From 1960, this is the first ever recording of George Carlin, joined here by his former comedic partner Jack Burns. For fans who are only familiar with Carlin's legendary stand-up, this will be a revelatory listen, as Carlin and Burns team up for a set of parodic and gently humorous sketches where they play several characters, such as a group of mothers, a boxer, and Beat-style poets. Killer Carlin proves a must-listen for casual fans and completists, showing Carlin in those early days before he turned into one of the greatest stand-up comics who has ever lived.

I will listen to NO boring book. Old Fav's,Card, King , Hobb. New Fav's, Hill, Scalzi, Sawyer, Interested in Lansdale, Crouch, Konrath
Preformed in 1960, Carlin may have been ahead of his time with all the drug jokes, I don't know I was only two. There was a bit on beat niks. Even though there was no cussing I found this to be very crude. I did not find this to be intelligent like Carson's later stuff and never did I laugh.
I am a huge George Carlin fan, but this is not good.
