RIP RIPPER…. Comedy is such a Tragedy…

March 29, 2016

Greetings,

I’m sure many readers here are more than familiar with George Carlin. While one may not agree with everything he said, there was a certain edge to his comedy, almost like Lenny Bruce….

If you have not heard Lenny, give him a listen. When I heard Lenny, I understood forever that comedy is actually tragedy…in fact, are you aware of how many laugh makers died tragically and young?

Lenny pushed boundaries….

Just before died, at 40 in 1966 (the year I was born)…

It’s not comedy, as you will see….

 

And here is his astute student, friend and also mysteriously dead George Carlin….

A comedy of errors….so said Lenny….

So, please….think before you LOL

😉

    Lenny, Bill Hicks? Yeah, suspicious deaths there. George was old. He’d been blasting the elites for decades. I don’t think he was knocked off.

      George died within weeks or so of this interview I believe, which makes it, well, fishy-ish…

    He’s a hero of mine as are others of his ilk. I wrote this on him may be be of interest.
