George Carlin was one of my favorite comedians. Although I never saw him perform live, I’ve enjoyed many of his HBO specials as well as his books Napalm and Silly Putty and When Will Jesus Bring The Pork Chops.
I loved how much he loved language and to stimulate the thinking of his audience. He didn’t talk down to those assembled before him yet he was ready, willing and able to mix silliness and bawdiness with his cerebral, cultural commentary.
Although his bit on religion being bullshit is really funny and his thoughts on pro-lifers being anti-women is spot on, nothing showcases his skill at making folks think while laughing like his rant on the 10 Commandments.Vodpod videos no longer available.
Man I’m going to miss that guy.
