George Carlin Dies: Comedian George Carlin Wins Grammy Awards and Guests On Johnny Carson Over 100 Times

At the age of 71, George Carlin died Sunday night. He will be remembered by many for his incredible humor. George Carlin had many, many different popular comedy pieces that the world will never forget. His work will live on for a very long time.

George Carlin was a favorite guest on the Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show and appeared on the show a 135 times. Two of George Carlin’s comedy albums won Grammy Awards.

We will all miss him greatly. He was one of my favorite comedians of all time. There is just something about his humor that really gets you to think.

One of my favorite things about George Carlin’s work is that he always got me to thinking. For example, he has a piece where he talks about airplanes. Why do we say that we are getting ON an airplane when actuality we are getting into the airplane?
