Seven Dirty Words: The Life and Crimes of George Carlin - James Sullivan While I found a lot of Carlin's history in his rise to famous comic interesting I wouldn't call this a compelling read. Like a lot of biographies it was pretty dry and some what boring recitation of times and places occasionally punctuated with some humour. Learning that Carlin appeared on the Mike Douglas show with John Lennon and Yoko Ono as co-hosts was actually a surprise to me. I would dearly love to see that episode. I also learned why he hates golfers. It's a few of these gems that made this worth at least a read through.There's really nothing of Carlin himself in this biography so I'm hoping that when I finally get to read Last Words that I'll learn more about the man himself.
