    as a younger listener i don't get it at all

    i don't get how the screaming is funny or fun in any way what so ever.

    it actually kinda stupid

    maybe its something that you had to be there at the time to get it.

    i dunno

    but i won't be listening to it all this week
    guess i'll listen to convino and ricky in the mornings as they suck each others cocks


    sup

    lol
    wut

    His screaming on the show and his screaming in his stand up were different. During his stand up the scream was the extenuation of the punchline to his joke. On the show it was just his trademark noise.

    I was a kid when Kinison was the thing. All I remember was alot of screaming and not understanding what was so funny about it. Im too lazy to check out old clips to see if he was funny.

    Screaming is boring, but Kinison really didn't do much of that while on stern. Mainly it was just Him and Stern shootin the shit and hangen out.

    I have never posted in the Howard forum, so this should be very exciting very everybody.

    Kinnison was mediocre, but highly over rated.


    As for listening to the specials this week, why would anybody do that, hasn't Howard replayed that stuff over like a million times.



    lol wut

    Just look at this set he did at HBO's Young Comedian Special in 1984. This was his first national exposure. Brilliant and original.

    If you like that, check out his HBO special Breaking the Rules from 1987.

    Sam at his best.

    It's generational...Kinison was brilliant during his time but even with that being said, I know I can't even come close to listening to five days worth of Sam...
    A day or two??? I could do that, but five days worth was a dumb move...

    Maybe it's generational. I liked the way he punctuated pch lines with the scream. I sometimes slip into kinisonisms with my buddies.
