At the end of the schedule, for the time being, is a multi-week run at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas. Carlin said he does 12 weeks per year at the venue, although we’re only counting 14 shows right now, which means he could possibly expect to return for another round of laughs.

Last year, Carlin won a Grammy for his Napalm & Silly Putty book on tape/CD. It was his fourth such award. The book version of the project went on to spend 20 weeks on The New York Times bestseller list.

According to a post by Carlin on his self-maintained Web site, he’s working on plans for the “first one-man Broadway show, ‘Watch My Language,'” which he expects will open in fall of 2004. The 90-minute show centers around the theme of language and speech in America.
