From Amazon.com

As America's preeminent inheritor of Lenny Bruce's singular comic legacy, George Carlin has long been the dangerous comic it's safe to love. But as America itself has co-opted the "free expression" Carlin holds so dear, he has become a foot soldier without a battlefield. Sadly, Carlin's new album You Are All Diseased--culled from his 1998 HBO special--finds him crossing the line into near-total social impotence. His take on such "cutting edge" topics as airport security, cigar smoking, and the Clinton-Lewinsky affair couldn't get a rise out of a factious prison inmate, and his failure to find subversion in subtlety is more obvious than ever. Carlin's riffs on religion and terrorism are sloppy, valuing hollow extremity over the cutting observation that characterized 1996's Back in Town album. There are a few classic lines here--"If white people are gonna burn down black churches, then black people oughta burn down the House of Blues"--but more often than not, this grumpy old man sounds like a certain Dana Carvey character of the same disposition. Where's the danger in that? --Matt Hanks

george carlin is one of the best comedians around mainly as he avoids been politically correct and focuses on the areas of life that u wouldn't usually see as being funny but yet makes them hilarious mental images that you couldn't help but laugh at. if you are gonna try any of his material for a first time listen this live recording really has to be the one.

I heard an analogy recently that new born babies are like Diamonds & that, as they grow, they learn manipulation & pretensions, which covers the Diamond in Horse muck, finished off with a sheen of nail polish to make it seem something pretty when it ain't.
The Refreshing thing about listening to George Carlin is that he is all Diamond. Although what he says is not pretty, it is heartfelt truth & he may be cynical & crude, but that is what the World is often like & he is merely speaking his mind.

This CD seemed to me to typify the later George Carlin in being someone who was Blunt & Brutally honest (as opposed to the early George Carlin who was more people-pleasing & witty). I was not disappointed.

Essentially the entire show consists of Carlin griping about things that annoy him. Most of the time, this can get dull (as with Grumpy Old Men), but the quirkiness of his view of the World means that things that annoy him are different to normal people & funnier as a result.

Starting with a rant about airport security (and how people should take more risks), he moves through subjects as diverse as Little House on the Prairie, Angels, Barbed Wire Tattoos & his State-of-the-Art Immune System. Each time he brings interesting insight & unleashes an arsenal of insults & plain common sense on them so that you feel you've seen the World through an unusual perspective (even though his is a simple, no bull[] philosophy.)

Naturally, the one criticism of this is that it's not for everyone & there are many who will be offended by much of what he says.

Format: Audio CD
I have heard George Carlin compared to a one-man "Grumpy Old Men" show. That is a massive understatement and only scratches the surface of describing his propensity to express his contentious opinions on a wide range of topics from religion, to children, to old people and so on and so forth, in a relentless, strident and unapologetic fashion.

The words that best categorise his delivery style would include, "haranguing", "tirade", "fanfaronade", "bombastic", "cynical", "biting", "cutting", "acidic", "disparaging", "vitriolic", and above all peppered with profanities...and even these probably do not given sufficient credit to his derogatory and controversial deliverances.

And yet much to many peoples surprise, and to an extent horror, including my own, much of what George Carlin rails on about, finds a spot (quite a large spot in fact) in the darker recesses of our minds that actually agrees with his observations and views and we only wish that we had the 'balls' to come out of the shadows and express our true feelings. Then reality kicks back in and we content ourselves with just listening to his recorded material, laughing inwardly and leaving it at that.

"You Are All Diseased", is a fine example of his uniquely bold 'attack' on a range of topics, that at the same time is very entertaining and thought provoking.

Alas George is no longer with us and before he died I wonder whether he heeded his own words, "I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible a whole lot more as they get older; then it dawned on me - they're cramming for their final exam." I do hope he graduated with honours and is looking downwards on us now, and not as I suspect, looking upwards sweating.

always funny, always controversial, having said that, he said it as it was. Missed greatly he will stand the test of time. Bet he has them all in stitches wherever he is...

George for president! 27 Feb. 2002
By Would-RVM245 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
First of all, I have one thing to say to all the people who have been offended by the material on You are All Diseased: Why are you listening to George Carlin in the first place? George has always TRIED to offend people like you, the typical yuppie American sheep who will believe anything the media, government, and church tell you to. If you don't like what he is saying, then cancel HBO and spend the rest of your time watching the Disney Channel and taking your kids to soccer practice. George has never wanted or needed you to be part of his audience. Carlin has always been a comic for people who like to think outside the box. His entire career is based on counter-culture comedy and that is just what makes him such a genius. Not only is this album side-splittingly funny, but George's ideas are so well thought out that you can't help but at least see his point of view, if not agree with him completely. This album ranks right up there with Jammin' and Back in Town as his best material. A hilarious, bitter old man venting his frustrations about society, just what us "thinking people" need in this culture of malls, political correctness, and soccer moms.

