00:00:00 Good evening, I'm Shana Alexander.
00:00:02 Home Box Office has asked me to introduce tonight's
00:00:05 On Location featuring George Carlin.
00:00:08 Tonight you will see a performance usually seen
00:00:10 only if you can get to the nightclubs,
00:00:12 college campuses, and theaters where George Carlin
00:00:16 is a constant sell-out.
00:00:17 A portion of Mr. Carlin's performance needs
00:00:19 special introduction, at least for television.
00:00:22 His target is language, how we use it and abuse it.
00:00:26 Some would simply say that tonight's language
00:00:28 is very strong.
00:00:29 Others would say it goes beyond this,
00:00:31 and would find it vulgar.
00:00:33 Aristophanes, Chaucer and Shakespeare were vulgar,
00:00:35 too, at times.
00:00:37 Anyway, the segment is controversial;
00:00:39 it provoked a legal proceeding
00:00:41 At the Federal Communications Commission.
00:00:43 In March of this year I am happy to say,
