“Sam Kinison Sings “Are You Lonesome Tonight” And Sits Down With Johnny – Carson Tonight Show
Original Airdate: 05/24/1989″
It’s curious that Sam was not an atheist…because his metamorphosis from pentecostal preacher to stand up comedian, feels totally in line with becoming an atheist.
It’s curious that Sam was a pentecostal preacher, who didn’t really stop believing…but expanded into more of a dual, seemingly contradictory person.
I remember quite well back then…People found it a head trip, that Sam had been a preacher…and pentecostal, at that…
…Even in the baptist church, we considered the pentecostals to be crazy extremists…That’s saying a lot.
