That same year, he was arrested for violating obscenity laws when he performed this routine at the Milwaukee Summerfest, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The words were: sh*t, p*ss, f*ck, c*nt, c*cksucker, motherf*cker, and t*ts. These essays focus on each of these “forbidden” words. Most of the words remain taboo on American broadcast television.Carlin was admired for his ballsy, anti-establishment, ‘tell-it-like-it-is,’ ‘I-don’t-give-a-damn-if-they-like-it’ persona. Many admired his truth and bravery which rattled a lot of cages and brought joy to legions of fans.George Denis Patrick Carlin died on June 22, 2008, of heart failure at the age of 71. The world of comedy would never be the same.
