    I liked his material but not his delivery.

    Been a fan for years. We lost out on a lot of good material when he passed. In retrospect, seems like he was just peaking.

    Bill hicks is dope. Talking about a 4 year old getting sucked out an open 747 window mid flight..."look at that, the smaller he gets, the cuter he is. Since the window is open anybody mind if I smoke?"

    Insightful, but not terribly funny.

    His "Life Is A Ride" monologue is one of the greatest things ever though.

    Never really examined himself, which is something I prefer from my comics.

    It's also hard to judge him with so many artists copying him, but when I was 18 I fucking loved him.

    Absolutely loved his stuff when I was younger, still enjoy it today!
    One of the coolest people I've ever met was this super hot girl who drove me and my friends around while we listened to her Bill Hicks CD and drank and smoked too much.
    Making me nostalgic itt

    For the most part, the same people who ran the world a quarter of a century ago, are still running it today. Their interests haven't changed appreciably. Upper class still pawns middle/lower classes against one another. Is normal.

    I love his work. His bit on jay Leno is utterly hysterical.
