George Carlin Napalm and Silly Putty book review


I’m a huge fan of George Carlin, I absolutely love his stand up. To be honest though I probably won’t review any more of his books just because they are all so similar. The interesting thing about George Carlin books, is it as if someone wrote down an exact replica of his stand up, and it works! Napalm and Silly Putty is his first book, and it cracks me up every time I read it or listen to it on tape during a long drive. Carlin’s humor is almost completely observational. He sees the humor in everyday life, but unlike most comedians now a days, he is smart! His jokes are clever, to the point, and he is not afraid to offend. A comedian that doesn’t hold back, is the best. All of his books are a must read, but this one tops them all.

  1. I haven’t read any books by Carlin, but what I’ve found is that when I have read many books by the same author, some themes and character types are often repeated. The same thing happens in other art media. Sometimes it’s good to take a break from an author.
