George Carlin: Live at Carnegie is an early concert film from the lively and legendary stand-up comedian. Many performers have made it to the hallowed Carnegie Hall of New York City, but few have had their comic routines presented before the Supreme Court. In this 1983 film, Carlin returns to his infamous "Filthy Words" routine, about the seven words considered unsuitable for the public airwaves. This issue went before the highest court in the land, and Carlin uses his sharp wit and brilliant humor to explore what is and is not acceptable in a free society. Always willing to tackle controversial or uncomfortable topics, Carlin also discusses abortion and a recent heart attack. The evening includes material from his album, "A Place for My Stuff," including classic routines on Rice Krispies, fussy eaters and having a nice day. His sometimes bleak, always hysterical take on American culture, habits and religion combines laughter and thought-provoking commentary.
