    Hahahaha holy shit. Gilbert is fucking crazy. I'm sure Carlin would had find this funny. I thought that Carlin was the angriest comic or all time, but Gilbert is probably even angrier.

    Carlin was dark near the end but Gilbert has no filter. Sort of the reason why Howard never has him on and Alfac uses someone else.

    Carlin was a genius with incredibly clever, black humor. Gilbert is just completely insane. I'm not even sure if it's a shtick anymore. Either way, he's doing it right; I start laughing just by seeing him.

    Carlin was a genius. Unfortunately, we have no one to replace his role as a comic bullshit detector. Carlin had a way of holding a mirror up to your face, telling you that you are even uglier inside, and then making you laugh about it.

    I saw Gilbert live about 20+ years ago and it was very similar to the performance above. He picked up two ashtrays from the table in the comedy club. The ashtrays were a round piece of black melamine. He proceeded to put two of them behind his head and called himself Mickey Mouse. Then proceeded down a path of what he would do to Mickey Mouse along with the "F... Mickey Mouse".

    I bet Gilbert did the whole Carlin stuff on the fly.

    I listen to Gilbert on Stern all the time from YouTube. That with Artie is some of the best radio I've ever heard.

    It's a shame he hasn't been in in over a year or more.

    I want to fuck your Reggie tits.

    Wow. Gilbert is nuts.

    Carlin was God. He would have approved.

    I agree. George was the man. There will never be anyone like him. Especially his last five or so shows were exceptional. Sometimes I wondered if I was watching a comedy special, or some kind of visionary pointing out all the things that are fucked up in the world. One of the few people who could make sense for an hour straight.

    The "modern man" bit was also nothing short of legendary, and he did all of that from the top of his head, as an, in his own words, old fuck.


    Hahaha that's so stupid, but so funny. Especially with his voice and demeanor. The guy is out of control.
    His last appearance was mellow, and he left before the news, which is by far the best part of a Gilbert visit.

    Carlin on "The Hollywood Palace" in 1966. Batman was the host. No need to scroll, just play. User Friendly post.

    This was the hardest I've laughed in months. Gilbert is a fucking GOD. That was fucking sick. People were clearly uncomfortable but he was killing so hard that they couldn't hold the laughs in. When he said "I wished I had killed Carlin" you can hear people literally screaming with laughter.

    Carlin is one of the reasons I stopped listening to Howard.

    Gilbert's act is hilarious, Carlin would have laughed his ass off.
