A modern day Mark Twain, the first ever to host SNL.

For a lover of words and languages, George Carlin was one of the best -if not the best- and I personally drew a lot of inspiration from his cynical profane weird and wild satires.

SANTA MONICA, Calif. - A publicist for George Carlin says the legendary comedian has died of heart failure at a hospital in Santa Monica, Calif.

Jeff Abraham says Carlin went into St. John's Health Center on Sunday afternoon, complaining of chest pain. Carlin died at 5:55 p.m. PDT. He was 71.

Carlin, who had a history of heart trouble, performed as recently as last weekend at the Orleans Casino and Hotel in Las Vegas. It was announced Tuesday that Carlin was being awarded the 11th annual Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.

The dean of counterculture comedians, Carlin constantly pushed the envelop with his jokes, particularly with a routine called "The Seven Words You Can Never Say On TV."

Indeed it is a very sad day kwa wale ambao tunapenda uhuru wa maoni na hasa maoni yenye kuudhi!
