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. It's a HighBridge library of laugh-out-loud, award-winning recordings featuring George himself performing many of his best bits. The set includes:
Acerbic observations, manic musings, in-your-face questions, witty word play, and more "droppings" from Carlin's singular brain. "I put a dollar in a change machine. Nothing changed." "Why are there no recreational drugs taken in suppository form?" The first Carlin book on audio and a 2001 Grammy winner.
Napalm & Silly Putty
Carlin invents Past-Tense TV (Got Smart, Father Knew Best, It Was Left to Beaver); crusades for the Center for Research into the Heebie Jeebies; founds the George Carlin Book Club (recommended reading: Fill Your Life with Croutons); and suggests that "If the shoe fits, get another just like it." A 2002 Grammy winner.
More Napalm & Silly Putty
Everything that wouldn't fit on the first Napalm recording - like "A Day in the Life of Henry VIII", "Sports Should Be Fixed", compelling confessions ("I couldn't commit suicide if my life depended on it"), and candid takes on life's little moments ("I'm beyond the nice day"), all delivered with wicked glee.

Looking for some humor to break up all the studying? Felt like he was sitting across the room. The piano is a nice touch. Gut-busting at parts. When you have earbuds in, It's funny to see people smile & laugh with you, when you laugh out loud in a quaint setting. They have no idea what you are listening to & laughing at, & you have no idea what they are thinking. Thank you George.
Very funny, of course if you are a big George Carlin fan you'll spot things in here from his standup comedy. There is however... plenty of new material. I miss George Carlin!
I tried to listen to this, but it just wasn't for me. I wanted to laugh, instead, his words came across with melancholy instead.
No. I would like to hear something that is actually funny though.
I love to make my mind think anew! For every book I read, my world grows. Maybe I need a bigger world, bigger then the one we have today?
He gives you a new way of seeing the world and our madness. He takes our brilliance and turns it around to show us the madness. Restores balanse and gives us back our humility.
