(Warning- Explicit material may be included)
George Denis Patrick Carlin (May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008) was an American comedian, writer, social critic, and actor who won five Grammy Awards for his comedy albums. Carlin was noted for his black humor as well as his thoughts on politics, the English language, psychology, religion, and various taboo subjects. Carlin and his "Seven dirty words" comedy routine were central to the 1978 U.S. Supreme Court case F.C.C. v. Pacifica Foundation, in which a 5–4 decision by the justices affirmed the government's power to regulate indecent material on the public airwaves. One newspaper called Carlin "the dean of counterculture comedians
So here's good ole' George back in the 60's.
His humor only got more in depth and direct as time goes on. Here he is performing in the 80's. (WARNING-OFFENSIVE LANGUAGE)
He's known for speaking his mind, even when it wasn't popular. Many loved George Carlin and many hated him for his brand of humor. He had many struggles throughout his life that weren't always positive. Find out more on his life here.
Some of his material I didn't feel comfortable sharing(not on public website), but I think I managed to a couple of good clips. I apologize here if you are offended. I think he intended that many would be personally. Just to get them to look at some cold, hard truths and fallacies.
I think he is an amazing comedian and speaker to say the least. What do you think? Love him or hate him, comment below and share your thoughts!
