"Saturday Night Live" pays tribute to George Carlin, on Saturday, June 28, by re-airing its premiere episode that featured him as host.
Remembering Carlin, Lorne Michaels noted: "George Carlin helped give 'Saturday Night Live' its start as our first host. He was gracious, fearless, and most important of all, funny."
Carlin performed three individual monologues on the program that also introduced audiences to the "Not Ready For Prime-Time Players".
The 1975 episode also features musical guests Janis Ian and Billy Preston as well as a landmark performance from comedian Andy Kaufman.
Here's George's first monologue if you really can't make the time tonight.
