Carlin made a tremendous impact on the comedy industry, and was probably most famous for his ‘seven words’ routine. The skit revolved around seven words that you can never say on television, and when Carlin uttered all of them during a show in Milwaukee in 1972, he was arrested for disturbing the peace.

The comedian was also involved in producing and made cameos in several films, including Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes’s View Askewniverse series.
