George Carlin

June 24, 2008 | By | No Comments

It takes a lot to shock me these days.  With everything that goes on in the world, and how quickly we hear about it, I am rarely surprised by anything.  Unfortunately, I was shocked yesterday morning when I went to CNN.com and saw that George Carlin had died.  It still seems weird.

I first saw George Carlin on “The Tonight Show” in the early 80’s.  He was doing his bit about “a place for my stuff.”  I had never seen anyone so manic and funny at the same time.  Like most people, I immediately became a fan.  The main thing I liked about George Carlin was his authenticity.  He was never phoney and he was never “cute.”  I’m sure gonna miss that.

Here is a clip of George Carlin on “The Tonight Show” in 1972.  Nobody could interview like Johnny Carson.
