Comedian Ralphie May on opening for Sam Kinison at age 17

There are many comedians with jaw-dropping Sam Kinison stories. And, trust me, ALL of these stories are jaw-dropping, because Sam, let’s be honest, was a total f–king maniac. But this story by Ralphie May is particularly funny, especially because he was only 17 at the time. This is one of my favorite stand-up crash-and-burn stories of all time. God bless Sam … and God bless Ralphie May, for that matter. Ralphie May has edged out a VERY VERY funny stand-up career in the years since.
