SIRIUSXM COMEDY GREATS and CARLIN'S CORNER channels will exclusively premiere a new album from the late GEORGE CARLIN, "I Kinda Like It When A Lotta People Die," on SEPTEMBER 1st. The airing of the show, recorded on SEPTEMBER 9th and 10th, 2001 at the MGM GRAND in LAS VEGAS and consisting of material that was later reworked after the 9/11 attacks for the special, "Complaints and Grievances," will be accompanied by a home recording CARLIN made in 1957 at the age of 19 and a documentary, "GEORGE CARLIN: A LIFE IN COMEDY," hosted by RON BENNINGTON.
“There are very few stars – if any – that shine brighter in the comedy world than GEORGE CARLIN,” said SVP/Comedy Programming JACK VAUGHN. “After 15 years on the cutting room floor, I’m thrilled that this hidden gem will finally see the light of day – and that SIRIUSXM subscribers will be the first to hear it. Dark, twisted, and above all else, funny – it’s CARLIN at his best.”
“My dad was so efficient, he'd use up his material either in his HBO shows or books with nothing leftover. I'm amazed we found this stuff, and the comedy nerd in me was thrilled,” said GEORGE’s daughter and SIRIUSXM host KELLY CARLIN. “It's vintage ‘crossing the line’ CARLIN material.”
The show will be repeated on RAW DOG COMEDY HITS and will be released as an album via digital download, CD, and limited edition vinyl by MPI on SEPTEMBER 16th.
