Audio: Sam Kinison’s Last Words 25 Years After His Untimely Death
SiriusXM's Comedy Greats channel releases 10 minutes of the comedian's final performance in tandem with new documentary and upcoming Comedy Dynamics box setAugust 8, 2016
It’s been almost 25 years since comedian Sam Kinison – the Stern Show’s original celebrity superfan – was killed in a car crash after being hit head-on by an underage drunk driver in California. But the larger-than-life shock-comic has not been forgotten.
According to Rolling Stone, Kinison will be featured in a new box set hitting shelves in September and will also be the subject of an upcoming audio documentary on SiriusXM’s The Comedy Greats (channel 94).
SiriusXM has released a previously unearthed 10-minute clip to go along with the doc, taken from the comedian’s final public performance before his untimely demise. The documentary airs at 3 p.m. on Aug. 12 and features commentary from several other comedians, including Andrew Dice Clay, Josh Gad, Louie Anderson, and Jackie Martling, according to Rolling Stone.
All of this comes just a few weeks before Comedy Dynamics — which Rolling Stone says distributed the audio to SiriusXM — releases a new Kinison box set called “The Definitive Comedy Collection,” containing rare material, a brand new video documentary, and several of the late comedian’s comedy specials.
