Before They Were Stars: George Carlin Sings on “The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour” in 1968

To celebrate the birthday of the late, great George Carlin, here’s some very early footage of him from 1968, performing and singing alongside Dick and Tom Smothers in this sketch on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. I’m sure many of you Carlin fans will be shell-shocked when you see him without his beard, and watching George, Dick and Tom standing beside each other in those matching red turtlenecks may make you think you’ve wandered into an episode of Star Trek. Also keep your eye out in this sketch for Bob Einstein, a.k.a. the future Super Dave Osborne!
