When the death of George Carlin was announced on June 22, 2008, the news arrived like a cruel punchline to a sick joke nobody wanted to laugh at. Although he had throughout his long career rejected the American Cult of Personality, Carlin was at the time of his death the nation's most beloved (and most needed) stand-up satirist. In his 14th HBO special and final concert appearance, Carlin ruminates with unapologetic irreverence on the touchy subjects of life, religion and even death ("Picture your grandmother in Hell... baking pies... without an oven.") Unbowed and unmellowed at the ripe old age of 70, Carlin flame roasts such sacred cultural cows as Lance Armstrong, Tiger Woods, Betty Ford, overprotected children, patriotism, self-help and even the Statue of Liberty in his life-long pursuit for truth, justice and the American Way.
