Product Overview

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.Rockets and Penises in the Persian GulfLittle Things We ShareAirline AnnouncementsGolf Courses for the HomelessThe Planet is Fine (The People are Screwed)System Requirements:Running Time 83 Mins.Format: DVD MOVIE

ReviewSource DVD Talk
Review Originally aired in April 1992, "Jammin' In New York" marks George Carlin's eighth HBO comedy special and the first of which he broadcast live. It came at a high point in the master comic's creative output, following a string of brilliant sets that began a decade earlier. (His earlier work was terrific, to be sure, but beginning in the 1980s, Carlin began producing well-crafted, meticulously written concerts that flowed together with much greater ease; on top of that, the comedy was simply funnier.) It's said that Carlin himself considers this his very favorite work, and it's hard to disagree.
