    George Carlin R.I.P

    Comedian George Carlin dies at 71

    Anti-Establishment icon gained fame with his ‘Seven Dirty Words’ routine

    Known for his edgy, provocative material, George Carlin achieved status as an anti-Establishment icon in the 1970s with stand-up bits full of drug references and a routine called “Seven Words You Can Never Say On Television.”

    SANTA MONICA, Calif. - George Carlin, the dean of counterculture comedians whose biting insights on life and language were immortalized in his “Seven Words You Can Never Say On TV” routine, died of heart failure Sunday. He was 71.
    Carlin went into a Santa Monica hospital Sunday afternoon complaining of chest pain and died later that evening, said his publicist, Jeff Abraham.
    Carlin, who had a history of heart trouble, performed as recently as last weekend at the Orleans Casino and Hotel in Las Vegas. It was announced Tuesday that Carlin was being awarded the 11th annual Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.

    On TV I enjoyed him.

    Live in Las Vegas, I was very disappointed.

    Very dull. Stale.


    Anyway, R.I.P.
