A Very Funny Man Who is Missed by Many
Michael Crane | Orland Park, IL USA | 07/28/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Love him or hate him, Sam Kinison was a comic genius, and was extremley talented at what he did. Sure, he might've offended many and raised some eyebrows, but that's what he wanted to accomplish. Sam was one of a kind all right, and this DVD does him justice.I have the tape, but I was glad that it came out on DVD. First off, the picture looks really good. It was a pretty old performance, too. And there's some cool extras. Like never before seen material, which is really hillarious. This is a must-have if you love Kinison.This is a great performance. Through yelling and engergetic story-telling he talks about marriage, drugs, being arrested (thanks to his ex-wife), pleasing women (in a way I cannot describe on this site,) and much, much more. He's always able to make me laugh, even if I feel guity afterwards.Sam was a true genius. It's too bad he's not around. So many talented people have died to quick and left us all too soon. Kinison was a one-of-a-kind, and no one will ever be able to duplicate him. That IS a fact.We miss you, Sam! R.I.P."
Both Funny and Sad

"No comedian ever made me laugh as much as Sam Kinison did the first time I saw him perform on a Rodney Dangerfield special. The infamous Ethiopian UHaul rant is probably the funniest bit I have ever seen. His appearances on Rodney's other shows were generally pretty terrific as well as well as his turn in "Back to School".He was so successful with Rodney's shows that that HBO gave him his own night, which is the main feature of this DVD. It's classic Kinison and no topic is taboo. It's pretty crass and if you are easily offended, it's not for you. His highlights include a very funny rant about being dead (and I'll go no farther, but trust me, it's a blast).The main program, which was filmed in 1987, runs about 50 minutes is fun. However, also included are bonus clips of Sam doing standup what appears to be several years later (I couldn't find anything that stated the year it was done). Here you can see what the life of excess drugs and booze had done to Sam. He looks worn out, strung out and burned out. He's not funny. In fact, his rants are more filled with hate than humor, in particular one related to Jerry Lewis and his "Kids" with muscular dystrophy. And there aren't a whole lot of laughs from the crowd. It's a sad commentary on the man's life that I question why it was put on the disc.But, if you liked Sam, you'll enjoy reliving a few minutes of the glory days of his humor."

"This is a MUST buy for all Sam Kinison fans. We miss you Sam, but thankfully your spirit will live on in the dvds provided for our entertainment. Every time I listen to Sam Kinison I can gurantee you I will be having respitory problems after the show is over, due to all the laughing you get out of this guy! This particular dvd is one of my favorites. So if you're a newbie to Sam's work or a fellow fan and you don't have this, BUY IT! IT'S 110% WORTH IT!GOD BLESS YOU SAM, WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOU!"

"Kinison in top form. DVD looks great with some bonus footage of a later show when he was obviously strung out on drugs big time. Sad to see him like that. The only thing that disappointed me was the fact this is written up on the back of the DVD as a 'Never before released concert' but is actually the same exact show as the HBO tape in the yellow cover that was released in the 80's. A must have in the collection to show your friends who have never heard of Kinison. R.I.P. Sammy!!"
