Dubbed the "dean of counterculture comedians", Carlin evolved with the times for half a century, remaining resonant even beyond his death in 2008. This documentary examines a cultural chameleon who's remembered as one of the most influential stand-up comics of all time.

After a slump in the '80s, Carlin comes back with a vengeance, reaching new heights - and new audiences - with another reinvention that highlights his prescient political commentary. Following his death in 2008, fellow comics reflect on his enduring legacy.
