“In America, anyone can become president. That’s the problem.”
Irreverent US comedian George Carlin, who became known as a voice of the 1970s counterculture and was one of the country’s best known funny men, died on Sunday aged 71
“I don’t want to go around describing myself as a ‘groundbreaker’ or a ‘difference-maker’ because I’m not and I wasn’t,” he said. “But I contributed to people who were saying things that weren’t supposed to be said.”
“I think it is the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately.”
Thankfully you spawned a new generation of artists saying the things that aren’t supposed to be said, but you’ll be missed George.
