Sam Kinison's Louder Than Hell Personally Worn Costume & Album
An incredible rare find for comedian legend Sam Kinison -- his personally worn and owned wardrobe featured on the cover of his first album "Louder Than Hell" (1986) and also personally worn on air in his very first appearance on the television show, "Saturday Night Live" airing on December 7, 1985.

This incredible collection comes direct from his estate and also includes the "Louder Than Hell" record album and a rare photo-pin of the comic attached to his overcoat.

Sam's first album was revolutionary for its brash unapologetic humor, and this signature infamous charcoal grey two-button "Shang-Hai" overcoat and black beret as featured on the album's cover became his signature look. The traveling evangelist turned stand-up comedian was known for his screaming outbursts onstage and big-hearted teddy bear demeanor offstage. Sam also acted in the 1986 Rodney Dangerfield film "Back to School" and had his own HBO television special, Sam Kinison: Breaking the Rules in 1987. In 1988 his cover version of the Troggs' single "Wild Thing" was a hit frequently played on MTV, and in the same year his comedy album "Have You Seen Me Lately?" was nominated for a Grammy Award. Due to his ardent fan base, a biopic film about Sam Kinison starring Josh Gad is currently in development. According to Gad in his July 2015 interview on Sirius XM's Opie & Jim show, “We want to make sure it’s perfect, otherwise there’s no reason to do it. There’s too many Kinison fans out there, and the story is so wonderful that it’s sort of like, there’s so many elements that need to be right.”

A one of a kind rare collection from one of the world's best and most loved comedians.
