The Grammy Museum will commemorate Grammy-winning comedian George Carlin with a new display on the Museum’s third floor. The exhibit will mark the third display in the Museum’s comedy series, following previous tributes to Rodney Dangerfield and Joan Rivers. “Ever since I became the keeper of my dad’s stuff in 2008, I have enjoyed sharing little bits of it with friends and comedians,” said Kelly Carlin, the comedian’s daughter. “But to know that his fans will now get to see some of it, makes my heart swell with joy. I am thrilled that the Grammy Museum is creating a place for his stuff.” “George Carlin helped redefine the art form of stand-up comedy. He used his talent to not only entertain, but to question conventional wisdom and social injustices,” said Bob Santelli, Executive Director of the Grammy Museum. “With this latest display in our comedy series, we continue to spotlight some of the greatest comedy acts, many of whom have been recognized by the GRAMMY Awards.” Artifacts on display in George Carlin: A Place For My Stuff will include:
Carlin’s Grammy Awards and other accolades
Childhood scrapbook and photos
The set list from his performances on The Tonight Show in 1962 and The Ed Sullivan Show in 1971
His public arrest records
Script from the 1999 cult film Dogma
The exhibit opens September 30 and will be on display through March of 2016. You can plan your trip and get tickets here. The Grammy Museum is located in Los Angeles, CA.
