Growing up in New York City, George Carlin was always the class clown. He went on to become one of the greatest comedians of all time, with appeal that spans generations. His brand of provocative sociopolitical commentary and scathing comic style has brought him four Grammy AwardsÂ®, most recently in 2002. Carlin holds the distinct honor of being the first ever host of NBC's Saturday Night Live, and has starred in 12 HBO specials and many blockbuster films. He continues to perform to sold-out audiences at venues across the country.
