When Carlin's in a more reflective mood, he reveals, 'I couldn't commit suicide if my life depended on it,' and...read more

Last Words is the story of the man behind some of the most seminal comedy of the last half century, blending his signature acerbic humor with never-before-told stories from his own life, including encounters with a Who’s Who of 1970s...read more
