Louis CK honors George Carlin

Brian Regan and Louis CK have been my favorite comedians for years now, but George Carlin was one of the first ones I had discovered in the early 90s that had me laughing for days.

So I was glad to find this clip of Louis CK speaking about George Carlin and the momentous inspiration the late comedic icon had on his career. Taken from a tribute to George Carlin at the New York Public Library hosted by Whoopi Goldberg in March 2010, Louis CK becomes emotional describing the specific events and methods of building new material that gave his comedy new direction and fueled his recent success.
