The most strange part of Bill's work from over 12 years ago is that it rings true to this day. Check out his Bush material on "Arizona Bay" & see if it doesn't sound like a modern day comedian talking about George W.
As for "Sane Man" it is easily one of the Top Ten Funniest stand-up videos of all time. Watch it & call me a liar. You can't! It's on par with "Richard Pryor Live" (or "Live on the Sunset Strip")
His attacks are precise. His findings relevant. His timing perfect. He manipulates the microphone like no one else.
Tool fans will recognize Bill as the guy from the song "Third Eye" telling the "today a young man on acid..." story.
I loved Bill's work, miss him dearly & quote him AT LEAST once a week, hence my screen name for over seven years: BillHicksFan
