    Seeing George's Show

    I always wanted to see George live and a couple of years before he passed I had the chance. He appeared at Turning Stone Casino in Upstate New York and I enjoyed his show immensely. We were even treated to some brand new material he was working on. His sense of humor was unique.

    I Remeber It Like Yesterdays Dinner

    Greatest Compliment of My Life.

    Back in the 80's I did a stint as a stand up comic at a club in New Jersey.  One of the regular comics there, who I thought was amazing, came to me one night after my set and told me that I not only reminded him of GC in my delivery, but that my material was almost as good.

    Long Live The King!

    George Carlin was the KING of comedy, commentary, and actually speaking the cold, hard truth--as bluntly and no-holds-barred-style as it was. You can't NOT love that quality in a person! If you don't love it--then you're about as closed-minded as a politician. Not good--no sirree...

    One Hilarious Comedian!

     A while back on HBO they had a George Carlin marathon, this was about the time he had died. I watched about 3 hours (it was 5+ hours long) I was laughing so hard my ribs hurt. He is so hilarious. I love the way he looked at life. He was sarcastic and said things that was so...

    What A Man

    Hands down, my favorite stand up comedian of all time.There are plenty of comedians who are offensive. However, there are not many whose offensive content actually has a message (most of it is offensive just for the hell of it). I loved how he wasn't afraid to address taboo...

    "The Status Quo Sucks"

     I do not just "like" George Carlin. I ******* love him. His musings on politics, religion, euphamisms, life, and sodomy are not only funny, they're philosophically brilliant. For example: This is a little prayer dedicated to the separation of...

    What Would George Say Now?

    Those Seven Words

    A friend and I were just talking about swearing in front of our kids, she was driving and called another driver a "douche bag".  Now that's not the worse thing you can call someone and I said it wasn't technically a swear word because it wasn't on Carlin's list of seven.  I...

    A Brilliant Star's Light Is Dark Forever More

    George Carlin was a brillian star.  He dropped out of school in the 9th grade, but was one of the most intelligent comedians to grace both stage and screen.  I will miss his humor and counter-culter experience.

    George Carlin On War

    I am about to quote, to the best of my recollection, what George Carlin said during one of his routines on HBO. I might not be getting the wording exactly right but I don't think I'd be completely changing the points he tried to make."During World War 1, the troops came down...

    I thoroughly enjoy the Flip Wilson reruns on

    Aspire. George Carlin was not only a writer for the show but he was a character actor on this show too. I loved him as the news caster, hippy dippy weatherman, and as a sports reporter.

    Among the Greats

    George Carlin was one of a very few comedians along with people like Lenny Bruce and Lewis Black, who moved stand up beyond simple jokes into something of an art form.  Even if you listen to his performances, he always held an almost rhythmical delivery and theatrical facial...

    My Favorite Comic, Poet, Sociologist, Etc...

    I loved Carlin's views on society, culture and how they tie into language. A lot of people know him for his seven dirty words, but I enjoyed the words he said were harmful to society... euphemisms. He's totally right about it, too.

    So Much More Than A Comedian

    The man is without a doubt the greatest comedian to have ever lived. I base this on his lifetime of achievements in comedy and his intelligent sense of humor. For an individual to remain current and funny from an appearance in 1966 up to his last show in 2008, is a feat which no...
