When discussing the greatest stand-up comedians of all time, the name of George Carlin is a mandatory part of the discussion (especially now that Bill Cosby is out of the cool kids’ club for at least the rest of his sad life). Carlin is known for his cynical, some might say misanthropic as he got older, viewpoints, but there was a softer side too, as documented by the new book A Carlin Home Companion by his daughter, Kelly.
Kelly Carlin is George’s only daughter, so she has a completely unique perspective on the late comedian, who wasn’t well-known for publicizing his private life. That alone makes A Carlin Home Companion a must-read for Carlin fans.
If that includes you, head over to A Carlin Home Companion‘s Amazon listing here, where you can grab a copy of the book starting at $12.99 for the Kindle edition, or to just check out some reviews and other bits of info on the book.
