R.I.P George Carlin

Im watchin the news and and i am very sad to say that george carlin has just passed away due to heart failiure
if you dont know who he is go on youtube and watch some of his standup he is one halarious comedian who was afraid of nothing, he had the whole world and everyone in it figured out, he is the most legendary comedian ever. I remeber the first time i saw his standup and I was laughing so hard I cried, not only is it funny but it is the most amazing insight on everyhting.

I just saw it on MSN.com, all I saw was "George Carlin dead at 71" and I just went completely numb.

I'll be honest with you, I have never ever shed a tear for any celebrity, ever. But when I saw this I couldn't help but too. George Carlin is the greatest stand-up comedian in the history of stand-up, BAR NONE. I know it's common to say after a celebrity dies but these words couldn't be further from the truth. Although he did make us laugh histarically and to tears, he really wasn't a comedian, but a philosopher.

People always compared him to Bill Hicks, only there's one thing that seperates them both, Carlin covered EVERYTHING. While I love Bill Hicks as well and he as well as a philosopher, he was a one trick pony, Carlin's material was just uncomparable.

I honestly can't believe this. I knew the day would come soon, to quote George is surely was an "old ****", I guess I never prepared for it. ****, this sucks, it just sucks.

In all honesty George Carlin impacted my ways of thinking very much so. Whether it was golf, religion, politics, people who wear too much cologne, guys that wear their baseball caps backwards, and the list could go on forever. To me it wasn't material, but just straight up life.

Rest in peace George.

This is really sad news. I was kinda close to tears when I heard this but my brother was in the same room and I didnt really want to break down in front of him. I wonder what comedian will pick up where he left off.

The only one that can even come close is Lewis Black, and while I love Lewis he's nowhere near the level of Carlin. Much like Bill Hicks, Lewis Black is a one trick pony, while hilarious yes, he's no Carlin.
