George Carlin

George Carlin
Born: May 12, 1937
Died: June 22, 2008 (age 71)

George Carlin was a Grammy-winning stand-up comedian, actor, and author noted for his political and dark humor. Carlin’s “Seven Dirty Words” comedy routine was central to the 1978 U.S. Supreme Court case F.C.C. v. Pacifica Foundation, in which the judges ruled in favor of the government, granting it the right to regulate Carlin’s act on the TV and radio.

From 1963 to 2008, George Carlin had thirteen HBO comedy specials, starred in his own sitcom The George Carlin Show, wrote five books, and released twenty-three albums. He appeared in sixteen movies, including Car Wash (1976), Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989), Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey (1991), Dogma (1999), and Jersey Girl (2004). He was also the first host of Saturday Night Live, which debuted in 1975.

On June 22, 2008, Carlin complained of chest pain and went to St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica, California. Carlin died of heart failure at the age of 71. He had a history of heart attacks, beginning in the late 1970s.

On a Paunch note, without George Carlin, there would probably not be a Paunch Stevenson Show. Our cynical wit we learned from the master.
