Storyline

Outspoken and raw, not mincing matters, Bill Hicks tells us that, just like smokers, non-smokers also die every day - with jogging instructor Jim Fixx as an example -, asks women what's so terrible about giving head, talks us through what really happened during the 1990-1991 Gulf War and how the used technology could have also been used to feed the poor of the world. He also explains why it's true drugs have done good things for us, wonders in what mood Jesus will come back to earth if he decides to come back and, near the end of the show, most passionately yells music should be played with one's heart.

He wanted to be Jesus at His angriest...
16 April 1999 | by nospinSee all my reviews

Comedy is merely the hook on which Bill Hicks hangs a series of biting observations about subjects such as drugs and war and government.No cosy anecdotes about the colour of navel fluff to be found here. The high shock factor and skilled delivery almost disguise one of the most nakedly emotional performers of the last 20 years. Because of the depth and resonance of the material this is one of those rarities: a stand up performance that bears repeated viewings.

Relentless by name, Relentless by nature.
