Welcome to Morphizm’s latest category, pals. I’ve been hired to spiel on the entertainment machine for Wired, who also retain me to spiel on music as well, which is where Morphizm’s Post Up! category comes from. I’ve been at it for a few weeks now on the regular, but was waiting to get into a rhythm before I started pimping that shit on Morphizm. Who better to inaugurate the syndication than the late, great George Carlin? That’s right, no one.
Comedy Titans to Honor Carlin With Twain Award
In a year when too many shining lights have passed on, the loss of George Carlin was particularly hard to take. His trenchant satire is more needed than ever in these times of war and economic implosion. At least his immeasurable contribution to American humor will be publicly honored by his peers and disciples.
Although Carlin was announced as the recipient of the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor before his passing in June, he will now become its first posthumously awarded legend. Jon Stewart, Bill Maher, Margaret Cho, Lily Tomlin, Garry Shandling, Lewis Black and many more comedians will pay tribute to the master of language and laughs Nov. 10 at Washington’s John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. The event will be shown later on public broadcasting stations nationwide. MORE @ WIRED
