He is not really a contemporary, but I truly miss George Carlin. I can only try to imagine what he would say about politics today, but I am sure it would be hilarious and right on.

since "contemporary" limits age selection:

1. Gilda Radner.
2. John Candy.
3. Robin Williams.
4. Richard Pryor (stretch).
5. Sam Kinison.

we like to laugh, and these still get the job done with the same routine.

I would have to say none, In the field of music if I liked the song I own it and will listen. I have not found an actor that was that interesting or that good. Recently I've been watching some old movies and thought why did I ever think this was good. Times and perspective change.

Like katharsis, George Carlin will be mist, difficult to replace a good comedian.

Wait, I thought Julia Child died at age 91, that’s too early?
