Comedian Bobcat Goldthwait is not dead. Sam Kinison is the other popular comedian from the 1980s who liked to shriek. Kinison died in an automobile accident in 1992. He was 38.
Goldthwait is now 52 years old. He cut his long hair and lost that high-pitched voice. He’s still doing stand-up and he’s been busy directing seven films. His latest is a documentary called ‘Call Me Lucky.’ It’s showing this week at Sundance. It’s about a comedian as an adult dealing with a history of child abuse. “It sounds dark but it’s actually very uplifting,” Goldthwait said.
