Audible Editor Reviews

Even after his death, comedian George Carlin remains one of the most well-loved and respected comedians of all time. While preparing for his 12th HBO special, he spoke with stand-up comic and Daytime Emmy Award-winning writer and producer of The Rosie O'Donnell Show Judy Gold about his life and career. Carlin displays his usual irreverent and sharp intelligence as he talks about hypocrisy and the power people inadvertently assign to words, explaining his famous "Seven Dirty Words" routine in detail. Carlin also reminisces about the start of his career and how his trouble with the IRS forced him to work harder on his shows and improve his writing.

A nice interview with George Carlin

What did you like best about George Carlin with Judy Gold at the 92nd Street Y? What did you like least?

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.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

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.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Judy Gold?


Was George Carlin with Judy Gold at the 92nd Street Y worth the listening time?

Yes and NO, I enjoyed listening George Carlin answer the question, but it was a little to little and I was left wanting more.

Any additional comments?

It didn't really satify all my question about George Carlin, I have heard better interviews of him before which have made me jaded.
