I recently watched PBS’ George Carlin: The Mark Twain Prize, and I was wondering if the comic had any children following in his footsteps?

Carlin, who died of heart failure at age 71 in June 2008, has one daughter, Kelly, 45, who is not following her father into the comedy business. "I got the funny in my DNA, but I certainly never wanted to be a stand-up," she says. "No thank you. I could not do that." She is, however, writing a book about her life with her father. "It was a crazy rollercoaster ride filled with lots of love, lots of laughs and lots of insanity."
