THE GREAT GEORGE CARLIN DIES AT 71
Today is a sad day for comedy. One of the greatest comedians succumbs to heart failure and dies at the age of 71. Carlin is best known for his comic routine ''Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television''.
He was a comedic pioneer that loved to skate on thin ice with censorship.
He appeared in such moves as Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventures, Jersey Girl, and Scary Movie 3.
His comedy and screen presence will be greatly missed.
Here is a clip from his most famous comedic routine "Seven Words You Can Never Say On Television."
