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

Didn't anyone else see this accident? Are you the only one who can provide information? Surely the people you ran over caught a glimpse of it at the last moment. So let them tell the police what happened. They were a lot closer to it then you were. There is no sense having two conflicting stories floating around about the same dumbass traffic accident

Once again, George Carlin, one of the most unintimidated and intelligent comics of this or any generation, comes with even more dead on points on many subjects with hilarious results. Here, he tackles mainly minor things, but it is still mostly golden including: The 10 Commandments, Honor students and the parents of them, singers with one name, and of course masturbation. In other words, it's a really fun (and funny) show. A little bit of seriousness comes here and there, but it is still awesome to watch. A+
