Missing George Carlin

By Steve Outing

I let most celebrity deaths pass without commenting on them, because they usually don’t hit me. I’ve never been much into celebrity worship. But I do feel the loss of George Carlin. He’s among the select few who I am comfortable using the term “comic genius.” I’ll miss his irreverent and smart brand of humor.

Here’s one of my favorite stand-up routines from Carlin, about religion. It will offend lots of people, no doubt, but to me it’s f***ing hilarious. …

Farewell, George Carlin, from a fellow sun worshiper.

    Thanks for this post. I’m a Christian and a life-long Carlin fan as well, and I did my own little tribute to the man, from a similar-but-different perspective. Thought you might be interested.

    Grace and Peace,
    Parables of a Prodigal World

    This is terrible news. I guess only few Germans know him but Shimi and I will miss him very much. We just listened to one of his shows in the car yesterday. Sad! Just as bad as Bill Hicks’ death. Rest in peace – We will continue laughing at your jokes!
