Audience Reviews for George Carlin - Jammin' in New York
Brilliant live concert in NY city. Fast talking and thinking Carlin is non-stop talking for an hour in this look at ourselves and others.
There are two different versions of this show available. The original VHS release was filmed on a different [and better] night than the show released on DVD.
Reviews from the little folk, like us:
Carlin is great in this and it is exactly what one would expect from him. The sense that this man spoke in each skit exceeds most and remains humorous.
5 stars is not enough
To see the entire VHS 58 minute show:
1 The album won a Grammy Award in 1993 for Best Spoken Comedy Album.
Before the opening credits, the words "This show is for SAM" appear. This is a reference to comedian Sam Kinison, who died in a car crash two weeks earlier.
3 Carlin considered Jammin' in New York his favorite HBO special.

1."Rockets and Penises in the Persian Gulf" - 7:35
2."Little Things We Share" - 7:47
3."Airline Announcements" - 16:44
4."Golf Courses for the Homeless" - 11:13
5."The Planet Is Fine" - 13:37
Carlin's political bent is a real turn off at the beginning of the show. It was an interesting interpretation, but it was lacking for me.
He began hitting stride with the airline bits. Quite funny.
