R.I.P. George Carlin

George Carlin, a famous comedian, died on June 22, 2008, at the age of 71. It was at St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica about 6 pm due to heart failure. He was admitted in the afternoon for chest pains.


He was one of my favorite comedians, an idol along with Denis Leary. His controversial themes and use of what we would consider "naughty words" brought some personality to comedy. Crude at times, maybe, but he was also one that could think of many things to say off of the top of his head. Unrehearsed and unrestricted, uncensored and underrated, understandable and unforgettable….that’s what George Carlin was.

A man of his art…and now dead. Hopefully someone will pick up where he left off, but I doubt anyone will match up with such a comedian.
