Wednesday, June 25, 2008 | 06:30 PM

Carlin_main_w_interview George Carlin recorded 14 live comedy stand up specials for HBO, over the course of three decades.

HBO will air Carlin's most recent live comedy special, "It's Bad for Ya," at 9 p.m. Friday, June 27.

Tonight and tomorrow, HBO2 will air 11 of those earlier shows:

Wednesday, June 25th
8:00pm   George Carlin at USC (1977)
9:00pm   George Carlin Again! (1978)
11:00pm  Carlin at Carnegie (1983)
12:00am  Carlin on Campus (1984)

10:00pm  Jammin in New York (1992)
11:00pm  Back in Town (1996)
12:05am  You Are All Diseased (1999)
1:00am   It’s Bad For Ya (2008)

Also, this weekend, NBC will be running the very first ever 1975 Saturday Night Live, hosted by none other than George Carlin. Its a must TiVo show.

Those of you who may not be all that familiar with Carlin's earlier works should especially catch the 1970's and 80's work. Its probably tame compared to what you are used to today, but Carlin was groundbreaking. Most modern comics owe a huge debt to Carlin.

For those of you without HBO, there's always the complete set: All My Stuff
