GEORGE CARLIN: IT'S BAD FOR YA
George Carlin was one of the greatest and most influential stand-up comedians of all time. He appeared on The Tonight Show more than 130 times, starred in an unprecedented 14 HBO Specials, hosted the first Saturday Night Live and penned three New York Times bestselling books. It’s Bad For Ya, Carlin’s Emmy-nominated 14th and final HBO special from March of 2008 features Carlin’s noted irreverent and unapologetic observations on topics ranging from death, religion, bureaucracy, patriotism, over-protected children and big business to the pungent examinations of modern language and the “decrepit state of the American culture.” Carlin once again comes up with an hour of brand new materials that not only makes you laugh, but makes you think. George Carlin will always remain part of the popular lexicons for his “Seven Dirty Worlds” routine, and as a comedian who was never afraid to challenge his audience. It’s Bad For Ya is Carlin’s final performance.
