More matter with less art

George Carlin

Don’t worry about the subtitles, just watch and listen:

It’s Carlin at the height of his considerable comic powers. Louis CK has commented in awe on this performance, noting that other lesser comedians would build up and place as a centrepoint gag the type of joke that Carlin uses at the very front of the show (“why…why…why…”). The first half hour of this HBO Special is just so strong, so good.
