#RIPBillHicks (Dec 16, 1961 – Feb 26, 1994)


It’s pretty difficult to think its been twenty years since a great American patriot, philosopher & stand-up comedian Bill Hicks died. For those who are unfamiliar with his art & comedy, do yourself a favor and seek it out. He was a shining light of truth in the darkness of Reagan America. He was a real comic’s comic who played from his fucking heart. His passion for justice & thirst for knowledge continue to inspire me on a daily basis. Sadly, much of what he railed against has only metastasized in the intervening years since his passing. When you listen to him talk about Bush I it could just as easily be about W.

There’s lots of  albums to listen to, loads of videos to watch and a great documentary (AMERICAN – THE BILL HICKS STORY).

This clip is a great introduction while also serving as a perfect distillation of his world view.
