Although he's gone, George Carlin's memory lives on, in what he called a sorta-biography that was just published. NPR, being hip and with it, interviewed his co-author Tony Hendra, who talked about the book, answered some questions, but mostly sat through other people repeating George Carlin bits. And you know what? There is a reason most people are not comedians.
If you're so inclined, I've embedded the interview below, but it might be more fun to click here and read what Carlin wrote about his own conception. Some people got it, some people...call into radio shows and repeat what a famous comedian once said.
Ha cha cha.
