Trivia

This special was originally a proposed concert film titled "The Illustrated George Carlin". It was to feature animated segments interspersed with Carlin's stand-up. But Carlin ran over budget and the segments were discarded. Carlin eventually used this idea in George Carlin: Carlin on Campus (1984). See more »

George Carlin's recent death made me decide to watch some of his old stuff. "On Location: George Carlin at Phoenix" is a real classic. Talking about death, time and of course the Seven Dirty Words, George gives it his all; to top it off, he even shows some pictures of himself as a boy (while giving joke commentary) and has his wife come out onto the stage.

All in all, George Carlin may have left this life, but his memory and humor are here to stay. I sure hope that they stay. I guess that as long as things are really screwed up in our society, there will always be plenty of room for the likes of Carlin.

In conclusion, a comedy classic.
