It's definitely not one of his best. The first part of the show(People I could do without) wasn't very funny all, but the worst part about that was his 'list' took up way too much time of the show. Made me wonder if he was going to move on to the funnier part, just kept waiting. The rest of the show was pretty good, but, could have been better. It will be a while before I watch it again,and I love his stuff, always have. I just expected more.
Maybe I'm spoiled by his later stuff, but this one just didn't seem like it was worth the money. For the first 20 minutes after he got on stage he just seemed to bomb, and bad. I actually felt bad for the guy. It got better after that, but not by much. When the show ended I was thinking "what, that's IT?". Quite a let-down for me.
I like George Carlin's comedy videos and everything but Amazon DOES NOT ALLOW YOU TO DOWNLOAD THEM after you purchase!!!! DO NOT BUY ANY DIGITAL MOVIES FROM AMAZON!!!! YOU CAN WATCH THIS MOVIE ON OTHER DIGITAL MOVIE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES!!!!!
George Carlin is hands down my favorite comedian. This and "You Are All Diseased" are my top two fav performances that Carlin has done. I could sit and watch this over and over...never gets old! I still can't believe he is gone. :( R.I.P. George Carlin!
As long as this disc was not scratched, I knew this would be a 5 star rating. George Carlin is classic on this disc and I'm so happy to have it in my possession. Shipped quickly and was a value for his timeless comedy!
