What if Sam Kinison had hosted a game show?

KinisonThere's a funny post by Ken Levine over at his blog. He talks about how it seems that the goal of standup comics now is to host a game show. Think about it. Howie Mandel, Bob Saget, Jeff Foxworthy, Drew Carey. They've all gone from having sitcoms and dramas and doing standup to hosting network game shows like Deal Or No Deal and Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader. Ken wants sitcoms to make a big comeback, so the talents of comics can truly be showcased and not put into that game show personality machine that either makes them annoying or (even worse) lame and bland.

But what if Sam Kinison had hosted a game show? After the jump, Ken's very NSFW scene from a Kinison-hosted show.

No, you stupid bitch! $135.95 for a Hamilton Beach 4-slice toaster? Do you live in a FUCKING CAVE?! It's $42.99. It's a fucking toaster! It cooks up bread. How much do you pay for things? That shitty T-Shirt you're wearing on NATIONAL TELEVISION, how much did you pay for that? $4000?! Jesus, even the dumb motherfucker next to you was only off by ten bucks and he couldn't pour piss out of a boot if the instructions were written on the heel!

My first reaction is to say "I'd watch a game show that Sam Kinison hosted!" But I don't know if it would be funny after the first couple of episodes. Besides, if someone like Kinison, if you liked him, wouldn't seem as cool if he hosted a game show, so your enjoyment of the show would be impacted by that.

Oops, I meant, I don't know why there wasn't a second date. Could it have been that Sam was a but misogynistic?

I took a first date to a Sam Kinison concert. I don't know why there wasn't a first date . . . I thought he was incredibly funny. :(

I miss Sam, he was crude and lude, but funnier than anyone! I can't believe he's been gone 15 years.
