Mom pleads with parents after daughter's hospitalization

Hedberg’s comedy was based on short, memorable one-liners filled with absurdity. He died in 2005 of a drug overdose. George Carlin is often listed among the greatest comedians of all time and was a counterculture voice in the 60s and 70s. Later in life, his comedy evolved into a nihilistic critique of American life which, for many, is still relevant today.

“It’s called ‘The American Dream’ because you have to be asleep to believe it,” Carlin said.

Here are 21 of the funniest and most poignant quotes from a comedian shared on the AskReddit forum.

“Everyone thinks he’s an actor. Especially in my job.” —Norm Macdonald

It comes from Macdonald’s memoir, “Based on a True Story”, a must-read for Norm fans. My favorite thing about this line is that it was kind of a random throwaway, almost an afterthought, because it expressed contempt for a doctor who told a joke and made everyone in the room laugh .

And that doctor joke? It was the story of Macdonald’s moth.

“The world is like a ride in an amusement park, and when you choose to go there, you think it’s real because that’s how powerful our minds are. The ride goes up and down, spins and spins, it has thrills and chills, and it’s very colorful, and it’s very loud, and it’s fun for a while.

A lot of people have been on the ride for a long time, and they start to wonder, ‘Hey, is this real or is this just a ride?’ And other people have remembered, and they’re coming back to us and saying, ‘Hey, don’t worry; don’t be afraid, ever, because it’s only a ride.

And we… kill these people.

‘Shut him up! I invested a lot in this carousel, shut up! Look at my worry lines, look at my big bank account, and my family. It must be real.

It’s just a trick. But we always kill the good guys who try to tell us that, have you ever noticed that? And let the demons run wild… But it doesn’t matter, because it’s just a ride.

And we can change it at any time. It’s only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no money saved. Just a simple choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, shut up. Instead, the eyes of love see us all as one.

Here’s what we can do to change the world, right now, towards better driving. Take all that money we spend every year on arms and defenses and spend it instead on feeding, clothing and educating the world’s poor, which it would pay many times over, not one human being outcast, and we could exploring space, together, inside and out, forever, in peace.” —Bill Hicks
