This really saddens me. He was one of the funniest comedians of all time.

I was shocked myself. I got to see him perform a few times over the last few years. RIP

So sad to hear this news, although I realized he was on borrowed time (following multiple heart attacks). I had the pleasure of seeing George Carlin live twice, and he was a comic genius... made me laugh so hard, my cheeks hurt for days. RIP George.

This is truly shocking. He was my all time favorite comedian. He had some very interesting point of views and was always so funny. I also had the pleasure of seeing him live a couple years ago and he was great. RIP George, you will be missed.

I have such great respect for this talented man.
He never seemed quite the same after his wife died.
Rest now, Mr. Carlin.

I agree BlueWillow, he became very sullen after she passed away and it made me sad. I'm sure they are together now yucking it up.

I also had the pleasure of seeing him live, and still remember how much my abdominal muscles hurt the next morning.

Here's hoping he's enjoying his perpetual free ride on a heavenly telephone dial ...

Default George Carlin Died

I heard this this morning. I never really liked him that much but a lot of people did. Sorry to hear of his passing.

Wow. Sorry to hear that as well, and I never liked his work at all, but I'm sure his loved ones could use our thoughts and prayers. Sad.
