From his early days:



This bit made me want to be a comedian more than anything. Wonder what happened to those days?

For some reason which I can't figure, I wasn't with my family the night they went to Milwaukee's Summerfest to hear George Carlin. That was the night he got arrested for using the Seven Words You Can't Say on Television...

My favorite bit of his (besides this one and "Class Clown") was him comparing himself to Richard Pryor: "Richard Pryor had a heart attack, I had a heart attack. Richard Pryor had another heart attack, I had another heart attack. Richard Pryor set himself on fire, I said 'fuck you' and had another heart attack."

Rest in peace, George.
