Mindenekelőtt megemlítem, hogy sok lesz az angol szöveg, de Carlin mesterien bánik a nyelvvel, én meg nem akarok belekontárkodni, tehát egy pici nyelvtudás nem árt. :)

- Carlin adta Fillmore hangját a Disney/Pixar Cars című animációs filmjében, ami 2006-ban jelent meg. A karakter a rendszerrel szembenálló hippi volt, egy VW Mikrobusz, pszichedelikus festéssel, a rendszámtábláján pedig "51237" volt, Carlin születésnapja.
- Carlin utolsó HBO Special-jét, az It's Bad for Ya-t, 2008 március 1-én adták le.
- 2008 június 18-án, négy nappal halála előtt, a Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts bejelentette, hogy Carlin kapja a 2008-as Mark Twain Prize for American Humor-t, amit november 10-én adtak át. Carlin lett az első posztumusz díjazott, ezt a döntést a Kennedy Center a családdal és az eseményt közvetítő PBS csatornával is megbeszélte. A komikusok közt voltak, akik tisztelegtek Carlin előtt: Jon Stewart, Bill Maher, Lily Tomlin (korábbi Twain Humor Prize nyertes), Lewis Black, Denis Leary, Joan Rivers és Margaret Cho.
- 2008 június 22-én került Carlin egy Santa Barbara-i kórházba, miután mellkasi fájdalomra panaszkodott. Még aznap, délután 5 óra 55 perckor megállt a szíve és ezúttal már nem tért vissza az élők sorába. Egy héttel korábban még Las Vegas-ban lépett fel és természetesen további fellépéseket tervezett.
- Utolsó kívánságának megfelelően elhamvasztották, hamvait szétszórták és sem polgári, sem vallásos szertartás nem volt.
- Halálának hírére az HBO és az NBC is megváltoztatta a műsorrendjét és előbbi Carlin Special-öket adott, utóbbi pedig az első Saturday Night Live-ot ismételte meg, amit maga Carlin vezetett.
- 22-én a Larry King Live műsort Carlin emlékének szentelték és King beszélgetett Jerry Seinfeld-del, Bill Maher-ral, Lewis Black-kel és Roseanne Barr-ral is, valamint Carlin lányával és bátyjával is. Másnap a New York Times-ban megjelent róla egy cikk Jerry Seinfeld tollából, aki néhány nappal korábban még telefonon beszélgetett vele és pont a halálról viccelődtek.
- Az előbbieken kívül természetesen számtalan megemlékezés bukkant fel a nagy híroldalaktól kezdve a magazinok honlapjain át, egészen a különféle blogokig mindenhol. Szerencsére a többség nem csak a "7 szó" köré fonta a szövegét, hanem megemlítették munkásságának nagyobb részét is.
- 2009-ben várható a megjelenése egy olyan gyűjteménynek, melyben Carlin családja és barátai mesélnek majd történeteket, ezt lánya, Kelly szerkeszti.

Carlin karrierje számokban: 14 HBO Special műsor, 25 album, 3 gyűjtemény album, 6 könyv, 5 hangoskönyv, 5 Grammy díj, Hollywood Walk of Fame csillag, Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, Lifetime Achievement Award in Comedy, 2 American Comedy Award, 2 CableACE díj és egy jelölés, 2 Daytime Emmy és 5 Emmy jelölés, bestseller könyvek, és másodiknak választották (Richard Pryor mögött, de Lenny Bruce előtt) a Comedy Central 100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time választásán 2004 áprilisában. Ezen kívül rengeteg filmes és Tv-s szereplés, elő fellépés és egyebek.

Miért szenvedtem azzal, hogy ezt a sok adatot összegyűjtsem? Nos, nálam nem második, hanem a #1 George Carlin, ha komikusokról van szó. Zseniális volt ez a fickó. Volt, de szomorú ezt leírni. Nélküle sokkal kevésbé vidám ez a világ és vele együtt kihunyt egy olyan fény a nagy sötétségben, amire pedig nagy szükség lenne. Carlin halála nagy veszteség. Nem csak nevettetett, hanem el is gondolkodtatott és rávilágott sok butaságra és furcsaságra. Igazi mestere volt a nyelvnek és nem állhatott semmi az útjába, ha valamit el akart mondani. És nem is fogta vissza magát, hiszen ahogy mondta, egy komikus dolga az, hogy megtalálja hol van az a bizonyos vonal és szándékosan lépje azt át. George Carlin pedig meg is tette, számtalanszor, és ezért rengeteg ember lesz hálás, hiszen sok komikusra volt nagy hatással az, amit csinált és az úttörő munkája is elévülhetetlen.

Én először a Dogma című filmben találkoztam vele, majd mikor a Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back-ben is láttam, elhatároztam, utánanézek, ki ez a pasas. Akkor bukkantam rá tőle pár videóra a neten és majd' szétszakadtam a röhögéstől. Aztán újranézve néhány rutinját rájöttem, nem csak nagyon humoros, hanem okos is és remek meglátásai vannak, melyekkel egyet is értettem. Nagy öröm volt olyat találni, aki sok dologról ugyanúgy vélekedett és ki is merte mondani a véleményét. Mik ezek a dolgok? Például a vallás vagy a politikai korrektség, Georgie mind a kettőt darabokra cincálta, nem is egyszer. De más komoly és sokkal triviálisabb témákba belemélyesztette a karmait, mint a nemi erőszak, ami bizony lehet vicces is, vagy mondjuk a repülőn elhangző biztonsági oktatás. De a tízparancsolatot is lefaragta úgy, hogy csak kettő maradt a végén. Végül alább található pár videó, melyek átfogó képet biztos nem adnak ennek a fantasztikus embernek a tehetségéről/tudásáról, de ízelítőként remek szolgálatot tehetnek.
