As a massive Bill Hicks geek, I've always found it somehow ill-fitting that people call him the 'Rock 'N' Roll comedian'. Yes - he's dark & into his Rock, but it's like the sobroquet was stolen from another comic just to be pinned on him by others...

The good news is that Sam Kinison *is* the original Rock 'N' Roll comedian, from which Bill Hicks got many of his best ideas. He is brash, loud, offensive & not in the least bit intellectual - the perfect Rock 'N' Roll comic!

This CD consists of a 1988 performance in Orlando, Florida. Some of the references are a little dated although the experience of Sam Kinison in his prime is like no other comic & leaves you lamenting the fact he's gone.

***

To give you an idea of his comedy, here's a track listing:

1. 'Rock Against Drugs' - Sam's take on the (then) new Drink Driving laws & 'Rock against drugs' - "It's like having Christians against Christ!"

2. 'Rubber Love' - Sam takes great offence at the idea of wearing rubbers all cos 2 guys got bored & took to monkeys. Has a really funny bit where he yells "Guys, do we like rubbers???" (Crowd as one responds "No!!!") "We ******* hate 'em!!!!".
3. 'The story of Jim (Bakker)' - Has the added irony that no-one nowadays knows who he is, even though Sam insists the story was broadcast across 170 countries! Imagine Ted Haggard. But worse.
4. 'Robo-Pope' - In 1988, the Pope had just done a tour of the US in his brand new Pope mobile. "God will protect the Holy Father... But just in case..."
5. 'Mother Mary's Mystery Date' - Short routine about Jesus' birth & how Mary would be like "He's the Son of God!

What can you say about Sam Kinison? Something or you wouldn't be reading this review. He hates almost everything America has to offer, such a visionary 12 years ahead of everyone else. Legendary comedian Bill Hicks has oft been quotes as saying Kinison is a major influence on his short-lived career. Do yourself a favour listen to this CD when you are pissed off at the world and give yourself a pick me up. An angry young man. Who needs 1000 words to write this review when you can sum it up in however many words that is altogether.

There's nothing I enjoy more than anger mixed in irony 23 Dec 2004
By B. Holtzapple - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was just barely a teen when this record came out, but I think it helped shape my attitude through to this day. When you're young, angry and rebellious, saying things you shouldn't... well, it just comes naturally.

And Sammy was like a guru for the disaffected of any age. That trademark wail bellowing from an otherwise-average little man was Ginsberg's "Howl" personified, Whitman's "Barbaric yalp," the vented frustrations of a generation of culturally-confused men.

I haven't listened to this record in a long time; but I can still remember many of these tracks vividly. Opening with an attack on the social responsibilities just coming into vogue in the late 80s. Sam revels in his ability to drink heavily and operate heavy machinery (much has been said of the irony of this bit, given his future struggle with sobriety, cut tragically short by a drunk-driver).

Then come the tracks which are for me the most satisfying and side-splitting, Sam's takes on religion. The former preacher rails against the excesses and abuses of modern Christianity from the "Pope mobile" to the PTL scandal, and tells some very humanist versions of classic bible tales. My friends and I quote and reference these bits to this day.

Feeding off the bitterness of his failed past relationships, Sam goes into several tracks on women, marraige, and the ways men can avoid them. Finally closing with the made-for-MTV promotional cover tune, Wild Thing.

This record is a little cultural time-capsule for the 80s. Along with Andrew Dice Clay, Sam Kinison was a high-profile icon and magnet for controversy. Looking back on some of the material, it was clearly misogynistic, homophobic, and spiteful. Some of it still makes me uncomfortable, grating on the few politcally-correct nerves I possess. I've seen other Kinison reviews on this site praising the man but panning his more hateful material. But how can you separate them?

Best only to put them into context. Think of how very weird the 1980s were: the re-definition of gender roles, the outbreak and panic of AIDS, the push of gay rights, unmitigated materialism, reaganomics, cocaine. All of this served to completely deconstruct the self-view of the American male. Men had come out of the machismo of the 50s and 60s, survived the sexual revolution and the softer/gentler man of the 70s, then crash-landed in the contradictions of the 80s. Sam was not only a product of the times, his comedy gave voice to the growing pains of that decade. Talk about your fire-in-the-belly.

