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.

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.

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.
