AllMusic Review by

Long ago, in the days before the Seven Words You Can't Say On Television, there was Burns & Carlin -- the Carlin half of the team was George Carlin, and the Burns half was Jack Burns, who has since drifted into obscurity. This LP captured part of their act, including a tribute to Lenny Bruce and Mort Sahl. A lot of hard work that doesn't go anywhere in particular (Lenny Bruce had mined most of the territory much earlier), but it does show the roots of Carlin's later work.
