Quotes

George Carlin: As long as I'm being a complete pig up here, let me ask you guys a question.
[intermitten laughter]
George Carlin: Let me ask one question of the men. Are you ever able to watch a woman eating a banana and NOT think about a blowjob?
[laughter]
George Carlin: I can't do it. And I know why: I'm a sick, evil fuck! I admit that!
[laughter]
George Carlin: I can't do it! Eating a banana, eating a pickle, licking on an ice cream cone. I'm thinking to myself "LOOK AT THE TOUNGE ON HER! WOW!"

Carlin's Transformation
9 February 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is an underrated and unrecognized breakthrough performance for Carlin. This was the beginning of the transformation to the angry old man of the nineties (this transformation is not complete until Jammin' in New York), tapping into the palpitations released from assault comedians of old (Lenny Bruce) and new (Bill Hicks), pelting out more provocative material together with a far more acerbic delivery. His often hilarious comments about language, cancer, feminism and politics in general, and the general state of modern society are jarring when compared to the "7 words you can't say on television" and "a place for my stuff" routines of old. His thoughts on language are particularly thought provoking, at least for a stand-up comedian.

Interestingly he's even beginning to grow his hair long again, maybe symbolizing his return to the maverick boldness (for the time)of his 70s material--only more aggressive, and updated.

This should keep you smiling--if that's what you like to do. If you don't, then watch this, it might be beneficial, to you. --of course, unless you're offended by what's being said.
