Being a stalwart in the comedy arena, his addition to the National Comedy Museum comes as no surprise. Carlin passed away in 2008. Since then, his daughter Kelly Carlin has been the guardian of his ‘stuff’. He has left behind scrapbooks, arrest records, the pink slip to his first car, a Dodge Dart, VHS tapes and handwritten notes of ideas for his performances. Kelly Carlin announced at a private event that she would like to donate all of her father’s records to the National Comedy Museum.
Kelly Carlin says that when comedians would come over to the house they would be delighted to go through his work. The chief curator of the Museum says that this is the first big donation that the museum has received and they are delighted. Kliph Nesteroff says that, along with the exhibits of Carlin, they plan to create holograms of the forerunners of comedy.
