User Reviews

 
Not the best, but still miles ahead of most other stand-up shows
17 August 2006 | by MovieAddict2016See all my reviews

"Carlin on Campus" is dated in some ways - more so than other Carlin shows. The opening, with Carlin speaking to the audience in a classroom, strikes of being totally unfunny and out of place.

But once he starts the stand-up and begins delving into the typical absurdities of life, he's on a role. Bits like "A Place to Put Your Stuff" has become classic Carlin, although granted this show has less classic routines than most of his shows and albums.

If you're a fan of Carlin suffice to say you will get a kick out of this. If you're new to Carlin I recommend starting with either "Complaints and Grievances" or "Back in Town," which are both very funny.
