Carlin is always fun

A nice interview with George Carlin
I enjoyed listening to George Carlin answer question about his stand up and ablums humor, his tours etc, It was a good history on Carlin told by Carlin.
I felt like Gold controled too much of the interview no letting Carlin give really long answers to stories in his life.
Too short, I really wanted more, wanted more of his comedy. Or at least more of his history, I felt I got very little of any of those thing.
Yes and NO, I enjoyed listening George Carlin answer the question, but it was a little to little and I was left wanting more.
It didn't really satify all my question about George Carlin, I have heard better interviews of him before which have made me jaded.
