Storyline

When George Carlin is asked which HBO concert is his favorite, his answer is always, "Jammin' In New York." The reasons are several: It was his first HBO show done live; it was the first he had done in his hometown, New York City; and it was the largest audience he had ever worked before: 6,500.But Carlin says it also represented a newfound sophistication in his writing. "It was the first time I had done truly extended pieces consisting of separate sections all flowing together. It was a big leap for me."The show, taped at the Paramount Theater in Madison Square Garden and winner of the 1992 CableACE Award, is a perfect blend of biting social commentary and more gently-observed observational pieces.

Quotes

George Carlin: As soon as they close the door to the aircraft, that's when they begin the Safety Lecture. I love the safety lecture! This is my favorite part of the airplane ride! I listen very carefully to the safety lecture, especially that part where they teach us how to use the seatbelts! Imagine this: here we are, a plane full of grown human beings... many of us partially educated, and they're actually taking time out to describe the intricate workings of a belt buckle!

he kicks ass
10 August 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

George Carlin has been talking about the way Americans act, talk, what should be taken out, and why are we sensitive. In Jammin in New York, he goes all out in a way I had never seen him. I had seen his special on HBO in January of 2002, which I got to say made me laugh more than anybody on the planet. Some of the lines like: somebody got f*ck in the ass! BLTPT! BLTPT! made me laugh my ass off. I only wish Sam Kinison were alive to see it

From the specials i have seen George Carlin in, Jammin in New York is the best one
