This touching Louis CK George Carlin tribute clip is more touching than funny. Louis CK talks at length about how George Carlin shaped his view of comedy and how Carlin was really the reason why he got into comedy. After 15 years he had been doing the same act that he didn't even like. But he didn't know what he wanted to do. Working in Chinese restaurants where people don't know that a show is going to happen because they just went there to eat. After that show he listened to a CD of George and comedy and he workshopping it. Carlin kept putting out new content and he started to cry. Louis CK actually started crying. And George Carlin started to create that year's special and throw it away. Which was unheard of to Louis.
And that gave Louis the courage to go out and start his act all over and say whatever it is that he wants. And instead of doing the act that he didn't even like, he started talking about the things that he really wanted to say. And he started talking about how he couldn't have sex with his wife because they had a baby and his baby was an asshole which totally caught the audience off guard and he knew that he was doing something right and he his career has taken off since then, thanks to George Carlin. And we're really glad he did.
