Sam Kinison Crucifixion Stunt

Recommended Posts

So apparently famous comedian Sam Kinison "crucified" himself across the street from The Comedy Workshop/Comedy Annex. Would anyone know where to find a picture of this?

Ok, given he was 26, it must have been '79, just prior to him moving to L.A. (and before his cocaine addiction)

 

Looks like someone on Reddit has the same idea (which you probably saw).

 

Wouldn't it have been 1980? Also yeah I saw the post on reddit which is what inspired me. I'm going to go check out the Physical Chronicle Archives soon to see what I can find.

Yeah, it would have been 1980 since he was born in December 1953, and it's unlikely that he did his stunt in the middle of winter. But according to Wikipedia, he went to L.A. to work at a comedy club called The Comedy Store. Wonder if this event helped precipitate his moving out of Houston and toward California. Certainly so if he was permanently banned, but it was only for two weeks...makes me wonder if he did something else that got him banned permanently.

I used to be a fan of Kinison back in the '80's.  I have never heard of this before. Couldn't find any pics or much about it at all on the web.
