GUEST,Texas Guest Obit: George Carlin (May 12, 1937 June 22, 2008) (79* d) RE: Obit: George Carlin 29 Jun 08


I've seen Carlin on HBO a lot in the last few days and I may have not given him enough credit in my earlier comment. Let me just say here that George Carlin was "The Comedian" of my generation. There have been a few great ones in my lifetime such as Richard Pryor, Lenny Bruce, Mort Sahl and maybe even Robin Williams, but no one has come close to the broad expanse of talent that George Carlin exhibited - he was a "master," simply a master. An earlier comment stated that we should have had him for ten more years or so - I could not agree more. BTW - I was very glad to read that George mentioned Lewis Black in an interview - Lewis Black is my current "fave rave" of comedians. RIP George Carlin, you were loved and respected on a grand scale.
