A Breakthrough in Comedy, 12 January 2009
Author: C G from United States

This is one of Carlin's best concerts. It is also the first Carlin concert or material that I was introduced to. Since seeing this at around the age of 13, I have become a huge Carlin fan. And I still laugh at his Rice Crispy jokes from this concert. I also enjoy the ever expanding dirty word list he ends the concert with.

This was certainly a transitional concert for Carlin as well as a break through, as he began moving out of his Hippie phase into his curmudgeon phase. Nut at this point he was still focusing on the little things we have in common, and fart jokes, not really any significant political or global humor in this concert.
