Occupation Foole was comedian George Carlin’s third release for the Little David label in 1973 and the follow up to Class Clown. While this disc as a whole lives up to Carlin’s insightful brilliance, it’s the least powerful of his early releases. Some of these bits, especially the revamped “Seven Dirty Words” routine, “Filthy Words,” come across like after thoughts that haven’t been fully developed.
