I didn't always agree with his politics, but I always thought he was funny. I remember watching George Carlin on the Tonight show back in the 60s'.
Yeah, I'm that old!
I was lucky enough to get one last chance to see him perform in NJ just a couple of weeks before he died. (Note: I could have said "passed" or some other euphemism for death, but if you knew any of George Carlins material, you knew that he hated bullshit expressions for day to day realities)
My son and I got lost on the way to the town he was playing in, and wound up in PA. I got so frustrated that I almost turned around and went home.
I'm glad I didn't.
