      "Entry-Level Carlin"

      More of a "greatest hits" collection than anything new or original, "Napalm and Silly Putty" includes material dating all the way back to Carlin's legendary Carnegie Hall performance in 1981. This is not necessarily a bad thing, though. Considering that I was about ten years old when that concert footage aired on HBO, and yet I can STILL remember the jokes practically verbatim is a testament either to their brilliance or to the impressionableness of my mind back then. Either way, for Carlin fans, listening to this audiobook will be like slipping on a pair of warm, familiar gloves; for others it will be a good way for them to get acquainted with Carlin humor from the eighties all the way to the present. Those who are new to the crafter of The-Seven-Dirty-Words-You-Can't-Say-on-TV will encounter a comedian who loves analyzing social conventions almost as much as he does the English language, which he analyzes endlessly. The book is set up as a series of unrelated excerpts, delineated by quirky scraps of Seinfeldesque musical bumpers (which -- truthfully -- are kind of annoying). And there is no laugh track or audience reaction accompanying the material. What you get is George Carlin at your disposal for two hours or so, telling you jokes. Even if you have heard them before, it's worth another listen, multiple listens in fact.

      "That's Carlin"

      Half the time I was thoroughly entertained and the other half I was trying to decide if I was truly offended. Hey, That's George Carlin!

      "Stupid, Insulting, and Ignorant"

      Ok, we all know this guy is a character but c'mon! I like comedy and I can handle a little vulgarity and stupidy. But the problem I have is when people who are good at what they do decide that they are also philosophers and political know-it-alls. He has about as much right trying to discuss politics as Ellen Degenerate does being a priest. So, if you can handle absolutely no respect for God, (or any kind of religion) hate America and are a wacko liberal then you might like this guy.
