Why Haven’t I Seen Sam Kinison Recently? May 17, 2011

It occurred to me that I haven’t seen Sam Kinison recently. You know, the yelling, screaming, profane former evangelical preacher who became a yelling, screaming, profane comedian and a yelling, screaming, profane friend of Rodney Dangerfeld and Howard Stern.

{Note to self: when your friends include Rodney Dangerfeld, Sam Kinison and Howard Stern, it’s time to get a refund on your copy of How To Win Friends and Influence People.}

Well I found out why.

BECAUSE HE’S BEEN FRIGGIN’ DEAD AS A DOORNAIL SINCE 1992, THAT’S WHY!

Oh.

That long, huh? 19 years.

Yep, I believe he died when he fell asleep and his Corvette went off the road.

His greatest routine was about all the starving people in Africa. He said don’t send them food or money, send them U-Hauls. Nothing freakin grows in the dessert so get the hell out. He also noted that when they take close-ups of a starving child to break your heart and open your wallet, “why didn’t the cameraman give the kid a sandwich?”

Funny guy. He was the irreverant son of a minister.

Hi Bob!

Yeah, I read this morning that his car was hit outside of Needles, CA (been there – we Easterners all have) by a drunk 17 year old kid in 1992. Kinison was a hoot!

Check out his You-tube “Wild Thing” video; lots of famous people in it, including Jessica Hahn.
