    George Carlin. Unlike many of the present day social critic comedians he was actually funny. He could be bawdy . . . he wasn’t afraid of taboo . . . he was a bit of a performer. Also, he was popular and as such he was a hard target for political censorship. I’m thinking Aristophanes and Carlin would be a riot at a party.

    I think it would be more like the guys behind Team America or The Interview- comics who really go after the most powerful people today (including Matt Damon! Ha ha!)
