Growing up in New York City, George Carlin was always the class clown. He went on to become one of the great comedians of our time, with appeal that has spanned generations. His brand of provocative sociopolitical commentary and his scathing comic style have brought him four Grammy awards, most recently in 2002. He was the first-ever host of NBC's "Saturday Night Live," and has starred in twelve of his own HBO specials. He continues to perform to sold-out audiences at venues across the country.
George Carlin's sixth HBO standup concert special, What Am I Doing In New Jersey? aired as a live broadcast from the Park Theater in Union City, New Jersey. The live performance includes classic routines "Cars & Driving II," "Reagan's Gang, Church People And American Values," "People I Can Do Without" and "Keeping People Alert."
Taped live at New Jersey's Park Theater, Carlin has free reign as he delivers his own unique brand of observational humor. His topics run the gamut from modern society to culture to politics.
