George Denis Patrick Carlin (May 12, 1937 – June 22, 2008) was an American stand-up comedian, social critic, philosopher, actor, and author. Widely regarded as one of the most important and influential stand-up comics of all time, he was once dubbed “the dean of counterculture comedians”. He was well known for his dark comedy and reflections on politics, the English language, psychology, religion, and various taboo subjects. His “seven dirty words” routine was central to the 1978 U.S. Supreme Court case F.C.C. v. Pacifica Foundation, in which a 5–4 decision affirmed the government’s power to censor indecent material on the public airwaves.
