Quotes

George Carlin: Think for a moment about the concept of the flamethrower. Okay? The flamethrower. Because we have them. Well, *we* don't have them, the army has them. That's right. We don't have any flamethrowers. I'd say we're fucked if we have to go up against the army, wouldn't you? But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way to far away to get the job done.

Not the best, but still miles ahead of most other stand-up shows
17 August 2006 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

"Carlin on Campus" is dated in some ways - more so than other Carlin shows. The opening, with Carlin speaking to the audience in a classroom, strikes of being totally unfunny and out of place.

But once he starts the stand-up and begins delving into the typical absurdities of life, he's on a role. Bits like "A Place to Put Your Stuff" has become classic Carlin, although granted this show has less classic routines than most of his shows and albums.

If you're a fan of Carlin suffice to say you will get a kick out of this. If you're new to Carlin I recommend starting with either "Complaints and Grievances" or "Back in Town," which are both very funny.
