Bill Hicks - Google Video

Note: If you don't think we live in a (thought) police state, consider the impossibility and perhaps even terrorism charges, a performance like this would net you in today's society. Consider the erosion of freedom since even 1990. But please, remember to laugh.

:LOL:

Peace.

I watched this last week as a matter of fact.
Gotta give props to him for telling the truth.

Love bill hicks, there is a docu about his life somewhere. He was probably the first comedian that didn't give a hoot about offending anyone without being predudiced!

If he found an audience that wasn't shocked by him then he would bring out 'goat boy'. He was hilarious and made some good points at the same time. RIP

BTW who has heard of someone so young dying from pancreatic cancer?

To think that the day this show was recorded was the day he discovered he had cancer. Imagine waiting in the wings to go on stage to make people chuckle with that on your mind. Very strong minded indeed.
debate is the vehicle of truth

His cancer was in remission - he thought he was going to recover and then it returned more aggressively than is ever found usually...same as with Bob Marley. 1000's of time beyond the norm. pathology of the disease.

Lenny Bruce was the first [i think]accredited as being provocative 20th century stand up.. from the 1960's . He has posthumously assailed as being part of a jewish conspiracy and alternatively that he didnt succumb to a barbituates overdose through misadventure but was rather "suicided" by the US govt. agencies for making to many waves...Lenny Bruce was pretty full on and tried to really incite people before winding them down.

A contemporary equivalent may be a stand up like Jerry Sadowitz the Glaswegian jewish sleight of hand magician/comedian who was knocked out on stage in Canada during a just for laughs(?) comedy festival within a minute or so of being on stage after the immortal words.
"Hello Moosefuckers"

All three of them great comedians and spikey as hell but Hicks was by far had the widest scope imo

Last night my friend asked me about Bill Hicks and... outside the Easter bit I never really found him THAT funny, kinda like Tupac, he coulda lived a much different life with his talents.

he melded observational comedy, surrealism, spirituality and political comment in a way never before seen.
It's fair enough that you didnt find him that funny but he was/is still an important figure. esp.

i thought he was funny as fuck

Bill Hicks was the best, imo. The only other comedian that even comes close is David Cross. But I liked Hicks POV way better.
