Storyline

In "Complaints & Grievances," George Carlin's 12th HBO comedy special, taped at the Beacon Theater in New York on November 17, 2001 (ten weeks after 9/11), Carlin casts his usual jaundiced eye on America and its inhabitants.From the events of 9/11, to the Ten Commandments, to why you should never stop if you run someone over with your car, nothing is sacred to this 45-year veteran of the comedy scene. Self-help books, answering machines, gun nuts, visors, motivational seminars, pictures of children, singers with one name, hot air balloons and guys named Todd; take your pick. They all come in for a special, closer Carlin look in this latest hilarious collection. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

George Carlin: Here's a group of musical vermin whose mothers we wish had had a medical plan that included abortion: These singers who think they're so special they only need one name. Bono, Sting, Jewel, Tiffany, Prince. What a crock of shit! Get a fucking last name, would you please? Here's a nice two word name for you; Pretentious Cocksucker! Huh, how do you like that, Bono? It's not bad enough the music sucks, but with no last name, you can't find out where these people live so you can throw a fuckin' ...

dont listen to what they say!
1 August 2002 | by (Hellview, pop. 96) – See all my reviews

Yes, he does talk about toenails and lip crud....but the thing about this material is that its TRUE. All the people that said it wasn't funny said that because they know they do all that all the time and are embarassed! We are just human! Our bodies and minds have evolved enough to the point where we find it amusing to flatulate and play with our toenails. Live with it! Classic Carlin does include him noticing things we do but don't talk about! You are not any better of a person to say you do not do this things, so get over it. Anyways, this was a good show, not one of his best i agree, but good none-the-less. Get both of his books (Brain Droppings, and Napalm and Silly Putty) to get all his A material throughout the years, trust me.
