You are entirely correct!

"Carlin, the quick-witted, antiestablishment comedian."

Excuse me? In what way in the last ten years has he shown himself to be quick-witted? He was always overrated by the leftist media establishment he was a part of, just as clods like Lenny Bruce were. Antiestablishment? Right--- and I suppose Margaret Cho is brave and funny too.

Ann's only problem is that Leno's audiences have been getting more and more filled with rabid leftists a la Bill Mahr's show, although it's not nearly as bad as Mahr's yet. It can be hard to come off well if the crowd claps at everything Leno and Carlin say and hisses at her, regardless of the fact that she'll be making the only coherent points.

Carlin is one of the originators of the modern stand up persona. He's over the hill now but at his best he was brilliant and deserves to be ranked with the likes of Richard Pryor.
