Bill Hicks' Legendary One Night Stand, 1990


30 of the finest minutes ever broadcast on television. Bill Hicks had a powerful reality based view of our world, totally unaffected by the crap that swirls around us like smoke in a bar... he was funny, he was smart and he spoke out against the bizarre conditions which we found and still find ourselves in. I find it sad that I, embarrassingly, was unaware of this brilliant man until my best friend asked me if I knew of him... I'm glad she did... well, that's what I get for shutting the door on the aforementioned swirling crap and leaving no cracks for true light to shine through for so long. Note to self... leave the door ajar... there's always something wonderful out there.

I liked Bill Hicks very much; (his wife has a blog.)
Powerful juxtapostions there. Good post.

Thanks... he saw things just like I do... so I thought I'd put it up for the benefit of others that don't know of him. Carry on, then...

Hi. My name is Marlene. I love Bills Hicks and I think he was a great comedian. The best I know actually. Does anyone know if a french translation of his sketches exist? I am french and I would like my family and friends to listen to him. If someone could help me with that, it would be great.
Thanks
Marlene
