My first George Carlin special is a tribute
23 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Before Atheism, laughing at the incidents around the world, hating the government and the systems in America, cheering for the villains on all sides along with having a mind for critical thinking, George Carlin's "You are all Diseased" was the first stand up special I saw of the famous comedian on HBO in the early months of 1999 where not only did I laugh my butt off, I was also at the early stages of a young man where I thought about what he said from religion being full of you-know-what to how pathetic we Americans are in terms of sensitivity and want things done in a orderly fashion were right on the money. The more I watched his programs, the more I understood.

"You are all diseased" concentrates on things that make George very upset off from white people acting black (ex: the blues brothers), airport security (an early prophecy before 9/11), kids (too much concentration from school shootings to uniforms), America (and I agree with reason), and religion (who doesn't agree with me?); he also has suggestions on club and restaurant names to programs that would have jump the ratings board and songs just for kicks.

As a fan of George for over nine years and hearing the recent of his passing, I raise my glass and say thanks for the memories and laughter while at the same time educating us to be better people without being fodder like the rest of the world.

Cheers, George.
