Louis CK on George Carlin

In March, 2010, the NY Public Library hosted a tribute to George Carlin two years after his death. The event coincided with the publication of the last thing Carlin wrote, a semi-autobiography with Tony Hendra called "Last Words." One of the people who spoke that night was Louis CK, who remembered how Carlin had inspired him to develop new material and a whole new outlook on comedy...


The NYPL's entire Carlin tribute is here.

I had three conversations with Tony Hendra about George Carlin and their "Lost Words" book. You can listen to them here.
