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.

This is probably my own issue but the little I knew of George Carlin was a clean skit about sports. This
The language and foulness
Not after this sadly.
1 funny skit about sports
I would recommend, but not for stand-up comedy fans
The book includes George Carlins stand-up comedy acts read out loud. As a huge fan I had already heard everything in this book and it offered no new material
Even if you have heard this bit before........there is something to be said about having them at your listening disposal. This is the book to download when you are having a bad day.
Why waste your time and money listening to such a conceded fowl mouth.
A better point of view on life would help

This is basically a written, then read, form of Carlin's classic stand up routines.
true crime fan
This seems to be a compilation of many of George Carlin's bits over the years. Some of them I recall and made me remember how funny George Carlin is; however, in some parts he sounded like an angry old man ranting and raving about how things should be the same as when he was young. I can get that from my dad any day of the week. Overall, I enjoyed it but was bored after a while with the complaints.
