Humor • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

From the dedication on, subtle jokes flow in an endless stream. George Carlin's voice is as lively in these recordings as it is in his live performances; he shifts speed, accent, tone, rhythm, and apparent intelligence level to match the barrage of humor. He's strongest when working a connected string of absurd ideas. Carlin's rants move through familiar topics (human stupidity, religion, language quirks, and more) to riffs on contemporary trends in politics, technology, and business. The one weakness in this book is its length. Six discs is far longer than the stand-up performances in which Carlin developed his edge, and, as a result, the material sags repeatedly.