brutally hilarious 14 Nov. 2000
By Mike - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
So, after more than 30 years in comedy, what can you expect from the 60-something Carlin? Let me tell you...
...Wild outbursts, random perverted thoughts, brutally honest societal comments and observations, hilarious yells and screams, and the funniest (...) jokes you'll hear in any album recorded by any comedian, ever.
"You Are All Diseased" takes daring jabs at subjects no one else ever had the [guts] to tackle - children, god, religion, and people in general. The things he says on this recording will do one of two things for you: make you laugh so hard you'll bust a gut or repulse you beyond belief. Heed my warning before buying...if you're easily offended or a conservative, white upper-class Republican, you're probably going to hate this album and despise George Carlin for all eternity. But, if you love a good laugh like I do and aren't afraid to hear some seriously honest and BOLD remarks on everything you can think of, by all means get Carlin's latest. It's a true classic in its own time.

In defense of George and this album. 12 Jan. 2000
By Jerry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I saw George on this tour at the John Harms theater in New Jersey (which preceeded the show that became the HBO special and this CD by a few months). I must say that seeing him live made the whole experience much cooler. He always makes me feel better about things. The show was great and this album is terrific.
A lot of the reviews here seem to be negative, which is fine, but I'm not sure I get some of the reasoning behind them. Some people seem to be quite selective about which topics they like George to riff on, and which they find offensive. This is selfish of them, to want the man's act to adhere to their personal criteria for taste. You need to take this as an entire body of work, I think. Others are of the opinion that George has 'lost it' or something to that effect, and they seem to enjoy dissecting the act to the degree that one might do with Shakespeare, or a graduate thesis. He's a comedian, people! Jeez. Anyway, I find him to be as sharp as ever. Not to say that he can do no wrong, but he's still an exceptional communicator and thinker.
Others think he's too bitter. Too bitter? That's what I love about him to begin with! His negativity is a healthy jolt for society's terminally-softened minds. The anger is also endearing to me, since George has said he believes (as do I) the notion that beneath the surface of every cynic you will find a disapointed idealist. He's disappointed in the way humanity appears to be turning out, and I for one agree. If you don't feel that way, that's fine too; but it doesn't make anyone anyone wrong or right. It's his opinion, and he makes a case for it very intelligently.
One person in this review thread honestly thinks George Carlin lacks credibility (!). Well, I honestly think that person is smoking crack. George is a comic LEGEND, has been doing comedy since he was a child, and has been through fifty times more impressionable life experiences than I have; in my opinion he's got 'cred' coming out of both ears, okay? If you don't believe me on this point, or you'd just like to learn about George on a much more personal level, check out an excellent interview he gave on the Art Bell radio show in November, 1999. You can listen to it (it's in Real Player format) off of Art Bell's website. It's free. Oh yeah: The reviewer who made such a big deal about the title being 'YOU are all Diseased' instead of 'WE are all Diseased' needs to get a life. To me, that title is the product of someone who, after a life of trying his best, simply no longer wishes to be associated with a species he views as a failed one. The 'disease' in this case has a cure: start thinking for yourself and live your life accordingly. If you'd have felt better had he lumped himself in with the rest of society in general by saying 'WE' instead of 'YOU', than you appear to be saying that you value your own insecurity and complacency more that George's honesty and integrity. Sorry, but he's not just going to pat you on the head and tell you that it's all alright.
Bottom line: I love George Carlin's work, and I think his views are healthy for people to hear and consider. He's so, so funny, this album included. If you like the stuff he's put out particularly since the late 1980's until the present, this album will make you really happy.

I am now an official Carlin fan 20 Mar. 2005
By Jason Voigt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's true...it's true. This is actually my first Carlin album that I downloaded and this is awesome. My best friend tried to get me to listen to 'There Is No God' but the Christian I am, I decided not to listen to it because judging by the title, a Christian person would not listen to it. But for some reason I gave it a chance. George may or may not be an Atheist, but the way he tells the story is just plain hilarious. I learned he is one of the most honest comedians out there, and for a guy who's almost 70 he's still got it (even though this was taped 6 yrs ago). I actually saw Cigars and many things in a different way after hearing this. I didn't realize it was not right for whites to sing the blues (with the exception of Eric Clapton, of course). The 'Airport Security' skit is probably the most hilarious but more ironic 9/11 came along. I 'happen to' enjoy this and I am now in the process of hearing some more of Carlin's work.

Carlin at his best! 4 Jun. 2002
By drgonzo12286 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am a huge George Carlin fan who is currently trying to build up my CD collection. Recently I came across this in a store and it is the best purchase I have made in a long time. George is our last truly angry man and no one can escape his wrath. In this album he gives his hillariously funny opinions on Airport Security, The House of Blues, Politically Correct Language, Buisness, religion, and many other areas. This is one of my favorite Carlin albums and I'd recomend it to anyone. Unless of course you are a Christian Conservative, or a Conservative Christian.
