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 »
From Feb. 25, 1967…George was still clean-cut and “safe” at this point. Not sure what TV show this was taken from.
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.
Another 1972 appearance on Johnny Carson from May 2, 1972…
George again on “The Mike Douglas Show” from May 2, 1975 doing his routine on God.
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.
This is part 2 of George’s Feb. 29, 1972 appearance on Johnny Carson. He does “The Best of the News” with Flip Wilson.
Eleven days after his appearance on “The Mike Douglas Show,” he appears on Johnny Carson (Feb. 29, 1972). This portion is the interview segment – part 2 will include a comedy bit with Flip Wilson.
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.
George interviewed on “Dennis Miller Live” from June 1, 2001 talking about advertising & the gullibility of American people…
