Never heard this guy. Apparently he became some sort of icon recently?
The only Bill Hicks I know is the guy who sings "A Heart Dies Every Minute" during DOCTOR GORE. :)

If you like "thinking" comedy along the lines of Bruce, Carlin, Pryor, etc... then you should love Hicks.

been a fan (well, more of an acolyte) of bill since i drunkenly stumbled upon him on channel 4 in '93 (shit! 10 years...).
well worth an exploratory purchase. it's interesting to see just how many other comedians have riffed on or just blatantly ripped off bill's material. there's also a homage to bill in the simpsons - the episode where krusty becomes a bit of a radical comedian.
bill sometimes wrongly gets labelled as a liberal comedian - to all you red meat-eatin' maniacs i'd advise you to ignore that and give him a try.
Always that same LSD story, you've all seen it.
"Young man on acid, thought he could fly, jumped out of a building. What a tragedy."
What a dick, fuck him!
He's an idiot. If he thought he could fly, why didn't he take off from the ground first? Check it out.
You don't see ducks lining up to catch elevators to fly South. They fly from the ground, you moron. Quit ruining it for everybody. He's a moron, he's dead, good. We lost a moron, fucking celebrate.
Boy I just felt the world get lighter - we lost a moron.
Put on the Hammer album, I'm ready to dance!
"We lost a moron." I don't mean to sound cold or cruel or vicious, but I am so that's the way it comes out. Professional help is being sought.
How about a positive LSD story? Wouldn't that be news-worthy, just the once? To base your decision on information rather than scare tactics and superstition and lies? I think it would be news-worthy.
"Today, a young man on acid realised that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration. That we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There is no such thing as death, life is only a dream and we're the imagination of ourselves."
"Here's Tom with the weather."
