Storyline

When George Carlin is asked which HBO concert is his favorite, his answer is always, "Jammin' In New York." The reasons are several: It was his first HBO show done live; it was the first he had done in his hometown, New York City; and it was the largest audience he had ever worked before: 6,500.But Carlin says it also represented a newfound sophistication in his writing. "It was the first time I had done truly extended pieces consisting of separate sections all flowing together. It was a big leap for me."The show, taped at the Paramount Theater in Madison Square Garden and winner of the 1992 CableACE Award, is a perfect blend of biting social commentary and more gently-observed observational pieces.

Quotes

George Carlin: Let me tell you about endangered species, all right? Saving endangered species is just one more arrogant attempt by humans to control nature. It's arrogant meddling! It's got what got us in trouble in the first place. Doesn't anybody understand that? Interfering with nature! Over ninety percent... over, WAY OVER ninety percent of all the species that EVER lived on this planet, EVER lived, are gone. Wssst! They're extinct! We didn't kill them all. They just... disappeared. That's what nature ...

he kicks ass
10 August 2003 | by departed07See all my reviews

George Carlin has been talking about the way Americans act, talk, what should be taken out, and why are we sensitive. In Jammin in New York, he goes all out in a way I had never seen him. I had seen his special on HBO in January of 2002, which I got to say made me laugh more than anybody on the planet. Some of the lines like: somebody got f*ck in the ass! BLTPT! BLTPT! made me laugh my ass off. I only wish Sam Kinison were alive to see it

From the specials i have seen George Carlin in, Jammin in New York is the best one
