Sam KinisonEPIX, a new premium cable channel announced that it will air a tribute show for the late comedian, Sam Kinison. Sam Kinison: Back from Hell will feature interviews and performances by Chris Rock, Kathy Griffin, Jay Leno, George Lopez, and Denis Leary among others.

“We’re excited to bring together some of today’s most talented artists to pay homage to Kinison. He was a ground breaker whose performances inspired so many,” said Mark Greenberg, EPIX President. Back From Hell will air on EPIX in February 2010. EPIX is quickly trying to secure itself as a serious stand-up comedy channel, having previously announced two other comedian specials: Lewis Black’s Stark Raving Black and Eddie Izzard’s Live from Wembley.

    Sam Kinison is hilarious. I love this guy. Its good to see so many great comedians coming together to honor him. On the other specials. Definitely check out Eddie Izzard’s live at Wembley Stadium. I watched this and was entertained the whole time. He is a great stand up comedian. Check out some clips from the show here… http://bit.ly/1qcEBt
