George Carlin: Complaints & Grievances -- 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.

far from his best material, 19 December 2001
Author: OzzyCash from Nashville, TN

Don't get me wrong this was still a funny show but it's far from his best because the man is so great. He starts off pretty good for a minute or so then gets into car crashes, Sept. 11, and scabs, toenails and other weird stuff that I didn't find funny at all but then he starts complaining about people that should die then finally the 10 commandments and that stuff is right on his game material! So if you buy his cd of this you might want to skip the first few tracks but at least 65% of it is pretty darn funny.
