Bill Hicks


Watched a documentary on him this morning called "American - The Bill Hicks Story." I highly recommend it if you're a fan of his as it gave a lot of insight into who he was. I really liked it.

Bill Hicks is dead yet fucking Carrot Top lives. The world is an unfair place.

Check out the documentary, it'll give you a really wide sample of his material.

Hicks was one of the all time greats, definitely. The only problem is, a whole generation of comics decided they were going to emulate him, but forgot about the being funny part. I can't tell you how many times I had to dig out of a hole created by some shithead in all black who invariably blamed his laugh-free set on the audience "not wanting to hear the truth." No jackass, it's because you didn't have any punchlines.

I never met the man, but I know a lot of guys who worked with him years ago. They said he was a decent guy when he was sober.

I used to love Denis Leary's stand up routine, but then somebody told me I should listen to Bill Hicks to hear the same material done right. I was really amazed at how much material Leary lifted directly from Hicks' act. After hearing Hicks I never had any interest in listening to Leary again.
