Comedian George Carlin Passes on:
Comedian George Carlin has left the stage officially. On Monday, June 23, 2008 it was reported that Mr. Carlin had heart failure shortly after checking into the hospital complaining of chest pain. There was nothing that could be done to save him.
Perhaps one of the most outstanding comedians of all time, George Carlin appeared on The Tonight Show over 150 times, wrote 2 books, and located the boundaries of comedy only to cross them blazingly. I had the pleasure of seeing him live in Atlantic City. The only comedian I could ever compare him to, George Burns, has already joined his wife Gracie passing on several years ago at the age of 91. The stage is now empty.
George's most famous skit was "The Seven Words You Can't Say on TV". It actually made the FCC stand up and take notice. What an inspiration he was!
We will miss you George! Keep them laughing up there!
George Carlin - Died Monday, June 23, 2008- Age:71 (1937-2008).
