As one of America's most pre-emineny comedians, with 50 years worth of material and appearances on the international comedy circuit, George Carlin saw it all and made fun of most of it...
...Sparing no detail, Carlin describes his life and career, discussing his own battle with substance abuse, his turbulent relationship with his family, and the unique worldview that informed so much of his standup.
AUDIO NOTE: A later, abridged audio version of this book was released read by Patrick Carlin, George's brother. This is a wholly different and unabridged version.

Read information about the authorGeorge Denis Patrick Carlin was a Grammy-winning American stand-up comedian, actor, author, and philosopher.
Carlin was especially noted for his political and black humor and his observations on language, psychology, and religion along with many taboo subjects. Carlin and his "Seven Dirty Words" comedy routine were central to the 1978 U.S. Supreme Court case F.C.C. v. Pacifica Foundation, in which a narrow 5-4 decision by the justices affirmed the government's right to regulate Carlin's act on the public airwaves.
Carlin's mid-2000s stand-up routines focused on the flaws in modern-day America. He often took on contemporary political issues in the United States and satirized the excesses of American culture.
A disciple of Lenny Bruce, he placed second on the Comedy Central cable television network list of the 10 greatest stand-up comedians, ahead of Bruce and behind Richard Pryor. He was a frequent performer and guest host on The Tonight Show during the three-decade Johnny Carson era, and was also the first person to host Saturday Night Live.
