George Carlin The Hall: Honoring The Greats of Stand Up | The Official Podcast

    • Comedy Interviews

THE HALL podcast series for “Netflix is a Joke” delves deep into the lives and careers of the greats of stand-Up Comedy. Hosted by Cristela Alonzo, the first episode of THE HALL explores the brilliance of George Carlin. We tell the story of the evolution of Carlin’s stand-up, ultimately becoming the long-haired, bearded, comedic sage we all love. Carlin’s comedy wasn’t off-the-cuff or improvised, he carefully considered every word and was deliberate about the rhythm and flow of his routines. Not only did Carlin’s work inspire a Supreme Court case, his path in comedy became something every modern comedian of today aspires to. To honor George Carlin we speak to Colin Quinn, Jay Leno, Laraine Newman, Kevin Smith, and his daughter Kelly Carlin and more.
