Good flashback

I like this special. Here, we see George Carlin give out two new comedy stand-up bits and an interview to comedian Jon Stewart. But also, there is a 15 minute look at Carlin's old stuff through the 1960's till now. Very funny stuff, but mainly vintage wise. Good comedy, especially at the ripe golden age of 60. A+
