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.

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.
