George Carlin’s estate reaches settlement over AI special impersonating late comedian


The estate of late-comedian George Carlin has reached an agreement with the co-hosts of the Dudesy podcast who used artificial intelligence to make a comedy special impersonating him.

The agreement comes roughly three months after Dudesy co-hosts Will Sasso and Chad Kultgen uploaded an AI-generated comedy special to YouTube titled George Carlin: I’m Glad I’m Dead, which featured a voice impersonating Carlin. Under this agreement, an injunction will be entered preventing Dudesy from uploading their comedy special in the future and to take down the video from YouTube; the agreement also forbids the two podcast hosts from using Carlin’s voice or likeness without getting permission from Carlin’s estate.
