Amazing interview with a soft-spoken, introspective George Carlin during the time in which he evolved from a TV comic doing 5 minutes bits to provactive anti-establishment social commentary. This is a very frank interview about struggles of gettomg shows, getting fired for saying a 4-letter word that starts with SH and ends with T. Much here to paint a picture of the real man behind the beard.
