One of the funniest and most outrageous comics of the 1980's and early 1990's. The definition of politically incorrect. A former preacher, Sam left the ministry to become a stand-up comic. He tackled subjects such as marriage, religion, homosexuality, world hunger and necrophilia.
He exploded on the scene as a result of his show-stealing performance on a Rodney Dangerfield HBO young comic special and became a near overnight sensation after having a rough time getting started in Los Angeles.
Best known for his bitter sense of humor and hellish scream, he's one of the best comics of the 20th century. Sam was killed in April of 1992 when a truck hit his car head on. He died shortly after at the scene in the company of his brother Bill, his new wife Malika and his best friend Carl LaBove.
Thanks to Bill for gathering the information and putting together a great biography of Sam Kinison. A fantastic book about the true icon for political incorrectness.
