Game, Set, Match   4 comments

One of my rare family-unfriendly posts.

The only appropriate way for me to deal with the death of my favorite comedic giant is with comedy.  For a more serious look at the career of George Carlin, see Matthew Caverhill.

George had a great skit comparing himself to Richard Pryor… I found the direct quote on wikipedia:

“An update on the comedian health sweepstakes. I currently lead Richard Pryor in heart attacks 2 to 1. But Richard still leads me 1 to nothing in burning yourself up. See, it happened like this. First Richard had a heart attack. Then I had a heart attack. Then Richard burned himself up… and I said, ‘Fuck that. I’m having another heart attack!’

Richard Pryor died three years ago, from a heart attack. George joined him yesterday. Looks like he takes the game, 3-2.

Rest well, you cantankerous old fart.
