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 some more people who ought to be strapped into chairs and beaten with hammers: people who wear visors. You know? Let me ask you something: what the fuck is the point in wearing half a hat? Either get a hat or don't; no one's interested in the top of your head. Go back to the store, tell them to give you the rest of the hat. They cheated you. Or better yet, get yourself one of them little Jewish hats and sew it to your visor. Then you've got yourself a full-fledged fucking hat, my friend.

Genius!
10 December 2002 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Very few true geniuses in the comedy world. Bruce, Williams and a few more. Carlin is professor emeritus of any that have been or may ever be. Long after you've laughed till you're crying you'll begin to think about what he said. Then, watch out! You're in for a long night.
