Funny People On Funny People

Jerry Seinfeld on George Carlin's Life and Comedy - New York Times

You know, everything I've been reading about George Carlin this past week has made him seem like he was that rarest of beasts: a stand-up comic with some wisdom and warmth in his material. Not that Jerry Seinfeld is a cold heartless bastard, but...basically yeah. Also, unlike other famous funnymen whose goofy public personas, from what I've gathered, are miles away from their actual personalities (such as Jerry Lewis, Bill Murray, or Mike Myers), it sounds like Carlin the comic and Carlin the man were one and the same. Party on, dude.
