Carlin's career has been going strong since the 1960s, when he appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show and was a frequent guest host on The Tonight Show. He was even present for Lenny Bruce's arrest for obscenity, and earned himself a ride to jail right along with Bruce because he told the police he didn't believe in government-issued IDs.
Of course, Carlin's been keeping busy since then; he's appeared in Kevin Smith's Dogma and voiced a character in Cars, plus he created eighteen original comedy albums â not to mention his numerous standup and television appearances. Tonight you can catch Carlin live at the Buell Theatre in the Denver Performing Arts Complex; tickets are $45 to $75, and proceeds will benefit KBDI-TV/Channel 12.
