Samuel Burl "Sam" Kinison (December 8, 1953 - April 10, 1992) was an American stand-up comedian and actor. Kinison was known for his intense, harsh and politically incorrect humor. A former Pentecostal preacher, he performed stand-up routines that were most often characterized by an intense style, similar to enthusiastic preachers, punctuated by his trademark scream. He died in a car accident on April 10, 1992.
Sam Kinison started off as a recurring special guest on Saturday Night Live and even got to host on the November 15, 1986 episode.
Bobby Moynihan also impersonated him on the October 30, 2010 episode in the "Back to the Future 25th Anniversary DVD" sketch.
