The National Comedy Center has assembled an all-star crew of comedians to pay tribute to the late great George Carlin tonight for his birthday. Carlin, born May 12, 1937, died in 2008.
Coming together for a livestream of “Laughing Matters: Carlin’s Legacy,” count on Tim Allen, Judd Apatow, Lewis Black, Elayne Boosler, Kelly Carlin, Bill Engvall, Judah Friedlander, Judy Gold, Kathy Griffin, Penn Jillette, Maz Jobrani, Norman Lear, Richard Lewis, George Lopez, Sebastian Maniscalco, Mark Normand, Jim Norton, Russell Peters, Colin Quinn, Brian Regan, Alex Winter, Steven Wright and Alan Zweibel. This special event will live stream at 8 pm ET/5 pm PT at ComedyCenter.org/Carlin with a simulcast via Facebook Live on the National Comedy Center Facebook page.
The National Comedy Center will also be adding exclusive video content and rare archival material from its George Carlin exhibit and archives to its new National Comedy Center Anywhere online platform, along with highlights from past National Comedy Center Dialogues on Carlin’s career. Most of this content has never before been seen outside of the National Comedy Center museum.
Here’s an interview Carlin did with Larry King on CNN back in 1990 that still holds up as amazing 30 years later. Enjoy!
