Legendary Comedian George Carlin Dies - AOL News



I can't believe how some people have commented about Carlin on YouTube. If you don't like the guy, then just don't say anything. Seems at least one person is posting his hateful comments on several videos posted.

He was a legend and will truly be missed. I want to watch the comedians this week pay tribute, as I'm sure they will. I'm still shocked and saddened

I remember seeing him on one late night talk show years ago where he did a routine where he didn't say a single word. It was hilarious. I'd love to see that again.

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe this.


this is so so heartbreakingly sad for me and the world will miss one of the greatest comedians out there who pushed the boundaries of comedy and didn't back down or conform to the rigid rules back then... Amazingly funny man...

I went to CNN and bam.. there's his face... what a shock!

Can't say I'll miss him.

Just the same, condolences to his family. This shit is getting ridiculous this year.

Terrible, terrible year in this regard and we're only just barely approaching half-way through it.

R.I.P. George.

Just to note, with ever increasing amounts of television and movies over the years, this trend will only accelerate. I imagine that there will be a point in the future where we see at least one semi-major/major celebrity death a day, if only because we have so many "celebrities" now.

I never laughed so hard as I did when I saw him at the Roxy in the late 70s. I was laughing so hard I couldn't breathe.

He did a very funny impression of Ed Sullivan in those years, and Ed Sullivan had died recently. Someone in the audience kept yelling "Ed Sullivan!" So George put his mic down and lay across his stool, dead. It brought the house down. That was just one of the things that made my stomach muscles hurt that night.

George was my favorite comedian of all time. Nobody will ever say things like George did. He was truly an original. I can't say I'm shocked though because his health wasn't the greatest the past few years.

RIP George
