Carlin on Campus tomorrow night

george carlinArguably a living legend, George Carlin will turn the big 70 this year. The man has been around for so long and transcended generations with his comedy that he has an almost eternal quality to him. That's foolish, of course, since the man is only human, but there's something about watching this icon grow old that's rather unsettling, and almost unfair. If you happen to be near a television late tomorrow night, Comedy Central will be showing Carlin's 1984 special Carlin on Campus as part of their Secret Stash. The show will be completely uncut and unedited. If you haven't seen it, it's worth checking out. Then catch some recent footage of the venerable comedian and see just how quick-witted and prolific he still is.

I know it was from 1984. Corrected.

Carlin on Campus is considered one of his "early" specials?

Maybe "earlier". Carlin did that special in, what, 1984? He had already been doing HBO specials for 7 years by then. And, of course, he had been on the stand-up circuit for 20 years at that point. So calling Carlin on Campus "early" is like saying Dick Clark did Pyramid "early" in his career.

Classic special, though.
