Have a happy Jesus day, winter solstice, Chanukah, mushroom day or whichever you celebrate this season and New Year. Enjoy the Bill Hicks video clips.
Hicks is often compared to Lenny Bruce (although he frequently denied knowing much about Bruce’s life or work) and Sam Kinison (a contemporary and friend). Comedian Richard Pryor figured largely as an inspiration and stand-up idol for Hicks, as did Woody Allen who also served strongly as a very early influence for a pre-teen Hicks. Like Lenny Bruce, Hicks challenged formal and informal forces of censorship, and suggested a disconnect between the values and operations of modern life, particularly in the United States, a country toward which his humor frequently adopted a tone ranging from cynicism to scathing critique. Hicks characterized his own performances as “Chomsky with dick jokes”. – Wiki
