{     Bill Hicks- Satirist, Social Critic, Stand-Up Comedian     }    

billhicks.jpg This is the first official DVD release from the late stand-up comedian Bill Hicks. This contains three classic performances �One Night Stand� from Chicago, �Revelations� from London, and �Relentless� from Montreal " which feature Bills brash sense of humor that earned him comparisons to Lenny Bruce and Sam Kinison. Hicks died in 1994 long before he ever got a chance to rise to stardom and one thing i�ve noticed is that there is alot of talk of Bill�s in-your-face humor, however not enough is mentioned about how he was a thinking-mans comic (a la George Carlin). His abrasive humor shines in a bit where he calls non-smokers "obnoxious, self-righteous slugs" and there is plenty of Bush bashing (Bush senior) as well. In addition, there are also poigniant moments when he talks of how we can end world hunger. Accompanying this disc is a touching 40 minute documentary titled �It�s Just A Wild Ride� which features family and friends (David Letterman, Jay Leno, Eddie Izzard, and Richard Jeni) reflecting on Bill�s life and work. This is a perfect introduction to those who haven�t seen/heard Bill Hicks material. - Written by Jay, read more of his reviews at Caffeine-Headache.net.

i always found it puke-inducing that leno and especially letterman came crawling out to 'celebrate' bill, when letterman had censored him and leno (his great friend) had done nothing to support him. sychophantic, unctuos and fawning. skip the bandwagon-jumping celebrity interviews and go straight to bill.
