I woke up this morning to discover that another of my all time favorites has died. George Carlin, anti-establishment comedian extrodinaire, died last night of heart failure at 71.
George Carlin, the Grammy-Award winning standup comedian and actor who was hailed for his irreverent social commentary, poignant observations of the absurdities of everyday life and language, and groundbreaking routines like “Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television,” died in Santa Monica, Calif., on Sunday, according to his publicist, Jeff Abraham. He was 71.
Work warning, video contains language not for all audiences, it is George Carlin after all
7 words you can say on television:
“Goodbye George, you will be truly missed!”
