Comedian George Carlin, sneaking up up his 70th birthday, is performing this weekend the Warner Theatre in Washington, DC. In an interview, the funnyman revealed that when he was 5 years old, his mother used to bring him to her marketing office to stand before the ladies at lunchtime and entertain them with his Mae West imitation.
• • Carlin told Washington Post Staff Writer Ellen McCarthy:
"I noticed two things. . . . I noticed that I got the attention of the adults and I got their approval for doing these things," he recalls. "It was just very attractive, in the literal sense of that word."
