    So I'm on a free 30 day sub for sirius right now and switched over to the George Carlin channel. It's 24/7 Carlin. I have to say that it had me laughing for several hours. What a great mind.

    He was really good for most of his career. The last five years or so sucked. He was just a bitter dude that had no jokes.

    You know you're right. I saw him do live shows twice. He was so funny the first time. The second time I brought my parents to see him and I remember leaving the theater thinking he was just SO angry.
    But here is a clip I heard on the sirius channel which looks fairly recent for him and it had me laughing. Th first part reminds me very much of coworker who prattles on way too long about minutia:

    Pryor in concert was not fun or funny in my opinion. Great in the movies with Gene Wilder.

    oddly enough on this clip he uses the phrase," blow it out your ass" and on the sirius clip he says "shut the fuck up" which I think works way better with the clip. I can't find the clip with the "shut the fuck up" in it. Funny how just changing the wording a little bit makes it better.

    Stern related because it makes you realize how unfunny Howard is.

    He could be really funny, but he was the biggest hypocrite out there.


    He went on Art Bell's program one time for an extended interview, talks about how people are stupid, and yet he owed the IRS tons of money for being stupid and that was why he had to work so much at that age. He also talks about Americans being stupid, unhealthy and materialistic, and then goes right into hawking some "Best of George Carlin CD Gift Box", and then dies of a heart attack. He should have died younger before he became a bitter old hypocritical hippie.




    At least Art Bell can make fun of himself:

    Gary and Howard made up for passing on George Carlin as a guest by getting his brother Patrick to call in a few years ago.
