George Carlin was iconic in the comedy community. He made profanity funny, and parents uncomfortable around their children. Carlin was known for his “seven words you can’t say on television”.
He passed away last night just before 6PM (PST) of heart failure.
With more than 20 comedy albums, 14 HBO specials, plenty of TV and movie roles, and three best-selling books (When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?, Three Times Carlin: An Orgy of George, Brain Droppings), Carlin was a comedy God. Last year, he celebrated his 50th year in show business, and he had just finished another HBO special, “It’s Bad for Ya.”
Farewell George, I hope you get to swear in heaven.
