Audible Editor Reviews

Even after his death, comedian George Carlin remains one of the most well-loved and respected comedians of all time. While preparing for his 12th HBO special, he spoke with stand-up comic and Daytime Emmy Award-winning writer and producer of The Rosie O'Donnell Show Judy Gold about his life and career. Carlin displays his usual irreverent and sharp intelligence as he talks about hypocrisy and the power people inadvertently assign to words, explaining his famous "Seven Dirty Words" routine in detail. Carlin also reminisces about the start of his career and how his trouble with the IRS forced him to work harder on his shows and improve his writing.

    "Carlin Overcomes..."

    Terrific stuff from the much-missed Carlin. Erudite, funny and to the point. Don't miss this, despite the inadequacies of the interviewer.

    How do people pick these things? A comic interviewing another (much more accomplished) comic just does't work. Rote questions, no follow-ups to provocative answers, over-laughing...what I wouldn't give to have somebody like Brian Lamb from C-SPAN's excellent Q&A program have taken a crack at the great George.

    "Couldn't finish it"
    Any additional comments?

    For some reason I was expecting humor not autobiography. Maybe it was my mood but I simply couldn't finish this. Too boring.
