Bill Hicks was a comedic anomaly. Scathing and abrasive yet compassionate and empathetic, crass and obscene yet poetic and intellectual, Hicks’ raging philosophical humor could either ignite fires or quell them. Challenging regressive and hypocritical views in all forms, from the drug war to the Gulf War, blind nationalism to religious fanaticism, Hicks was at his purest when taking on the powerful and the ignorant. This posthumous release collects all of his stand-up comedy transcripts in order (and it’s fascinating to see how certain jokes and routines evolve over time) along with letters and song lyrics. ~ Reviewed by Joe Michon-Huneau
