...I think it's called 'Just A RIde'. Documentary + a whole performance. You can probably pick it up dirt cheap on Amazon.
either the "Totally" one that has Revelations and the documentary, or Relentless.
Once you've got those two, you don't really need any of the others as it's pretty much all repeated material - however, you might want to investigate some of the audio stuff (particularly Rant in E Minor).
I've only seen Doug Stanhope's Deadbeat Hero, and it was OK but going on that alone I found him a little over-rated.
Don't know about Carlin DVDs, but there's a lot of good stuff online.
^ 'Totally...' is the one I was on about. 'Just a ride' is just a line from it - no idea why I thought it was the title.
that might be the title of the documentary
Watch it on youtube or VHS, not DVD as it has been censored. Can't remember what bit is cut from the DVD, but remember being outraged when watching it.
is a good in-point for total newcomers, but it's very short and pretty much all the material can be found on better releases.
none of the sets on his DVDs are quite as good as that IMO.
but I can't for the life of me think which are the best ones. I need to relisten.
I'm still putting off relistening to the Lenny Bruce gig I have. I find it so hard to keep up and I don't think it is very funny, but I don't know. He's so fucking cool though!
Do you know what really made me laugh though? The last Rodney Dangerfield gig I listened to. It was probs No Respect.
Probably not actually rubbish, but the modern style of stand-up (ie someone tells jokes and funny anecdotes) is a lot different to the 60s style, which is more like a club compere burbling away between bands.
but I wanted to listen to it one more time as I couldn't understand half of it the first time. I like how he clicks his fingers as he talks.
Now, I've got some cats I've gotta go hang with.
