George Carlin Recorded A Joke About Mass Fatalities The Day Before 9/11

It’s dark, but also very much a George Carlin joke.

George Carlin was no stranger to pushing the envelope, and he definitely aimed to do that with “I Kinda Like It When a Lotta People Die,” a new LP of unreleased material coming out September 16th.

Most striking is the titular bit below about mass fatalities, performed the day before September 11, 2001, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The joke never made it into his HBO special that November, but now after 15 years, it’s ready to make an official debut.

Carlin was an entertainer known for his dark yet spot-on humor, and this new material lives up to that legacy.
