23 june 08: George Carlin


The well known comedian George Carlin died. This is a shocking news and people will laugh less without him.

George Carlin, the Grammy-Award winning standup comedian and actor who was hailed for his irreverent social commentary, poignant observations of the absurdities of everyday life and language, and groundbreaking routines like "Seven Words You Can Never Use on Television," died in Los Angeles on Sunday, according to his publicist, Jeff Abraham. He was 71. The cause of death was heart failure, according to Abraham. Carlin began his standup comedy act in the late 1950s and made his first television solo guest appearance on "The Merv Griffin Show" in 1965. At that time, he was primarily known for his clever wordplay and reminiscences of his Irish working-class upbringing in New York. Source:International Herald Tribune

I have as much authority as the Pope, I just don't have as many people who believe it.
