For A Different Generation, 8 September 2009
Author: sedativchunk from United States

George Carlin's recent material I love. "It's Bad For Ya" is probably the most funny stand up act I have ever seen, and it's sad that it had to be Carlin's last performance on HBO. Besides that, I also enjoyed his 2005 performance on HBO.

Being a big fan of his acts from the 2000's, I thought I would check out some of his older material. I watched "Carlin At Carnegie" tonight and I was mildly amused. It felt like I was watching old crap that they pop in at the doctors office, not George Carlin's modern comedy that I've grown to love. Carlin talks about things such as greeting people, food, and pets. I cracked up for the food part, as I reminded me of myself as I also used to get called "fussy" or a "fuss pot."

Besides the entertaining food part, I didn't find anything else really funny in this act, especially the news segment where Carlin sits at the desk and reads cards with the news. Then he went on about dogs later on in the act. I love dogs and everything Carlin talked about was true, but I don't find dogs being a good subject for stand up material.

I believe because of todays standards that Carlin set himself, this stand up wasn't as good. Long time Carlin fans that were alive when this was made may find it funny, but I certainly did not.
