Bill Hicks (Comedian)

I apologize for not posting anything the last couple days. My Thanksgiving break just started so my friends and I drove from our university to home (northern california to southern california) and that took about 14 apologize hours. Now that I'm down here I'll keep updating daily.

Todays Post is about the comedian Bill Hicks, I had never heard of him until my friend showed me his standup a couple days ago. He is hilarious. His humor challenges mainstream beliefs and aims to "enlighten people to think for themselves". He is also good friends with the singer of the psycedelic rock band "tool", Maynard. I could give you an in depth article about his life but I doubt you guys would read it so I'm just going to post one of his stand up shows live and you can make up your mind about your view on him.



And here is a tool song that uses some recordings of him in the song



I strongly recommend going to youtube and listening to all the parts of the Bill Hicks Philosophy standup if you enjoyed the first video.

  10. I had always heard the Dennis Leary stole his material from Hicks, but I didn't believe it. Then I listened to Hicks and...yep, he stole his material. Hicks is funnier too :\
