Saw George live at the Circle Star (San Carlos, CA) in the early 70’s. He walks to center stage (it was a round revolving stage) and after all the cheering and whistles settle down, he is hit by a single spotlight. The very first thing out of George’s mouth was: “Did ya ever notice how your own farts don’t smell bad??” the place went crazy...
Wow that is a lost memory.
I was just a kid but remember reading in the Sunday paper who was a the Circle Start.
We went to the Pavillion in Concord.
Wonder if that is even still there (25 yrs later).
I remember watching one of his acts on HBO. He walks out on the stage and the first thing out of his mouth was: "did ya ever notice how most of the women who are against abortion are so ugly that nobody would ever want to f*** them in the first place?" ... a few courtesy chuckles resulted and then he went on about a five minute diatribe about anti-abortion people and then finally decided to get back to his comedy routine. The funniest thing to me about that whole routine was that when I think about the contrast pictures showing hot conservative women and angry liberal women, I think "Man, George must have been into UGLY broads."
"Two guys in an elevator, one guy farts, everybody knows who did it! The other guy gets off at the mezzanine and walks down."
I don't know why, but... when I was 12, that really broke me up. :-)
I was a big fan when I was younger. Still enjoyed him, at times, when he wasn't going off on political rants. Saw him in person three times... always enjoyed it. But, NOBODY made me laugh harder than Rodney Dangerfield in person!
