I'm not religious, but if I should follow anybody, here is the guy... Call him a stand up, and i won't oppose you. Call him one of the greatest speakers ever, and I will agree totally. He is brave, he is clear sighted... and he is FUNNY! "Sane Man" is some of his best work. One of the videos I see most often. ...and every time I laugh and think... He inspires!!! He is angry, he is funny, he is direct... He is REAL! And that is a seldom quality. He is on a quest in which he believes. Against fake religion, against fake politicians, against fake beliefs in general... ...and he will say anything if it's true to him, no matter the consequences.
If you wanna do yourself a favor, order the "Bill Hicks - Satirist, Social Critic, Stand Up Comedian - Live" DVD from Ryko. It features 3 great shows + a documentary. It will give you a magnum dose of humor and reality. As fresh now as when performed. If I was Bill Gates, I would buy a copy for every living human... And throw a DVD player in as an extra bonus! ...and a 14" TV + lots of batteries. The message: Watch!!!!
I'm from Denmark, and has never experienced a lot of what he talks about. Still, his words and messages hits me hard! ...so don't use that as an excuse. "He is talking about America". No, he is just talking... And about stuff you should hear. No matter who and where you are...
I would write more, but i can't describe his greatness accurate, so i will give up now, and BEG you... BEG! Check out Bill Hicks. ...and if you don't like him, i have some M.A.S.H. DVD's I wanna sell you.
