#TBT Brian and George Carlin, 2007

Email a Friend

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." You can find Brian's whole interview (and it's really worth a listen) here. And here's the photo Carlin is really talking about.

And starting in September, we’ll be looking at the last 25 years in 25 days – picking a news event, issue or icon from the past quarter century and diving in. Stay tuned!
