Conversation Portrait: A Tribute to George Carlin hosted by Whoopi Goldberg, featuring Lewis Lapham, Kelly Carlin-McCall, Tony Hendra, Louis C.K., Kevin Smith, Dylan Brody, March 24, 2010

GEORGE CARLIN is remembered for his unique and quintessentially New York voice, his coruscating mastery of the English language and his devastatingly funny insights into such timeless human follies as war, class, moral hypocrisy, God and golf.

Born in New York City in 1937, George Dennis Patrick Carlin was one of the greatest and most influential stand-up comedians of all time. He appeared on The Tonight Show more than 130 times, starred in an unprecedented 14 HBO Specials, hosted the first Saturday Night Live and penned three New York Times bestselling books. Of the 23 solo albums recorded by Mr. Carlin, 11 were Grammy nominated and he took home the coveted statue five times. George Carlin passed away at age 71 on June 22, 2008.

This program honors the publication of George Carlin's posthumous "sortabiography" - "Last Words," written with TONY HENDRA.

WHOOPI GOLDBERG hosts an eclectic gathering of comedic and cultural icons and friends who come together to celebrate George Carlin's life, art, comedy and broad cultural influence with readings, anecdotes, memories, and personal tributes.

This animation is a summary of some of the ideas discussed at the NY Public Library on March 24, 2010.
