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.
This award winning special finds Carlin in peak form--angry, perceptive and hilarious. He has never been funnier as he applies his own special brand of humor to the American government, eating disorders and everything in between!
George Carlin, one of the most sardonic and satirical comedians in the business, once again uses his sharp-edged wit to dissect political figures, government agencies... and eating disorders. This special received an Emmy nomination, and features Carlin in top form.
