(2004)(audio)Very funny collection of short Carlin essays on American speech & euphemisms. Basically a book version of his concerts I've seen on HBO.

Hysterical in places, vile in others. Definitely not politically correct. Not even socially correct. But nobody captures the cynical zeitgeist of our error quite like George Carlin. Recommended, but certainly not for the faint of heart.

I've been a fan of George Carlin for the longest time and have watched his skits countless times. I was in need of a bit of a laugh and decided to give one of his books a try. Sadly, just not the same. Even though, interestingly enough,some passages were identical to skits I've seen, just wasn't the same. They say comedy is all in the delivery and without George's voice and mannerisms, it just didn't find it as amusing. Although I will admit to laughing out loud and drawing some stares during my commutes to and from work. What did surprise me about this book was that I found myself, on a number of occasions, actually offended. When watching a skit, I know George is putting on a show and doesn't actually mean lots of the things he says. But when you actually see some of these hateful words on the printed page, they are quite jarring. Just goes to demonstrate the power of the printed word. Perhaps that was what George was shooting for. Miss you George.… (mer)

George Carlin's comedy is generally witty, subversive, intelligent and often linguistic! Unfortunately it's not always :( This book was off to a strong start (or I was just more into), but was only intermittently funny in the second half or so.
