George Carlin is the King of Comedians as far as I’m concerned. He’s always hilarious. I love watching old clips and reading his books. His death was a huge loss to the world and came far too early. It certainly doesn’t hurt that he shared my lack of respect for religion.
I see no reason to name comedians I can’t stand and give them attention, but purely physical comedy leaves me cold, as does anything that involves picking on members of the audience.
“Watch all the topsoil go down the Mississippi. Transport your children in baskets on top of your SUV deathmobiles. Keep playing with your cute and cuddly pal, the atom. Press your nose against the TV screen for even more educational 3rd Rock From The Sun enjoyment. Use plentiful gasoline to burn book- readers at the stake. Don’t eat anything but sugared pork lard. Do whatever you want.”
