Storyline

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 Anonymous

Quotes

George Carlin: Here are some more parents who ought to be beaten with heavy clubs and left bleeding in the moonlight: these are the ones who carry their babies around in their backpacks or frontpacks or slings or whatever these devices are called that are apparently designed to leave the parents hands free to sort through high-end merchandise and reach for their platinum credit cards.

As Funny As Always!
13 February 2005 | by malakaiiiSee all my reviews

George Carlin is awesome! After watching and re-watching all of his older bits, it was wonderful to see one of his newer shows. The old tapes tend to go over and over the same jokes... It really is refreshing to see this stuff.

As he gets older, he becomes even more bitter, which just makes him funnier! The guy is a bloody genius. His jokes are very clever. One of my favourite comedians by far.

Admittedly, the part about scabs seems to go on a little long, but it's made up for with the gems about People who Need to Die and the 10 Commandments.

If you like to laugh, and you're not easily offended, I would suggest this show!
