Last Words: A Memoir

Author(s): George Carlin


With 14 HBO specials, five Grammys, a critical Supreme Court victory over censorship and countless appearances on the international comedy circuit, George Carlin saw it all and made fun of most of it. Here, he spares no details describing his life and career, discussing his personal battle with substance abuse, his often turbulent relationships with the women in his life and the politics that informed his stand-up routines. From the highs to the lows, Last Words is told with the same brash, unblinking honesty that defined George Carlin's life as a comedian.
