RIP: George Carlin on the Tonight Show (1966)

Here’s the obit. And here’s Car­lin with John­ny Car­son over 40 years ago, sport­ing a very dif­fer­ent look. Rather remark­able to look at.

Also worth a look is his famous piece: Sev­en Dirty Words You Can’t Hear on TV because it formed the basis for a first amend­ment case that went to the US Supreme Court in the 1970s. Obvi­ous­ly, giv­en the very nature of the con­tent and case, you should know in advance that the video is not exact­ly “fam­i­ly-friend­ly” video.
