When George Carlin was asked which HBO concert was his favorite, his answer was always, "Jammin' in New York." The reasons are several: It was his first HBO show done live; it was the first he had done in his hometown, New York City; and it was the largest audience he had ever worked before: 6,500. But Carlin said it also represented a new-found sophistication in his writing. "It was the first time I had done truly extended pieces consisting of separate sections all flowing together. It was a big leap for me." The show, taped at the Paramount Theater in Madison Square Garden and winner of the 1993 CableACE Award, is a perfect blend of biting social commentary and more gently-observed observational pieces. Routines include: "Rockets and Penises in the Persian Gulf," "Little Things We Share," "Airline Announcements," "Golf Courses for the Homeless," and "The Planet is Fine (The People Are Screwed)."
