Hicks final interview live on public access television!
1 May 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is Bill Hicks' LIVE final televised interview where he appeared on the Austin, Texas public access television show CapZeyeZ, hosted by Metal Dave. He appeared on this interview prior to his performance at the Laff Stop at which his album "Rant in E Minor" was recorded. With this interview we are privileged with some of Hicks' intuitive criticisms and "fresh" material, by which I mean stuff that isn't included in the video and audio recordings of his stand-up acts, including his perspective toward his censored performances on Letterman which were deemed "unsuitable" for the audience- due to jokes he made about pro-life (who advertise during Letterman's show- hence the name...United States of Advertising). In the latter half of the show Hicks takes call-in questions from audience members most of who ask the same damn question, though a couple ask questions that illicit some hilarious, critical and intuitive responses from Hicks. Some (like the guy from metal band Ed Gein) prove that Texans are among the most ignorant of all Americans, with Hicks being an exception of course. A comment near the beginning of the interview and jokes about his friends from Austin provide evidence for his resentment of being considered a "Texan" (or American in general). This is an amazing and entertaining interview that can't be missed by any Hicks fan. He truly is the most brilliant comic to have ever lived and graced humanity with his thoughts.
