Sam Kinison: Breaking the Rules (2000)

Since today would have been Sam Kinison's birthday I thought it was appropriate to review one of his insanely good HBO comedy specials. You know you're watching a great comic when something originally filmed 23 years ago still seems relevant and still cracks you the f*** up. I threw this on and was completely blown away by how funny, offensive and provocative Kinison was throughout. He really was an evil genius. No subject is too taboo for him to talk about (he actually explains that during this special) and no one can touch his style.

His stand up is so full of contrast. One minute he is calmly explaining something in a way that just about any rational person could agree with and the next he is combining the alphabet and cunnilingus. There wasn't anyone like him then, there isn't anyone that can touch him now and I doubt anyone could ever match the brilliance that is Sam Kinison. If there aren't any kids around and you don't mind having your Christian sensibilities assaulted then please, watch this special.
