George Carlin: George's Best Stuff

"I think it’s the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately."   - George Carlin

release year: 1996
genre: stand-up comedy
viewing setting: home DVD 8/13/13

synopsis: This is a series of clips from various Carlin shows between 1977 and 1990, with some of his best material.

impressions: This is a pretty good slice of his career, with pretty much all of his funniest routines. Most of it is from before he got really negative and political as he aged. There are dozens of laugh-out-loud moments and he improvises well on the fly.

acting: Not applicable, but the man was genuinely funny.

final word: Probably the one essential "greatest hits" type DVD of Carlin.
