Excellent Compilation
13 November 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

George Carlin's latest collection of some more best of bits (a continuation of his 1996 video Best Stuff) is a refreshing and of course as usual hilarious retread and is a great retrospective for any Carlin fan or just comedy fan in general. The best bits: Dog Incident, Hitler, Al Sleet, and It's Not a Sport, plus a fine beginning segment with George trying on different hats. A+
