Editorial Reviews

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.

Publisher's Summary

It's funny! It's clean! And it's quite possibly George Carlin's earliest recording. A must for die-hard fans.

Beatniks and Drugs

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.
