On This Day in Comedy History - 1972
On this day in 1972 George Carlin recorded his "Class Clown" album at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. This would normally be the point where I would go on to discuss the importance of not only the album but the content etc., but I stumbled across an article today by Timothy Bella(writer for The Atlantic) that does a fantastic job doing just that. Timothy discusses "Class Clown" and the subsequent "7 Dirty Words" with the same enthusiasm and passion that any true comedy fan will appreciate. So without further ado, follow the link and read the article.
