the man behind the mic

George Carlin’s daughter, Kelly Carlin-McCall, has made a deal with Hyperion Books to create an oral history of her father's life, including his struggles with drugs and alcohol, USA Today reports.

Due out next fall, the story will come from family and friends such as his older brother, Patrick, and his manager of 30 years, Jerry Hamza.

Five months after he died of heart failure, Carlin is still on the minds of many. Just yesterday, Jon Stewart, Joan Rivers and others were at the Kennedy Center in Washington, where Carlin was named the first posthumous recipient of the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.

‘I hope he is looked upon like Mark Twain,” Carlin-McCall said, ‘someone who wanted to slap us into higher thinking and used humor to help us laugh at ourselves."
