The other guy just doesn't get it
24 December 2005 | by southaustinartistSee all my reviews

Sammy was Sammy, plain and simple. Just like Lenny Bruce was Lenny and Tony Clifton was well... you know.

The other reviewer must be gay or otherwise married his high school sweetheart when they were sophomores because the crown in video is the call to the ex-girlfriend. ANY man who was ever been in a relationship with any woman has understands what it was about. Sammy said and did what we all wanted to say and do but couldn't because real life doesn't work that way. "No man ever made me want to crash my car into a brick wall," Sammy said.

Sammy was not the man in the video any more than Drew Carey was the character in the TV show, or Rodney was ever disrespected. It was all an act, an abstraction taken to extremes for entertainment.

Sammy was a traveling Evangelical preacher before Jim Bakker gave Christians a bad name. Comedy was Sammy's second career.

The part about the MS victim is serious. Millions of dollars are raised, but people still suffer. Celebrities raising money for charities is just plain wrong, since the money NEVER helps the people it's supposed to be raised for. Even Oprah exposed the (then) head of the Girls and Boy's club as living in wealth while the charity he led suffered. Hypocrisy ran thick in the 1980's and Sammy was just one person among many helping to expose it.
