| Carlin at the top of his game
Arguably George Carlin's most famous and best performance in years, "Back in Town" came late in his career but combines all his best trademarks - rants on abortion, religion, sex, politics, bodily functions, and capital punishment.

Opening with a vicious rant against "pro-life conservative Americans," Carlin begins bringing up points such as, "These people value the sanctity of life - while you're a sperm." He then bitterly moves on towards the death sentence, noting its proposed expansion to cover drug dealers. "You can't give the death sentence to people who don't care about dying!" If you are new to Carlin this is the best place to start - it's easily accessible and is funny, witty and a scathing attack on American society.
