For most comedians, George Carlin’s signature Class Clown album is on their Mount Rushmore of comedy, considered by many to be the best comedy album of all time.

 

Now,  two comedians are honouring the late Carlin with a documentary.

Judd Apatow and Michael Bonfiglio  produced the film that traces the rise and multiple rebirths of Carlin, from mainstream, groomed comic in a skinny tie and slicked-back hair to bearded, long-haired provocateur.

“The way George Carlin looked at the world and broke it down taught so many of us how to be comedians,” said Judd Apatow. “He injected the software into our brains about how to think as a comic.”

Carlin died in 2008. He was 71.

The first half of the two-part documentary airs Friday, May 20 with the second the following day.
