Class Clown | [George Carlin]

Class Clown

Comedian George Carlin's definitive monologue was delivered on this 1972 album, his third, in the form of Seven Dirty Words You Can Never Say on Television. The FCC and Supreme Court held the routine as the epitome of tastelessness, threatening to yank the license of any station that dare play it over public airwaves. So you know it has to be funny. Buy it today and shock your parents!

Audible Editor Reviews

Few comedians have achieved such wide critical acclaim, or made such an irrevocable mark on the culture they relentlessly mocked, as the infamous and sadly now-departed George Carlin, whose biting satirical stand-up has been a staple on major cable network HBO since the late 1970s.

Carlin’s totally matter-of-fact demeanor ramps up the electrifying humor of his unbearably sharp observations, and Class Clown, his third live comedy album, contains some of his most well-known monologues, which are, yes, perhaps vulgar, but in the way only Carlin can manage to be: vulgar with a kind of absurd and thoroughly entertaining social purpose. For comedy fans, this classic album is absolutely not to be missed!

    "Top 5 comedy album of all time"

    This is George Carlin at the top of his game, and he was one of the very best. Along with Pryor, Cosby and Lenny Bruce before them, Carlin influenced everyone that followed. This is my favorite of his many albums.
