A great presenter RIP – George Carlin

Rowan Manahan made a post that I missed hearing on the news.  George Carlin, comedian and hilarious thinker, died from a heart attack.  Rowan’s A great presenter RIP has some great comments and a You Tube clip of Carlin’s famous STUFF bit. 

I saw him perform live twice.  One of the things I loved about his comedy is that he never takes the current way of thinking seriously.   He always challenged the status quo.  His presence will be missed.

  1. I never saw George perform live, I was privileged to see Bill Hicks on his visit to Ireland in 1992. None of the other comics I have ever seen have made me think and question in the way those two did.

    I hope they’re having a good chat and a smoke together now …
