Part of the greats
30 August 2000 | by MisterWhiplashSee all my reviews

Sam Kinison was a great comic genius. Not because he was terrific or odd, but because he was like Andrew Dice Clay with a political touch. And, he is very funny, and this special proves it if you don't believe me. Kinison not only brings to the stage talk about Jesus, Sweatin to the Oldies, Bad TV and Women, he also has a band. If this isn't a laugh out loud special, nothing is. So just remember what Kinison says- AHHHAHHHHAHHHH! A+
