I didn't find either of these funny. Maybe you have to be Catholic to find A funny..I don't know. I could enjoy Carlin's way with a story though and on that level found it quite engaging. B was just childish, the poor man's South Park.
Yeah, I admit my inner 12-year-old thinks B&B finding their adult equivalents in a state of suspended adolescence is pretty damned funny, but it's not as funny as Carlin poking affectionate fun at his own childhood. I guess the folks that think he became hectoring in later years have a point, but this period is pretty unrelentingly funny and both pointing and poignant. The whole "six sins in one field!" part is delivered exquisitely.
A easily, though B could have won a lot of previous matches.

Carlin's clever, and there are amusing moments in the clip, but - I don't know, I can't be arsed with him and his schtick really. In fact I'm realising that comedians talking at length isn't ever going to tickle me very much - whether it's Billy Connolly or Bill Hicks or this fella. You feel buried under words. It's a very difficult thing to do right.
B made me laugh. It's a great moment in what is a very funny film.
