George Carlin: Genius-Comedian-Realist


George Carlin has been my hero since I was a kid. I collected all of his albums and all of his books. If there's one celebrity I came close to worshipping, it would be Carlin.


George bravely told the truth about society, government and freedom of speech. He would shout what he thought from the mountain (or at least the stage) and make you laugh while thinking about what he said.


One of my favorite comedy bits I remember, from one of his older albums, was the one about the dog farting. The people in the room were blaming the fart on each other. Then one of them cried out, "I saw the dog's anus open up!" Mom, dad, my sister and I laughed so hard at that, that tears ran from our eyes. George could do that to ya.


I will really miss George Carlin. He told the truth about the crazy antics of our society and he expressed his observations with the intelligence and humor that no one else will ever be able to match.


As a tribute to my hero, I've placed several videos of him doing what he does best at the bottom of this page. Take a look and a listen.


Rest In Peace

So true. Bill Hicks and George Carlin have truly influenced the way I observe today's society.

My dad shouldn't have let me watch how to use the turntable at five years old. I started listening to George Carlin albums when i was about 7 years old. I knew Class Clown and 7 words by heart before I ever learned my multiple tables in math.

Kelly said...

Hey Tommy, you got started young listening to Carlin like I did. Cool.

kushmoney: Yes he did. He told the truth.

ocean: Yeah, both Carlin and Kurt Vonnegut were my heaviest influences on how I look at society. Both have died, recently. Both will be missed, greatly.

I had never even heard of george carlin until the new started talking about his death. After watching the videos you have up and some videos on youtube I'm a fan. He brings up a lot of important stuff that's taboo to talk about and manages to make it hilarious. Very cool. That's what comedy should be about.

I'm glad you're a fan now, Jared. That's cool, too. And yes, his viewpoints on today's society really made you think. I almost always agreed with what George had to say. He made me laugh like a loon, too.
