“You’re all going to die…”

George Carlin

So began one George Carlin’s famous routines on a simple theme. Unfortunately, comedian George Carlin was inconvenienced by a recent turn of events, in which he ‘got dead’.

George Carlin was born in New York City in May of 1937. Raised by his mother from the age of 2, his upbringing in the city was occasionally evident in his jokes.  After attending various schools, he had a stint in the US Air Force, in which he was labeled an “unproductive airmen”.  Following his discharge from the Air Force, Carlin got into radio and moved to Hollywood, California.  Shortly there after, he began to appear on variety shows such as The Ed Sullivan Show and The Tonight Show.
