For Sam Kinison fans, today is a big deal.
This afternoon at 3 p.m. ET, SiriusXM will premiere an enhanced amateur recording of the comedian’s final stand-up performance. The broadcast will take listeners back to the Grove Theatre in Upton, Calif., circa-March 1992. To set the scene, the broadcaster will also air, beforehand, a special Comedy Greats documentary:
Hosted by SiriusXM’s Ron Bennington, the documentary will include interviews with Louie Anderson, Andrew Dice Clay, Josh Gad, Kevin Hart, Barry Katz, Carl LaBove, Marc Maron, Jackie Martling, Jimmy Shubert and Mitchell Walters.
“Sam Kinison was one of the most influential and distinct voices in comedy, and was taken from us far too soon. This stand-up special and documentary will give fans new insight on the legendary comic, and is a great jumping-off point for those who were less familiar with his inimitable brand of humor,” said Jack Vaughn, senior vice president, comedy programming, SiriusXM.
Today’s premiere follows a similar combo of a Bill Hicks documentary and never-before-heard performance packaged and presented on SiriusXM earlier this year. Comedy Greats can be found on Channel 94.
