Carlin is so sixties. I saw him not long ago on a DVD rental in a concert special and was surprised how little his act has changed in 35 years. The same old four letter words designed to shock, the same old tired establishment targets the same old faux humanism. I was surprised he didn't launch into some Nixon jokes, he was that dated.
I watched about 40 minutes and gave up. As they say, "move along folks, nothin' to see here".
Howie Carr (Boston Talk Radio)- had Carlin on his show last year. Carlin was playing his 'bad boy, common man' schtick to the hilt - then the discussion turned to how many people paid to see him last year - IF the numbers he claims are true and even if he only charges $10 per head - he rakes in millions every year - there are a lot of nostagia mad dopers out there. Carlin's 'brain' was fried years ago and he still doesn't make any sense - didn't he publish a book called 'Brain Farts'? That about describes what comes out of his mouth.
