That's kind of his schtick

For future reference: George Carlin always does dark comedy, so expect nothing different if he comes to your town.

I know when I'm "looking for a little uplifting," I go straight for some George Carlin. Yeah.

The person writing the review obviously had no idea of Carlin's m.o. My mom says Carlin went darker when his wife died, but he was never a basket of smiles, and that's why we like him. His past several HBO specials have been dark, but very, very funny. Like when he said, "You have a child fetish, and it's unhealthy." Followed by, "Yeah, I said it. Fuck the children." Though I hate little kids, too, so maybe I'm not that objective.

I've been a Carlin fan since the day he first appeared on the Steve Allen show and I hope he outlives me (a close race) as I still love his material, shocking as it is to the conservatives.
