George Carlin died on June 22, 2008.
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.
To celebrate his life all this week we are hosting ‘George Carlin Week’.
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.
