From the Hippie Dippy Weatherman to Social Critic, George Carlin set the bar high for comedians who have something to day. His cutting edge routine: ‘Seven words you can never say on television’ was the focus of a Supreme Court decision finding the difference between indecent versus obscene.
His comedy credits include appearances on Ed Sullivan, Johnny Carson, and Saturday Night Live. He created beloved character Rufus in the movie Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Mr. Conductor on the children’s show, Shiny Time Station.
Carlin wrote books, made albums and won awards. But more than that he helped us look at ourselves and laugh.
