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.

Good performance by George, but turned out to be a bunch of stand up show bits just strung together. A lot of poor placement and insulting at times. Sorry I paid 3 bucks for the listen. But glad it wasn't more.
while funny no doubt, this is simply a rehash of all of Carlin's stand-up jokes.
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.

The first run through of the audiobook was good and lively. The replay with slight additions- not so much- adding new material is fine but the entire replay was redundant and distracting, it took away from the overall experience.
Would your life make a good movie? Live a good story.
If you don't mind a bunch of cuss words, you have more of a likelihood of enjoying this book (or first paragraph) than I did.
