions.


    What was most disappointing about George Carlin’s story?

    George seems to be bent on being offensive to all peoples, groups, and listeners, by condemning and offending those who have other opinions or may hold to moral principles. Come on George, you can do better than this. You’re not in the fourth grade anymore, and the world does not revolve around you. If people took to heart some of the espoused philosophies you promote in this book the world would spiral into selfishness, hate, and cruelty. That just doesn’t seem that funny these days.


    What didn’t you like about George Carlin’s performance?

    The ratio of swearing to humor. Swearing more and more often does not make things funny, it just shows that you can not, or are not interested in putting forth the effort, in developing your ideas above reverting to shock value. Has the author/performer run out of intelligent humor, or forgotten how, in the past, his showing compassion, moral character and wisdom made people listen to, respect, and enjoy hearing/reading his works? It's sad, and a loss.
