9781565119161: George Carlin Reads to You: An Audio Collection Including Recent Grammy Winners Braindroppings and Napalm & Silly Putty

Great comedy and a good deal, this new gift set gathers three timeless Carlin recordings including two Grammy® winners.

If one George Carlin audio is funny, then two are funnier and three must be funniest, right? That's our thinking behind this new collection. It's a HighBridge library of laugh-out-loud, award-winning recordings featuring George himself performing many of his best bits. His latest book will be out this fall. Warm up with these hilarious classics--and enjoy serious savings. The set includes:

Brain Droppings. Acerbic observations, manic musings, in-your-face questions, witty work play, and more "droppings" from Carlin's singular brain. "I put a dollar in a change machine. Nothing changed." &quote;Why are there no recreational drugs taken in suppository form?" The first Carlin book on audio and a 2001 Grammy® winner.

Napalm & Silly Putty. Carlin invents Past-Tense TV ("Got Smart," "Father Knew Best," "It Was Left to Bever"), crusades for the Center for Research into the Heebie Jeebies, founds the George Carlin Book Club (recommended reading: Fill Your Life with Croutons), and suggest that "If the shoe fits, get another just like it." A 2002 Grammy® winner.

More Napalm & Silly Putty. Everything that wouldn't fit on the first Napalm recording--like "A Day in the Life of Henry VIII," "Sports Should Be Fixed," compelling confessions ("I couldn't commit suicide if my life depended on it"), and candid takes on life's little moments ("I'm beyond the nice day"), all delivered with wicked glee.
