  1. Excellent post which strikes a real chord with me. Some of the greatest comedians of all time- Seinfeld, Crystal and Rock refuse to do college campuses anymore. It’s no fun for them because true comedy pushes limits and the audiences will not tolerate this.

    Anyone ever see the late Sam Kinison? I did at the Sunset Strip in 1989 with my little bro who had just been “discarded” by his girlfriend. Somehow, he managed to get her phone number from H and called her up live on stage.

    “You b****!” he screamed in front of the audience and we were all too stunned to laugh. For a second.

    The most hilarious ending to this story is that Sam was formerly a Pentecostal preacher. 🙂

  2. What’s also funny is how liberal media is saying this new comedy special by Chapelle is lousy, trying to dampen enthusiasm about it – they just cannot laugh at themselves, it’s obvious.

    Sam Kinnison would’ve made a great history professor:

    Mikey, great scene and even greater movie. I may have watched it a dozen times over the years due to the “respect” my husband has for the late, great Rodney Dangerfield. 🙂
