Celebrities - Bill Hicks

William Melvin "Bill" Hicks (December 16, 1961 to February 26, 1994) was an American stand-up comedian. His humor challenged mainstream beliefs, aiming to "enlighten people to think for themselves." Hicks used a ribald approach to express his material, describing himself as "Chomsky with dick jokes." His jokes included general discussions about society, religion, politics, philosophy and personal issues. Hicks' material was often deliberately controversial and steeped in black comedy. In both his stand-up performances, and during interviews, he often criticized mediocrity and banality within the media and popular culture, describing them as oppressive tools of the ruling class, meant to "keep people stupid and apathetic." Hicks died from pancreatic cancer in 1994 at the age of 32

1 If only he was alive long enough, I really would like to have seen more of his work. It just seemed that from the stuff I've seen of him. Not a lot of people could grasp some of his comedy, I think it was because he was ahead of his time and they weren't prepared. Conspiracy nuts have the audacity to think that Hicks is still alive through the persona that is Alex Jones. Alex Jones is your typical political whistleblower, conspiracist and whatnot. Bill Hicks is the exact opposite of that and is far too cooler than Jones. -- Submitted By: () on May 1, 2015, 3:40 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

3 Robert- you should listen to Bill if you havent- Check out "Arizona Bay" for starters. He was a prophet of things to come. Literally. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 1, 2012, 8:33 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I never knew about Bill Hicks until now. However, something struck me when I read the description: "He often criticized mediocrity and banality within the media and popular culture, describing them as oppressive tools of the ruling class, meant to "keep people stupid and apathetic." Almost 20 years after his death, these words ring truer than ever. Shows have gotten worse, and people are so used to it that it's considered "normal". It may be a clue as to what he might have said about the Scottish site. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on March 31, 2012, 1:57 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote

6 One of the top 3 funniest comedians of all time. This guy never came newar slaw vinegar or hush puppies. I would pay cash money to hear his take on things like the "Scottish Site" and things like "American Idol". RIP Bill Hicks- you were a one of a kind classic. And if you never of this guy, check him out. NOW!!! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on July 19, 2009, 7:05 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
