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?
About the Author
Hi, I'm Pete Rizzo, early morning elixir for your weekends. I love music and I love talking about it. I grew up listening to bands like Rush (best band on the planet!), Van Halen (Diamond Dave all the way), AC/DC (Bon rules!) and Genesis (the Gabriel years). But my true love is progressive rock and heavy metal. The louder, crunchier, more bombastic and self-indulgent, the better! When I’m not on the air, I’m either training in martial arts, deciding which tattoo I should get next, reading a good book (I still enjoy turning actual pages), or my wife and I are planning our next big travel excursion. I’m on every Saturday and Sunday morning. You can also follow me on on Twitter @PeteRizzoWBAB. I’d love to hear from you.
