George Carlin – “A Modern Man” (2005)

March 16, 2011 at 6:10 pm (Comedy, George Carlin, Life & Politics, Poetry & Literature)

I’m a modern man, a man for the millennium. Digital and smoke free. A diversified multi-cultural, post-modern deconstruction that is anatomically and ecologically incorrect. I’ve been up linked and downloaded, I’ve been inputted and outsourced, I know the upside of downsizing, I know the downside of upgrading. I’m a high-tech low-life. A cutting edge, state-of-the-art bi-coastal multi-tasker and I can give you a gigabyte in a nanosecond!

I’m new wave, but I’m old school and my inner child is outward bound. I’m a hot-wired, heat seeking, warm-hearted cool customer, voice activated and bio-degradable. I interface with my database, my database is in cyberspace, so I’m interactive, I’m hyperactive and from time to time I’m radioactive. Read the rest of this entry »

George Carlin – (TV -1967)

November 22, 2008 at 10:34 am (Comedy, George Carlin)

From Feb. 25, 1967…George was still clean-cut and “safe” at this point. Not sure what TV show this was taken from.

George Carlin – “The Mike Douglas Show” (1972 – Part 2)

August 16, 2008 at 1:21 pm (Comedy, George Carlin)

This is the remainder of George Carlin’s appearance on “The Mike Douglas Show” on Feb. 18, 1972, w/ weeklong co-hosts John Lennon & Yoko Ono. This is the interview portion of his segment.  
George’s appearance was on the last of the 5 days. When asked about it, George said he didn’t even recall being on the show that week. “Too many good drugs back then.”
You’ll notice that George was much more laid-back in that time – in his act & as an interviewee – than he was in later life.

George Carlin – “The Mike Douglas Show” (1972 – Part 1)

August 15, 2008 at 1:48 am (Comedy, George Carlin)

George Carlin appearing on the 5th day of the week that John & Yoko co-hosted “The Mike Douglas Show” – he performs “New York Voices,” “Hair Piece,” “Sharing a Swallow” and “The Hippy Dippy Weatherman.”
His act was much more genteel then it was by the late-80s, when he started to go in a more angry, political direction with his comedy.   
This is part one – the next installment is the interview portion.

George Carlin – “What’s My Line” (1969)

August 13, 2008 at 11:23 pm (Comedy, George Carlin)

George appearing on “What’s My Line.” This is right before he grew his hair & started doing his now-famous edgier comedy – he was still a straight, nightclub comedian at this point. Pretty funny to see him looking so clean cut.
