Sam Kinison on Jesus and Marriage

Kinison's appearance on HBO's featured Rodney Dangerfield's Ninth Annual Young Comedians Special in the summer of 1984 is widely considered to be his breakthrough performance. Later, during Kinison's appearance on Late Night with David Letterman, David Letterman's introduction of Kinison would prove to be prescient: "Brace yourselves. I'm not kidding. Please welcome Sam Kinison."

Kinison might be considered a "heavy metal comedian," since he was occasionally accompanied by a touring band; he also had a prodigious appetite for drugs and alcohol. In 1988, he recorded a novelty version of The Troggs' "Wild Thing." The record didn't make the Billboard Hot 100, but the video was a hit on MTV, featuring cameos from Steven Tyler and Joe Perry from Aerosmith, Slash, Billy Idol, rock guitarist Steve Vai, guitarist Frank Zappa's son Dweezil Zappa, Richie Sambora, Tommy Lee from Mötley Crüe, Robbin Crosby, Warren DeMartini and Stephen Pearcy of Ratt and a raunchy "roll on the mat" dance with Jessica Hahn. Sam hammered out some licks on a custom Stratocaster, with an airbrushed picture of his face frozen in his famous scream.
