Carlin was born and raised on Manhattan, New York City. He was famous for making a list of curse words that people should not say in the media, or even in public. (The list was ironically adopted by many radio stations, as a guide to what kind of language was not allowed.) As a stand-up performer, he had been called one of the greatest of his genre by the television network Comedy Central.
