George Carlin, the Grammy-Award winning standup comedian and actor who was hailed for his irreverent social commentary, poignant observations of the absurdities of everyday life and language, and groundbreaking routines like "Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television," died in Santa Monica, Calif., on Sunday, according to his publicist, Jeff Abraham. He was 71.
George Carlin, Splenetic Comedian, Dies at 71
There is so much I want to say, and so little words with which to say them. George Carlin was more than simply a comedian for me. His struggle to overcome addiction, and his caustic and blunt humor was a balm during my time of trial and tribulation. The bastard could have stuck around a few more years. We truly lost a great one today.
