Editorial Reviews

Sam Kinison is and always will be in a league of his own. Loud, abrasive and shockingly honest with his viewpoint, Sam showed that comedy can be found in ANY situation. Sam introduced us to Stand-Up routines that were frequently combined with friends in the Rock N Roll business. An enthusiastic musician, Sam frequently brought his guitar with him on stage. This collection Sam Kinison: Wild Child captures Sam at his best. Hilarious and appalling, endearing and profane...Sam was one of a kind.

While i've seen most of the shows on this package there were a couple of really nice surprises.I had never seen the Las Vegas show,so that was a huge bonus,plus the extra material in New Jersey at Rascals were awesome as well.The Tribute section was basically his best routines from his best shows put all together with some added commentary from his brother Bill and Rodney Dangerfield at the beginning.Still great stuff.If your not familiar with his work this would be a perfect introduction as it is almost a complete compilation of his work.And at the prices i'm finding for online it's a downright steal.Over 6 hrs. of Sam!!! Hard to believe but true.Most fans of Sam would probably already have most of this material,but diehards will want it for the Rascals alone.Hard to believe he's been gone for so long....Sam,you are missed.

WHAT'S MISSING: Although I'm a big fan, I'm not a completist, so to be honest, I'm not sure. Most notably, I think his HBO special "Banned" is missing, and I'm not sure whether this set has all the extras from the other dvds or not. I'll leave that to the other hardcore fans to fill in.

I do know that at $7.87 plus shipping, it's far and away the best Kinison value currently on Amazon.

I love Kinison, but only glimpses of his brilliance are afforded in this 2-CD set. This is mostly latter career big stage rock and roll and cursing crudeness, not the dazzling originality and brilliance he exhibited early on in clubs. There is far too much of same material, different day here as well, with many versions of the same (and certainly not his funniest) routines over and over again.

There are two discs to this set - the first one was great, the second not so much; it was a disappointment. Filmed in the years immediately before his death, his delivery was sporadic, nothing made sense, and he tended to focus on obscenities
rather than content. Number 1 disc is older and more of what we expected of Sam Kinison.

Sam Kinison: Wild Child
If you are familiar with him, then this will likely be a favorite of yours, as it has come to be for me. If you are new to him, you should know that this guy was known for nasty, put it in your face humor about sex: having sex, giving sex, sex in marriage, sex, sex, sex. This would probably be rated X for language. He does not beat around the bush! If you are easily offended, this would not be for you. But, if you like this type of humor, you will always be laughing. I saw him in person, in Atlanta, at the Fox Theatre, before he was killed in a vehicle wreck, while on his way to a gig. Sam's timing is impecable and his words are carefully chosen to deliver a great laugh. This man rolled with traveling preachers in his humble beginning which gave him a great start getting and keeping the attention of his audiences. At the end of his life, he also rolled with heavy metal bands. And, in this performance, Sam shows that he can also play guitar with them. He is also known for making fun of marriage and the women who gave him heartache. He tells about life as we know it...at any age...at any decade of time, his remarks are relavent. Since he is gone, this is the best way to remember him. Rock on.

I bought this because I remembered Kinison from years ago. I actually forgotten how foul he could get. If you're offended easily, you may not like Sam's style. An Ex-Preacher, turned comedian. It's too bad he didn't live longer. If your open-minded, then I think you'll want to check this out!

For Sam Kinison fans--as well as fans of aggressive-angry-insulting comedians from Don Rickles to the Comedy Central Roasters to Howard Stern--this nearly complete 2-DVD set is definitely worth the inexpensive price. Covering Sam's too-brief career from the mid-1980s to the early 1990s, it contains Sam's first HBO special 1987's "Breaking The Rules" and 1991's "Family Entertainment Hour", both of which are great shows. It also contains 1990's "Outlaws of Comedy" and 1991's "Live In Las Vegas", the latter of which is mostly redundant in terms of comedy material. My only real complaint is that Sam's breakthrough performance from the 1985 HBO "9th Annual Young Comedian's Special", hosted by Rodney Dangerfield, appears on the 2nd DVD "Brother Sam: A Tribute to Sam Kinison" in a poor quality, edited video clip. Truth be told, I prefer Sam's earlier work from the 1980s when he was still a hungry comedian on the rise, more than his later work in 1990-92 when he was already famous and adopted his "Rock-N-Roll" comedian persona.

The most glaring omission from this 2-DVD set is "Banned", which was recorded in 1990 as Sam's second HBO special, but was not aired on HBO. "Banned" is difficult to find on DVD and contains all three of Sam's music videos--cover versions of the Trogg's "Wild Thing" with Jessica Hahn and various 1980s heavy metal stars; the Rolling Stones' "Under My Thumb" with Ozzy Osbourne and David Faustino #aka Bud Bundy#; and Mountain's "Mississippi Queen". I suppose a completely comprehensive DVD set of Sam's comedy career would also require video from his appearances on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and Late Nite with David Letterman, his two appearances on Saturday Night Live, his cameo role as the history professor in Rodney Dangerfield's film "Back To School", and his role as Al Bundy's guardian angel in the two-part "Married...With Children" Christmas episodes.
