My brothers and I memorized his "Live In Concert" (1979). Simply phenomenal!
I grew up listening to a "clean cut" George Carlin in the mid-60s when he was doing Hippy Dippy Weatherman and Indian Drill Sargent. Later on - Class Clown and Toledo Window Box were classics.
Love Bill Cosby too. Wonderfulness and I Started Out As A Child were among his early bests.
Then of course there was Cheech and Chong before they went into movies.
When I was in the military I liked listening to Hudson and Landry. Losing Their Heads was a good one.
