Few comedians have achieved such wide critical acclaim, or made such an irrevocable mark on the culture they relentlessly mocked, as the infamous and sadly now-departed George Carlin, whose biting satirical stand-up has been a staple on major cable network HBO since the late 1970s.
Carlin’s totally matter-of-fact demeanor ramps up the electrifying humor of his unbearably sharp observations, and Class Clown, his third live comedy album, contains some of his most well-known monologues, which are, yes, perhaps vulgar, but in the way only Carlin can manage to be: vulgar with a kind of absurd and thoroughly entertaining social purpose. For comedy fans, this classic album is absolutely not to be missed!
