In my opinion, George Carlin’s peak was a few years before my time. Had I been born about 10 years earlier I think he would have been a far greater influence on me than he was.
But that doesn’t mean I was not aware of and didn’t appreciate what he did… His wry observations and inflammatory wit always made you feel that you were doing something naughty just by listening to him.
I think it was his views on religion that I always looked forward to the most. He was definitely a “no holds barred” kind of person on all topics, but I appreciated it in this sphere especially.
Better than anyone alive now, George knows the truth – RIP
