RIP: George Carlin

By now, everyone in the world knows that comedian/actor/author George Carlin has passed away due to heart failure. Genre fans will remember his role in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989), but he will really be rememberd for so much more; particularly for all the laughs and smiles he brought to people’s faces. I keep a copy of his book Brain Droppings handy because it’s so damn funny. He will be missed…

  1. Yes he will. I remember watching one of his specials for the first time in the mid-80’s. It was late and we had company staying at my parent’s house, I was laughing so hard I though I was going to wake them. He was hilarious.

  2. I’m glad I got to see him in DC a few years back.

    Though, considering what’s happened to 66.7% of the comedians my wife and I have seen over the last 7 years (George Carlin and Mitch Hedberg), I’m really worried about Lewis Black now.
