Hicks at his finest
10 October 2006 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

What can I say that hasn't been said before? Well, here goes! Bill, you sorry sack of sh*t, bet your not laughing now, huh!!? Well, that about raps it up for whats not been said before! And now on to the more important stuff! If any fans of comedy haven't seen Sane Man, I implore you to buy it right now, buckle yourself in and get ready for one of the most outrageous and rib tickling experiences of your life! This is Bill Hicks at his most PC offencive and anarchic best. The bit about Debbie Gibson, Tiffany and Jimmy Hendrix....possibly the funniest skit I have ever heard in my life! He was the comedic Frank Zappa! Erm, apparently I'm suppose to write ten lines of this crap! Well, i cannot be bothered to write anymore, so I will just press one key for a few more lines, OK! H I C K S I S G O D !!
