This is George's second comedy special and he has new comedy and old comedy. A lot of it revolves around his "micro-world", which are the little things like objects on your body, little observations, pets, etc. He switches it up with a lot of new and old comedy which is refreshing, and it's shot on film in some part which is a change of pace. I enjoyed watching stuff I hadn't seen Carling do yet (I just heard the bits on the albums). Here, he does the Seven words you can never say on television, Al Sleet (the "Hippy Dippy weatherman") and many others. Random thoughts from a man could never be better unless they came from George Carlin. And this proves it. A+
