I used to think Carlin was hilarious. Some of his comedy is quite funny. However, over the years I have come to the conclusion that much of his stuff is really not that funny; its just "edgyness" of shock and swear words. Thats not to say that swearing and shock can't be funny. Sam Kinison was one of the best ever.
The rant where he says all of the forbidden words was never funny, it was simply gratuitous.

Sam Kinison was the best, IMHO.

It's all in the delivery. That scene he had with Rodney in Back to School was one of the best ever.

Kinison put Carlin to shame. In fact, when Kinison came around was about the time Carlin started to suck.
