After spotting a Bill Hicks quote on another posting I feel the need to revisit some of his work. Does anybody have any Bill Hicks I can have a listen to?

For those of you who have not heard of him here are a few samples of the mans unquestionable genius.


I was in Fyffe, Alabama last year. After the show, I went to a Waffle House. I'm not proud of it, I was hungry. And I'm eating, I'm alone and I'm reading a book, right? Waiter walks over to me:

"Hey, what you readin' for?"

Is that like the weirdest fucking question you've ever heard? Not what am I reading, but what am I reading for.

"Well, God damn it, you stumped me. Why do I read? Hmm I guess I read for a lot of reasons, and the main one is so I don't end up being a fucking waffle waiter."

But then, this trucker in the next booth gets up, stands over me and goes:

"Well, looks like we got ourselves a reader."

"What the fuck's going on here? It's not like I walked into a Klan rally in a Boy George outfit, God damn it. It's a book!"

and another ....


Actually, I'm against drugs being legalized, and this is why. Last weekend, my friend and I went into a farm, took some mushrooms, and we sat on a field. I looked up into the sky and saw God. He told me that there is nothing to fear, that he loves every single creature on this planet, and he showered gifts of forgiveness and love onto the Earth, and I realized that there was nothing to fear, and I loved everything Now, if that isn't a bad thing for this country, I don't know what is. How can we continue to make weapons if we love everything?

But wait, you two Brits should know better! He's an AMERICAN, 'murican civilian! And as you fellas always say, "Yanks can't do humour and don't understand it, mate" ad nauseum, blah friggin' blah....

So what gives? Ah, I know, he takes the piss out of a America, okay that makes sense.

But on a serious note, he's one of my all-time faves too along with the thousands of other great 'murican comedians. Someone's done a MySPace page on him with lots of audio clips here:

RH, I'd like to make a copy of that MP3..

Bill was a true world citizen. A denizen of all our dark sides. And he liked his porn. "Uh Mr. Hicks are you familiar at all with a video series called Clam Lappers volumes one through ninety?......All of them!?"
