The Best of George Carlin: Exposing our government and fall of humanity one joke at a time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6_zwB6GLpo4


Rest in Peace.

Paul Mooney and Richard Pryor are my favorites, but today I realized that Carlin brings something to the table (his uncanny view of society) that neither of these men do.

carlins the man, of all the artists in all fields like music/painting etc there are some greater, but no one improved with age like GC. This is due to constant practice and reinventing his material. The older he got the better he got, that's the best compliment i can give him. probly had a lot to do with him overcoming his drug problem. thx for starting this, i was gonna put in one of my fav but ill just embed your link cuz its an hour, probably has it in there...though honestly his top ten is more than an hour of material... like i said if he's not the GOAT he's way more prolific than any other comedian. dude went on the road all year every year, refining and editing with every show based on joke performance, and at the end did a special, then threw it out started over. Guy had the greatest attitude about language too, really means a lot to literacy minded folks in the long run rip.

True. His overall material is second to none. I see where Bill Maher might've gotten the majority of his stuff.

And he did it way before it was cool to challenge everything in your material.

His cameo in Dogma was pretty awesome too.

I think Carlin got even better in the '90s. stuff like Jammin' in New York, Complaints and Grievances and You Are All Diseased are all essential. to all comedians of substance he and Pryor are THE bible. after that, the closest you get is Bill Hicks.

young george busting out <-one of my favorite carlin bits, before he started preaching and taking himself all serious, which was awesome but it's also refreshing to just have a super talent being a pure entertainer without getting artistic and heavy.

fucking love wonderful wino here's the original when Carlin was a 20 something square, still funny. I think carlin loves music and wanted to goof around so he could mess around with songwriting.
