GUEST,Hummer Obit: George Carlin (May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008) (79* d) RE: Obit: George Carlin 26 Jun 08

This is great news, what SNL is doing as a tribute! Thanks for posting that information. I hadn't heard it, and I never watch the program any more. I'll definitely tune in on Saturday AND set the Tivo up for it!

I finally got a little sassy over on the Talkin White Talkin Black thread, at all the racial absurdity surrounding the presidential race this year. Made me immediately flash on another deeply subversive comedian from the Carlin school, Dave Chapelle.

I can't think of any comics left standing, except Chapelle, who are as astoundingly good at subversive comedy as Carlin and Pryor were.

And if any of you know someone who does subversive comedy like they do I haven't thought or heard of--give it up to the rest of us, here and now!

All this absurdly self-censorial, didactic, politically reverential talk surrounding the US elections has me down!
