Overview

Synopsis

George Carlin Again!
This video offers viewers comedian George Carlin at his best, before a live and appreciative audience. This tape is of a performance at a comedy club in Phoenix, AZ. Among other classic routines, Carlin performs "Newscast Number Two," "Death," and "Kids and Parents." Intended for adult audiences, parents will likely find that the language and content of this video make it inappropriate for young viewers. ~ Rob Ferrier, Rovi

Carlin on Campus
The college campus is the perfect venue for the witty humor of George Carlin. The free-wheeling atmosphere of the campus and the informed audiences are a good match for the topical satire that have made Carlin a perennial favorite at universities. This documentary culls the best from his live performances at colleges and universities throughout America. Carlin's irreverent wit is brought to bear on a variety of topics, from the Vietnam War to pornography. He also is shown performing some of his best-known routines, including the classic "Seven Words You Can't Say on Television" before appreciative campus audiences. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi

George Carlin: On Location with George Carlin
Appearances on network television in the 1960s led comedian George Carlin into a mire of bland comedy that bored him. But when he went "counterculture" and started uttering the famous "Seven Words," he not only triggered a landmark FCC lawsuit, he stopped getting asked to be a guest on TV. He even got axed from the roster of many clubs. Nevertheless, in the long run, speaking his true mind was the best thing that ever happened to Carlin. Returning to television in the 1970s on such ground-breaking shows as Saturday Night Live (he was the show's very first guest host), he hit his stride with the less restrictive cable television. Starring the iconoclastic, Grammy Award-winning comedian, this video features the first of Carlin's numerous and popular HBO stand-up concert specials. Recorded live at the University of Southern California on March 5, 1977, the routines presented here include, among others, Monopoly, Dogs & Cats, Names, Supermarkets, and Words. ~ Steve Blackburn, Rovi

Included in his irreverent repertoire are the classic "Seven Words You Can't Say on Television," "Baseball and Football," and "A Place for My Stuff." ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi
