The first trailer for a film about comedian George Carlin has been released by HBO. Carlin is widely regarded as one of America’s most well-known and well-liked comedians. He turned into a true rock star comedy, with tragic results.
Carlin was a drug addict who didn’t spend enough time with his family, but that didn’t stop him from becoming a stand-up comedy legend. The video includes clips from his life, as well as comments from family members and other comedians, as well as excerpts from various speeches.
Karlin was known for his edgy social performances, so the film is simply titled “He dared to wake us up” beneath the video.
Judd Apatow and Michael Bonfiglio co-directed the documentary.
The two-part documentary will premiere on HBO Max on May 20.
