Bill Hicks shows us his view on smoking, smoking pot, drinking, sex, advertisement and music. It's not a view you hear very often.

Bill Hicks is a comedian with a message. In his own words 'a message that is not heard very often.....but it's the truth'. Raw and outspoken, Hicks tells us alcohol and cigarettes are more harmful than marijuana. He also offers his view on the devil on records played backwards, kids who commit suicide after hearing Judas Priest material and he explains what causes sexual thoughts.

Perhaps the greatest stand-up set ever performed.
22 January 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's tight, hilarious and beautifully presented.

"I have never looked at an egg and thought it was a f*****g BRAIN." "If I was gonna legalize a drug, it wouldn't have been alcohol." Brilliant. He just splayed hypocrisy in two.

Without Hicks, the Nineties would have been a mistake. He was a dreamer. Not the only one, but there are so many conformists these days that I weep daily.

Some wait for the second coming of Jesus... I wait for Goatboys Comeback Special...

"One Night Stand" is available as part of the DVD, "Bill Hicks Live - Satirist, Social Critic, Stand-Up Comedian".
