Sam Kinison: Breaking the Rules is the stand-up comic's 1987 HBO special, filmed at the Roxy Theatre on Hollywood's Sunset Boulevard in front of a live audience. This performance is filled with sketches that showcase the long-haired, overcoat-wearing comedian's antic, anarchic, abrasive and often almost angry onstage persona. The onetime fire and brimstone preacher brings the same exuberance to the comedic stage that he did in trying to win converts. Breaking the Rules represents a breakthrough moment in a brilliant career that was cut short by the comic's death just a few years later. In this aptly named HBO special, Kinison doesn't just tackle taboo subjects; he rips them to shreds with his rapier wit. Before political correctness became a catchphrase, Kinison made it a point to spare no prisoners. Gays, Christians and women are frequent targets of his trademark rants, earning Kinison criticism as a misogynistic, homophobic anti-Christ. In Breaking the Rules, audiences are treated to iconic Kinison routines that dare to take on Christ's crucifixion and marital status, necrophilia and a sexual technique involving the ABCs.moreless
