In this 1975 photo originally released by NBC, comedian George Carlin is shown in a promotional photo for NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” Carlin, 71, whose staunch defense of free speech in his most famous routine “Seven Words You Can Never Say On Television” led to a key Supreme Court ruling on obscenity, died Sunday June 22, 2008. He went into St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica on Sunday complaining of chest pain and died later that evening, said his publicist, Jeff Abraham. Carlin served as host of the “Saturday Night Live” debut in 1975. (AP Photo/NBC) ** NO SALES ** ORG XMIT: NYET159

Thank You Everyone, Drive Safely, Good Night!

On March 3, 2018, I exited 46 years of standup on a standing ovation (the first ever in that venue, the promoter told me. Nice!) Thank you everyone for your support all these years. Thank you for being there and sharing laughter, joy, hardship, sadness, and ultimately, life. I will be writing my books now, and I hope when they are ready we’ll all meet again somewhere down the road. And I truly hope I was able to give you all you gave to me all those years. Wishing you and yours the best for joy, health and happiness.

Be well, and take care of each other. Thanks so much for coming out. Good night!
