Brian Lehrer Show - #TBT: Brian and George Carlin
40 playsDownload

It’s Throwback Thursday and we’re marking the 25th anniversary of the show this fall with a dip into the Brian Lehrer Show archives every week.

This week, we highlight part of Brian’s conversation with legendary comedian George Carlin in 2007 in which they talk about Carlin’s July 1972 arrest over the “Seven Words You Can Never Say On Television.” Here he is describing the picture of him getting arrested.

You can find Brian’s whole interview (and it’s really worth a listen) here

This is somehow both an exquisite takedown and the total perfection of the Ted Talk format, at the same time.
