George Carlin's debut comedy album captures him during the tail end of his 
period as a "straight" (i.e., short-haired) comedian (a period in which he also 
played a short-lived role on the series That Girl), and not that far from his 
subsequent counterculture emergence. Apart from the soap opera parody 
Doctor Place in the "Daytime Television" monologue, which seems slow and 
terribly dated, and "The Indian Sergeant" (which is in a category by itself), 
any part of this record could have fit onto his subsequent FM & AM. He rips 
apart television commercials, AM radio, hippies, rock music, and other media 
targets with the speed and spread pattern of a Gatling gun and the precision 
of a surgeon, and it's a statement about the nature of our popular culture 
that a lot of the humor here holds up better, 30 years on, than some of 
Carlin's more iconoclastic work of the 1970s -- some of the momentary lapses 
into gay stereotypes (i.e., Wendell the Witch) seem dated, though they were 
on target at the time (almost openly gay Paul Lynde was a fixture throughout 
the '60s and '70s on commercials and in series like Bewitched and The 
Hollywood Squares). "The Indian Sergeant" is an inspired variation on military 
humor that seems to be a direct offshoot of Carlin's stint in the army, and 
plays brilliantly in that spirit. Oddly enough, this routine has Carlin sounding a lot like his one-time partner Jack Burns, and all quite different from most of 
the rest of this record. Most of it is amazingly fresh, as entertaining as 
Carlin's best work from the '70s, and all of it is a lot more accessible, if not as challenging or groundbreaking.
