Personal Quote:

You don't know what a rough crowd is. If all I have to do is go make people laugh, that's nothing. Let me tell you what a tough crowd is. A tough crowd is going to a morning service and you got six people there and you gotta pat your house payment. That's a tough crowd. See more »

Trivia:

The long grey coat Kinison often wore early in his career actually belonged to Richard Widmark. Kinison was friends with Widmark's daughter and took the coat from his house. See more »
