Product Description

Jammin' is a perfect blend of biting social commentary and more gently-observed observational pieces. It's George Carlin's first live stand-up special for HBO, performed at the Paramount Theater in Madison Square Garden.

Format: VHS Tape
By '93 - Carlin is much more openly angry in his rhetoric. Losing his overt liberal overtones from 70's and 80's. Skits included here are Desert Storm commentary, and a biting attack on White Liberal environmentalism.
But his creativity is clearly on display here in a way that had been lacking before. Like many comedians, Carlin is best when he has some large issue in the public eye to discusss.
Skewers darlings of the left and the right.But there is also a middle skit about small everyday occurences that bring people together. This adjoining routing tempers and balances the overt anger of the other two main skits, making the flow much more even and natural.
Similar to his famous Driving skit (Carlin on Campus, What Am I Doing in new Jersey) Carlin here includes a wonderful skit on airplanes and airports that has gotten me through many an awful flight.

If you want to laugh in hysterics and relate to ordinary every day life, you will want to watch this video. Carlin does it again, as he describes words and phrases in relation to air travel and more. He is one of the best comedians of over two decades and after seeing Jammin' In New York (1992) for the first time, I do not at all regret this purchase. This one should be in any Carlin fan's, albeit, comedy-lover's video collection. Enjoy!

This video is a perfect example as to why George Carling is known as such a great comedian. His opinions reflect your opinions you're yo scared to share. His acts are funny, as well as very intelligent. Every word he says we can relate to. When he performs, you know he is passionate in it. I'd reccomend this to evryone.

I have been searching for another Carlin video that is on the same level as this one, but I have yet to find it. I think that this is one of his greatest performances, he seems to be having fun on stage, and he just lets loose with his sarcasm and wit. I don't think anyone can be disappointed with this one.

George Carlin outdid himself with this one. No matter how many times I watch it or listen to it on audio tape (recorded from tv) I laugh hysterically. His part about the airports and other 'universal similarities' will ring a bell for everyone!
