Eddie Brill Talks George Carlin, Letterman, and Advice for Other Comics


“Carlin told him: ‘Just tell the truth from your perspective and no-one can ever argue with that. Just don’t make fun of other people’s lives and their ways because then they’re going to close off to you… You don’t tell the audience ‘you suck!’ It’s ‘we suck!’”

- Former Late Show-booker Eddie Brill recounted some advice from George Carlin in an interview with Chortle, and also talked about prepping foreign comics for Letterman and the desperate need for vulnerability in standup.
