Comedy Central presents Back From Hell: A Tribute to Sam Kinison

Comedy Central presents Back From Hell: A Tribute to Sam Kinison



Synopsis: Sam Kinison, a former Pentecostal preacher turned beret-wearing, bad-boy comedian, is the focus of this tribute from a galaxy of comedic talents who analyze his hard living and the rage-filled comedy that took the entertainment world by storm. Jay Leno, Denis Leary, Chris Rock and others discuss their friendships with him and his unusual but perceptive humor, while clips of Kinison performing live illustrate how effective his screaming style was.

Review: Sam Kinison is a comic legend.  In his wake he left a gap in the stand-up comedy world that has never truly healed.  He was a party animal and an outspoken maniac.  He had a universal appeal that drew in all types of people from all walks of life.  He was a hero to some and a crass troublemaker to others.

This new DVD chronicles Sam's life and work with clips of his stand-up bits and interviews from other famous comedians from Chris Rock and Dennis Leary to George Lopez and Ron White.  You get a great feel for his impact on the industry and how much he is still missed.  We highly recommend this one.

Interest Range: Stand-Up Comedy, Documentary
