Sane Man is Bill's best performance ever caught on tape. Never before had I seen a comedian with so much great material, whose delivery was "on" for every second. Be warned: Bill Hicks ruins you for lesser comedians.
Though this concert was taped in 1989, his subject matter (drugs, sex, hypocrisy, advertising & consumerism), style, ideas, and humor hasn't become dated in the least. Watching his performance eleven years later I am humbled by how relevant, insightful, and unique his views were.
Watch this tape with some friends and be astounded by 80 minutes from the voice of reason of a man who had a lot to say, said it, and spiced it up with some great punchlines.
