Comedian Bill Hicks, who died in 1994 at 32 years old, was a brilliant American stand-up comedian, social critic, satirist, and musician. His unique comedy style and material largely consisted of general discussions about society, religion, politics, philosophy, patriotism and personal issues. He was never boring and is still more than relevant today:
I get a kick out of being an outsider constantly. It allows me to be creative. I don’t like anything in the mainstream and they don’t like me: Bill Hicks
Bill Hicks.. Do you remember him?
He was a truth teller but he did it with biting humor and satire.
It’s hard to forget him ~ particularly on Independence Day for he was in many ways, a true patriot.
Many consider him the best American humorist since Mark Twain.
He died too young of pancreatic cancer in 1994 but his work lives on.
Hicks sure was. He had a way of throwing hard reality at you and making you laugh at the same time ~ similar to Mark Twain.
I really miss Bill Hicks. If you don’t know who he was, these videos will let you know. If you knew him, I know you’re clicking on these right now.
You’ll be shocked at how clearly Bill Hicks saw the whole political game and how it was played ~ and that was over 20 years ago. With a few minor updates for today, he’d still be ahead of the cutting edge.
For example, Bill talks here about War, Freedom and what really makes him tick.
Bill also thought that most of our heroes were dead ~ and that included JFK.
” I love talking about the Kennedy assassination. The reason I do is because I’m fascinated by it. I’m fascinated that our government could lie to us so blatantly, so obviously for so long, and we do absolutely nothing about it. I think that’s interesting in what is ostensibly a democracy. Sarcasm – come on in. People say “Bill, quit talking about Kennedy man. It was a long time ago, just let it go, alright? It’s a long time ago, just forget it.” I’m like, alright, then don’t bring up Jesus to me. As long as we’re talking shelf life here.” Bill Hicks
So here’s Bill talking about a favorite subject ~ the JFK assassination
