George Carlin asserted his comedy inevitably fell under one of three self-described categories: most notorious were the "peculiarities of English" - including his infamous "seven words" - and his "big world" routines, through which he roiled at politics and culture. Then there was the dry, observational humor of the "little world" - that of On the Road, which finds Carlin incisive and caustic, yet nevertheless laidback, even lecherous. Here, Curious George delivers longwinded, scathing screeds on whatever humdrum banalities strike his fancy: parenthood, dog ownership, and an exhaustive exposition on death - 15 minutes of ways to die, kill, mourn, and so on. Indeed, Carlin’s routine might be considered neurotic, if not for his incredibly casual disposition, a truly veritable vehicle for his masterfully subtle satire and penetrating parody.
