Was watching that earlier knew it'd be good. Comedy central in the UK have stopped showing Jon Stewart for some reason which was already shit but even worse now that Trump is in the election.

if anyone is bored today..

back story: two american comedians in the 80s, sam kinison & bobcat goldthwait, were often confused for one another because they had a similar angry, shouty act.

this upset kinison because he believed he was the original and that goldwaithe was ripping off his act.

kinison appears on the howard stern show and they phone goldthwait up so that the two comics can try to sort out their differences. it doesn't go well.

kinison dies in a car crash a few years later and goldthwait spends the next 20+ years publicly saying that kinison was a homophobic, misogynistic bully and he's glad that he died.

Kinison just sounds incredibly bitter about how things worked out for him. Seems like typical of a lot of comics who ruin there careers with drugs and drink.

he's completely wasted.

his drink problems were well documented but, apparently, he rarely ever drank or got fucked up when he appeared on stern's show. he must have been at a particularly low ebb around that time.

Of course he's wasted he was an absolute mess. He is talking about not getting movies, etc but surely it was mostly because he was liable to turn up off his head. Wonder what he'd be like if he was alive today, obviously he'd have to be clean. Can't imagine a clean Kinison being very funny.

no it couldn't have worked.

to be honest, i'm not really a fan of his. everybody harps on about that scene he has in back to school but it didn't really do a great deal for me. i don't think he was nearly as talented as a lot of people seem to remember but then again i wasn't in and around that comedy scene at the time. dangerfield obviously thought he was pretty great.

I don't like him either. That whole scene seemed to be way behind British stand up at the time.

This is pretty cool, 1000 singers, guitarists, bassists and drummers performing Foo Fighters.

So Bernie Sanders is pretty cool. Has there ever been a Jew in the white house?
