Now in paperback, this posthumous work by an American classic used to be a fitting last book, an instant bestseller, and an enormous luck!
One of the undisputed heavyweight champions of American comedy, with nineteen appearances at the Johnny Carson display, 13 HBO specials, 5 Grammys, and a essential Supreme Court battle over censorship below his belt, George Carlin saw all of it all over his ordinary fifty-year career, and made a laugh of such a lot of it. Last Words is the tale of the person at the back of probably the most such a lot seminal comedy of the last part century, mixing his signature acerbic humor with never-before-told stories from his own life, together with encounters with a Who’s Who of Nineteen Seventies celebrity—from Lenny Bruce to Hugh Hefner—and the origins of a few of his such a lot famous standup routines. Carlin’s early conflicts, his long struggle with substance abuse, his turbulent relationships together with his circle of relatives, and his triumphs over catastrophic setbacks all fueled the original comedic worldview he dropped at the stage. From the heights of stardom to the low points few knew about, Last Words is told with the similar razor-sharp wit and unblinking honesty that made Carlin probably the most easiest-loved comedians in American history.
