If you ever wanted to see what a place of George Carlin’s legendary stuff looks like, all it will take now is a roughly seven-hour drive deep into upstate new York to see it.

Thanks goes to his daughter Kelly, who is donating a bunch of old set lists, tickets and just about anything in between to the National Comedy Center in Jamestown, New York.

But the artifacts I would love to see are the scrapbooks where he worked on his landmark material. Among his classics,….

,…his perspective on euphemisms,…

,…the funny differences between cats and dogs,…

,…his legendary ‘seven dirty words’,…

,…and one of his (I believe) most amazing later bits on the 10 Commandments.

How about you? What is your favorite George Carlin bit?
