Crusty George Carlin performs his own book of random musings on contemporary life. That the print version has hit the bestseller lists warms the flinty hearts of us pessimists and skeptics who have feared the goody-goodies had gained the upper hand. As always, he is perceptive, iconoclastic, and very, very funny. His humor derives from a wry common sense and an absurt way of expressing the absurdity of the human condition. Lacking a live audience, the stand-up comic's timing and energy seem forced. Otherwise, this is a more than satisfactory production of one of the most satisfying books of humor to come along in a decade.
