STUDIO CITY (CBS) — Kelly Carlin, daughter of George Carlin, stopped by the KCAL9 studios Monday to talk about her show, A Carlin Home Companion: Growing up with George.

Through storytelling, classic video footage, and family memorabilia, Kelly Carlin, the only child of iconoclastic comedian George Carlin, chronicles over 40 years of her life with her famous father. A funny, poignant and honest look at the man who not only redefined 20th century comedy, but inspired generations of comedy fans with such classic routines as Hippie Dippie Weatherman, Class Clown, The Seven Dirty Words, A Place for Your Stuff, and Modern Man.

Kelly reveals what it was like to be swept up into the life and career of her father from his early days as a straight comic through his transformation into a counter culture hero and iconoclastic social commentator to the very last days of his life.

    who care what that foul mouth hater’s life was like.
    he was a loser.

  2. Steve G says:

    How come if somebody spews forth hatred and intolerance in a comedic way we seem to think it’s okay.
    Whereas if he was hateful and bigoted in a straightforward fashion we could have easily seen what a foul person he really was.
    I guess it’s okay to mock and ridicule other people if you are making people laugh at the same time.

    He’s a legend because he was talking about people like you Steve G. and Steve Sharkman.

  4. Art G. says:

    Right on Lisa. Steve G. and Steve Sharkman are probably white Republican bankers and as hard as George tried to tear the scales off their eyes he still couldn’t because they were already petrified!!!

    Well, I’m disappointed with this article. I expected at least some tidbits of information about her life with one of my favorite comedians. I didn’t expect advertising.

    Lisa and Art. Do you two realize you have the same symptoms as Steve and Steve? Just a different disease!
