Sam Kinison and His Legendary Scream at Dangerfield’s Comedy Club (1986)

“If you’ve seen him before, you’re gonna want to see him him again. And if you haven’t seen him before, you’re gonna get a kick out of Bad Sam.” Rodney Dangerfield welcomed Sam Kinison and his legendary scream to the stage on his 1986 HBO special, “It’s Not Easy Bein’ Me”.

In 1985, HBO offered Rodney a deal to do a show from his Dangerfield’s comedy club which would end up becoming “It’s Not Easy Bein’ Me”. It gave Rodney the opportunity to introduce his own selection of new comedians and give them their first shot on national television. The special included Sam Kinison and other unknown comics like Roseanne Barr, Jerry Seinfeld, Robert Townsend, Jeff Altman and Bob Nelson.
