George Carlin, Jammin' In New York LP
An older, angrier George Carlin riffs on the sexuality of Operation Desert Storm, the inanity of airline announcements, sporting solutions for the nation's homeless, and the likely future of the planet in yet another virtuoso comedy performance first televised as an HBO special. Whatever his topic (or should that be target?), Carlin's jokes hinge upon keen-eyed and reasoned social commentary. This is poisonous satire disguised as mass entertainment. Fans of the comedian's earlier work may not appreciate this curious new George Carlin.
