    I recently got introduced to this legends comical style, and spent a most entertaining drive home listening to a couple of recorded cd's. After driving for almost 2 hours of tears laughter and utter shock, this man was the funniest guy to ever grace the stage.

    If some of you have not heard any of his stuff, I totally recommend him, he is very close to the mark, so be warned. But.....if you have a sick SOH like mine, he will have you in stitches in a matter of minutes.

    RIP Hicks!

    There are a couple of guys floating about here with hicks sigs. If you like bill hicks then I recommed you look for some George Carlin, similar style and just as funny.

    Big Hicks fan here. Revelations is a superb DVD if you can get hold of it :)

    Also - see if you can get a copy of the 'Loses it' session - believe it was in front of a live audience in Chicago, he got a mite fed up at being heckled. Highly entertaining :D

    Very very funny. Have watched or listened to quite alot of his shows.
    He could have done with expanding his material though, as a lot of it was quite heavily repeated.
    I think that the Revelations video is one of his best.

    The Sane Man DVD is worth a look. I miss him, and would love to hear his take on the world today.
    "Oh goat boy you shaggy old smelly thing you :D " RIP Bill

    Saw him play in Newcastle many years ago - simply amazing.

    A great loss to comedy.

    Another Hicks fane here :)

    His "Flying Saucer" CD hasn't left my car yet. Seen 2 of his live shows also

    It's true that some material was repeated somewhat, but he is still a legend imo

    Oh yes. Love his stuff - especially the JFK assination. :D

    Used to have a Hicks sig - but got complaints about it. ;)

    George Carlin is fabulous as well.

    Can't listen to either while driving anymore..

    Holds hand up as a Bill Hicks fan

    Must go out and buy some of his videos etc have some of his live shows on the puter, Genius.

    Frightening too though I only found out about him a couple of years ago, was listening to a recording and cracking up, then realised he was talking about the 1st gulf war... His jokes were still sooo relevant it was scary!
