1 min read


The estate of late comedian George Carlin has filed a lawsuit against media company Dudesy for using artificial intelligence to create a comedy special that impersonates Carlin’s iconic style. The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles, claims that Dudesy did not have permission to use Carlin’s likeness or copyrighted material for the AI-generated special. Carlin’s daughter, Kelly Carlin-McCall, has also expressed her disapproval, stating that the AI-generated Carlin is a poorly executed facsimile and calling for a line to be drawn in the sand regarding AI’s use in entertainment. The lawsuit highlights the need for control and restraint when using AI to prevent misuse and exploitation of existing creative works. Dudesy claims that its AI was used to create new jokes that Carlin might make in today’s world.
