Voted Comedy Central's Top 10 Comedian
How God Became GOD (Richard Smoley)
George Carlin (1937-2008) was an American provocateur, stand-up comedian, actor, author, and incisive social critic.

He was noted for his black comedy and reflections on American life, the English language, religion, psychology, and various taboo subjects.

He and his "seven dirty words" comedy routine were central to the 1978 U.S. Supreme Court case F.C.C. vs. Pacifica Foundation, in which a 5-4 decision affirmed the government's power to regulate indecent material on the public airwaves.

Carlin is widely regarded as one of the most important and influential stand-up comics.

How dare ye talketh back to Us!
One newspaper called him "the dean of counterculture comedians" (George Carlin, counterculture comedians' dean, dies, The Plain Dealer, Cleveland, Ohio).

In April 2004, he placed second on the Comedy Central list of "Top 10 Comedians of US Audiences."
The first of Carlin's 14 stand-up HBO comedy specials was filmed in 1977. From then on, Carlin's routines focused on sociocultural criticism satirizing the excesses of American culture. More
