Sam Kinison: Live In Vegas is a 1991 stand-up comedy film starring the late comedian Sam Kinison. The film, which is directed by Walter C. Miller, features Kinison's live performance at the prominent Sunset Strip comedy club, where he delivers a classic, no-holds-barred stand-up routine in front of an enthusiastic audience. The film begins with a montage of Las Vegas cityscapes and neon lights, as well as a brief introduction from Kinison's good friend and fellow comedian, Denis Leary. Following this, the film jumps straight into Kinison's uproarious routine, which is full of his signature screaming, ranting style of comedy.

Throughout the film, Kinison tackles a wide range of topics, from the absurdity of religion and the hypocrisy of politics to the pitfalls of relationships and the frustrations of everyday life. He also touches on more personal subjects, such as his own drug addiction and the rumors about his troubled marriage.

One of the most memorable moments of the film comes when Kinison launches into a scathing attack on the audience, calling them out for their lack of enthusiasm and challenging them to get more involved in his performance. This only serves to further energize the already-boisterous crowd, who cheer him on even more fiercely as he continues his performance.

Another standout moment in the film is Kinison's riff on the movie E.T., in which he imagines the alien as a foul-mouthed, beer-swilling, womanizing creature who would fit right in with the rowdy Vegas crowd. The routine is classic Kinison, blending his irreverent sense of humor with his keen observations on the strangeness of popular culture.

Throughout the film, Kinison's performance is supported by a backing band, who provide lively music and even add their own commentary to some of his routines. The film also features several interludes where Kinison talks to members of the audience, fielding questions and doling out advice in his trademark blunt style.

Overall, Sam Kinison: Live In Vegas is a hilarious and unapologetically crude showcase of one of the most unique and influential comedians of the late 20th century. While the film may not be suitable for all audiences due to its adult content, it remains a powerful testament to the lasting impact of Kinison's comedy and his enduring legacy as a cultural icon.

Sam Kinison: Live In Vegas is a 1991 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 11 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.6.
