Bruce Mahler on "Fridays" with George Carlin


Thank you, Brandon, for bringing this brilliant piece to my attention. It's from the show Fridays (which was supposed to be a Saturday Night Live ripoff) from 1981 (show G-06) in a skit called K.P.L.O.: Radio Palestine with Friday the 13th: Part IV alum Bruce "Superbowl Of Self Abuse" Mahler and the legendary George Carlin.

    Oh no worries Jack, my good man! Its all cool. :-)

    I also commented on this video as you can tell by clicking on it externally. :D I was SO psyched to discover this last one last year around December time but I only recently got around to sharing those fuck-load of videos with ya, as you already know. :)

    And I thankfully saw Mr. Carlin live around '03 in Wichita, Kansas at the Century II Concert Area. I didn't agree with everything that he had to say as they guy could get pretty negative & a bit too darkly comedic at times, but I am still glad that I got to see this legendary social commentator, even better then Bill Hicks or Lenny Bruce, live in person with decent seats. His opening act, Kevin Blair, was just an average/amusing guy, though.

    By the way: the infamous rip-offs of SNL I ALWAYS loved more then the badly overrated, often times far too safe humor of SNL re-runs. I didn't mind it in the early to mid '90s but the show stopped being that funnier not long after I grew up and several notable people sadly died off.

    I loved re-runs of Fridays as well early to late Mad-TV as well, too. You're more then welcomed my good man! Peace. :)
