    George Carlin

      I never saw him as a comedian, but more as a layman's philosopher. I would never watch his stand up and laugh, instead I would get mad.

        What specials did you watch? If you watch anything from the mid 90s on, you start to see him get less and less "comic-y" (whatever that means) and more serious and angry. However, if you go back to his earlier specials from the 70s and 80s there are a lot fewer rants and a lot more jokes, while maintaining the same level of insightfulness. I'd say two of my favorites are Jammin In New York and What Am I Doing in New Jersey, so I'd recommend checking those out if you haven't. Carlin at Carnegie is also really good.
