Unfortunately that should be -1.

We lost one of this worlds greatest comedians today. I gotta go buy some of his old CD's now.

Another person dies and I have never heard of them.  I really need to get out more-or stay in more.  Whichever it is.

I don't mean to be rude but don't you think it's kinda weird that a lot of famous people are dying lately?

Tim Russert
Stan Winston
Sydney Pollack
Bo Diddley
Jim McKay (of ABC's Wide World of Sports)
George Carlin

All of them died in period of one month.

Rest in peace....

I want Cheech and Chong to do his eulogy.

I remember George when he started........short hair, conservative clothing and a tie............Somewhat similar to Willy Nelson's first try at fame.

They both must have said, "flip this, I'm just gonna be myself"..............

Good on ya George!

I didn't realize he was so old.

I bet if he had had a telephone booth that took him back in time he'd have told his younger self not to do drugs or smoke so much...

I disagree. He probably would have told himself to do MORE. On top of which, that's totally retarded. If he's dead, he's NOW going to build a time machine and go back? I'd be like "Dude, Zombie Purge is telling me to do more drugs!" and totally run away.
Totally.

I too held his humour in the upper echelons of comedy genius. I mean, seriously... putting a humidifier and a dehumidifier in the same room and letting them fight it out? Genius!

71 isn't exactly young so I don't really see your point.  He had a good long life enjoying himself.   I suppose he coulda lived a bit longer perhaps if he lived a clean and healthy life but who knows if he woulda been crapping and pissing himself in the post 71 years.  I can guarantee you he woulda said Fuck That!

I remember hearing one of his monologues on Catholic School and was glad I didn't go to Catholic school. Man, if he could have hung on for another 10 years he would have given Celine Dion a run at the money in Vegas. RIP George and Fuc<'em if they can't take a joke. nod icon_lol crybaby

And then he would have told his older self to fuck off.

I don't even recognize him looking like this. Other than the voice it seems like a different person.

Edit to add that we should not forget it was Lenny Bruce who blazed the path for comedians to break out of this clean cut look to say whatever the fuck they wanted to say.

Just got in to work and was notified of his passing. He was one of my favorite comedians. He managed to elevate cuss words into social commentary and insightful comedy. He will be missed. Rest in peace, Mr. Carlin.

edited to add: shit. fuck. death sucks.

I always loved his bit about driving: Everyone who drives faster than you do is a maniac, and everyone who drives slower than you do is an idiot.

Truer words have never been spoken!

I used to listen to his comedy tapes over and over in high school, and caught his HBO specials whenever I could. Definitely a comedic legend.

I have always been a huge fan of his and would list him as my favorite comic of all time (besides Spider Man slywink ).  I used to listen to his tapes over and over and over again and knew them all by heart.

Goodbye George. Thanks for all the foul mouthed belly laughs ya gave me. If I saw him on tv Id always stop and listen a while. He was always funny. I remember being so surprised when  I saw him on Thomas the Tank Engine as Conductor. Just didn't think Carlin fit that part smile

I was crushed upon hearing the news this morning. This was one of my first childhood/entertainment idols. This is probably my first devasting "star" loss from my youth that I've had to experience. I'm going to attempt to handle it today by enjoying whatever videos I can find (thank you for the YouTube links).
