`It's Bad For Ya' is George Carlin's last recorded comedy concert before his death and from the word go you get his usual uncompromising, irreverent brand of humour. Walking around his living room set he shares with us his thoughts on a variety of topics and although he comes across as angry and cynical, he was also very intelligent and pertinent. Carlin's style is very reminiscent of Bill Hicks, and he even uses some of the same phrases at times, and if you like one it is a good bet you will enjoy the other. This concert covers topics like old age, death, religion, child worship/Overprotected children, stupid boring people, docile public, patriotism, civic customs and rights. Pretty much what we have come to expect from Carlin over the years. There is strong language throughout and you need to not be easily offended to enjoy his style of comedy, but to be honest most comedians are more offensive and abusive these days than Carlin ever was; it's just the more conservative elements in society don't like him opening peoples eyes to the hypocrisy and lies of those in authority. That is the message this DVD leaves you with, to always question everything, and that is a great bit of advice whatever your thoughts on life. A funny show and well worth watching.