And who can deny that Sam took his place among the great comedians and social satirists. In my opinion, ranking only behind the venerable Bill Hicks (both launching thier careers from Houston, TX) as the most influential comic of the 80s/90s, without whom Denis Leary, Louis Black, and many other of my favorites wouldn't have careers (much less material).

And besides all this, I will always have a warm place for this record. It was the exchange of this cassette tape back in Spring of 89 in 8th-grade homeroom that began a friendship lasting all these 16 years. Last year I stood as best man to my best friend at his wedding. Thanks, Sam.

OH-OHHHH! 21 April 2000
By NewWorldSmurf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The only reason I didn't give this five stars was because nothing can touch Sam's first album, the hysterical "Louder Than Hell" (yes, it is out of print, but if your local record shop still sells cassettes you might get lucky). Sam Kinison was a true comic genius who would do material on stuff no comic would even dream of and make people laugh even when they were absolutely horrified at what he said. The phrase "Nothing's sacred" seems to have been invented for Sam Kinison. He was still in his prime when this album was recorded, and you will be convulsed beginning to end. Warning: Do NOT listen to this or any Sam Kinison recording while driving. I know of five people who have narrowly avoided or gotten into accidents because they were laughing so hard. Yes, I was one of them . . . . Rest in peace, Sam--you're still the best!

Sam Kinison - 'Have You Seen Me Lately?' (Warner Bros.) 5 Oct 2004
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This has got to be one of the top five best comedy releases of all time.The very first time I heard this album,I was LITERALLY rolling around on a friend's living room floor.I could not stop laughing for like maybe a week.Sam(R.I.P.)KNOWS about life.That's for sure.He may even see everything in a totally different light than the rest of us do.When I listened to this album for the next ten(10)times,it's like I could relate to about 90% of everything he was saying.Some lines from the lp(w/the swearing taken out):"Condoms....guys,do we hate rubbers?They're unromantic,they're uncomfortable and your tool doesn't understand what's going on...why the mask,boss?Are we doing a guy?Is she THAT ugly?"Another example:"I'm not afraid of hell,I was married from two years!!Hell would be a resort!If you go to hell when you die,you make the devil look like an over worked Ronald McDonald like character.He'll offer you a job as tour guide if you tell him you've been married twice.One more:"Jim Baker...can this loser pick THE women or what?He goes from Tammy Fae to Jessica Hahn.Jim's motto is no one can get into heaven without my personal seal,as I know God personally".You get the idea.A really great CD to play at a late night bash.

There will never be another like him 25 July 2005
By Donna Di Giacomo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Being used to all the political correctness that has run amok since the 80's, it would probably be shocking for folks in their teens and even early-20's to digest Sam Kinison's comedy: With every performance, he strove to break barriers, cross lines, and just did not care who he offended in the process.

Barriers and lines didn't exist in Kinison's world and his comedy reflects that. He was refreshing for his time and much of what he said then still rings true today.

I loved his take on religion and his constantly pointing out the blatant hypocrisy of tele-evangelists (oh, how he would have a field day in 2005!), even though he was a former Pentecostal preacher.

Sam was in a class all by himself. Many people like to group Andrew Dice Clay in with him but Kinison once said to Howard Stern that the Diceman was basically working his older material. I agree with that assessment. Clay was more into beyond raunchy humor (focusing on sex, sex, and more sex). Even though Kinison did his fair share of raunchiness, he also joked about many other topics as well.

I was only 16 when Sam died but I really miss that scream and his no holds barred attitude. I do get sad whenever I hear Anthrax's "I'm the Man" and hear that scream at the beginning and end of the song but Sam lives on through his comedy and his fans' love and appreciation of him.

A brilliant follow up... 5 Oct 2000
By Michael C. Barnes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Sam named this CD in response to Warner Brothers pulling his first CD 'Louder Than Hell' out of print. 'Have You Seen Me Lately' provides ample humor in an arena setting charged with a lively and animated crowd. Sam performs to the best of his god given ability, and the audience eats from his hand with an eagerness rarely captured on any recording. His subject matter ranges from the twisted to the almost sacreligious, but nobody but Sam could have discussed these in his act with the style and showmanship of an evangelical ex-preacher. Bad taste? Hardly! I think this recording is a look back into the prime of a great artist. Sam Kinison's death was a tragedy, and we lost him before he could reach his true potential. But recordings such as 'Have You Seen Me Lately' can remind us of how funny one man can be. It is well worth the investment for the laughs you'll experience over and over again.
