We are true blood comedy fans and happy that one of the most viewed videos from the Grintage archive is this classic clip from one our favorite comedians ever.
Please welcome on the stage the one and only Mr. George Denis Patrick Carlin. And you’ve guessed it from his middle names – the man was born into a Catholic Irish family in New York.
The late great George Carlin was beyond compare and acclaimed by comedians being up there – with Richard Prior – as the greatest stand up comedian of all time. Sadly he passed away in June 2008 aged 71. But thanks to You Tube his brilliant stage performances live on.
In 2004 Carlin was placed second on the Top 10 US Comedians ever and in 2008 he was posthumously awarded the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.
Often the best comedy lies in the truth! Have a watch (leave yourself some time to enjoy the 10 minute clip) and admire George’s brilliant style of delivery and his oh so insightful views on religion today. This is from his final HBO special It’s Bad for Ya filmed less than four months before his death.
